Bravo, God, bravo! Gods and all angels shout, "Encore!" In awe before the glory, in awe before God’s visible power. Psalm 29:1 (TM)
In our technological age, we are bombarded with televised images of weather disasters through cable, satellite and the internet. Hollywood raises the ante and entertains us with wild, imaginative displays of nature gone awry. I wonder if, in the flood of images, we become numb to what we are really seeing. Do these things inspire us to wonder at God’s power and might, or do they get mixed in with the millions of other images and our brains simply process them as nothing more than the usual input?
David saw God in the thunderstorm and in the flood. We tend to see only that our golf game was ruined or that tonight’s commute is going to be a killer.
