God vs. gods
Last weekend, there was an intense thunderstorm that swept across the northern part of Indiana. My wife and I were at a wedding most of the afternoon, but drove home through the tail end of it.
It was pretty crazy to see the flashes of ligtning light up the night sky. They were graphic reminders of God’s power and His wonderful creation.
The whole incident was also a reminder to me of how many other people in many other places at many other times have attributed similar events to many other false gods. In fact, most other cultures throughout history would attribute such a display to one god, then attribute the rain or floods to another, and also attribute the safe journey that I made/they would make to another god/gods.
I am so thankful that I know the truth, that there is one true God in charge of it all. He’s the mighty Creator of heaven and earth and He’s also the gracious Redeemer and Protector of His children. We have a great God:
“Now this I know: The Lord gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God” (Ps. 20:6-7)
