Blasphemed God

Great hailstones, about the weight of a talent, came down out of the sky on people. People blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for this plague is exceedingly severe.  Revelation 16:21  WEB

In a region where it never got cold enough to snow, one day, the skies turned dark with clouds. It looked like it was going to rain. But instead of drops of water falling from the sky, balls of ice began striking the windows of the house and bouncing around the patio floor outside the windows. A father held his toddlers in his arms so that they could see the spectacle. They cooed and cheered as the ground outside grew whiter like it had snowed. For this man, the scene was a beautiful reminder of the wonders found in His Father in Heaven. While mankind could only watch and hope the hail did not destroy their crops or their cars, God displayed His power through nature.

On the news that afternoon and at work the next day, people spoke of the hailstorm. But God´s name was not mentioned. For the rest of the world, He had no hand in what had happened. Revelation speaks to us of a terrible storm of hail that will get people´s attention. But instead of making people want to worship God, they will say that He is terrible for sending such destruction upon us. What should make man bow down in wonder before the Almighty, will make them angry against the God who has tried hard to get their attention. What will be our response when God tries to call us unto Him?

Dear Lord,

Move in power today. And when we see that You are moving, help us turn our hearts to You in wonder and worship, we pray!

Amen
