Dark Clouds


There is a really odd verse in the Bible. You may have skipped over it a hundred times. It’s found in 1 Kings, a book you probably have never read with much intent.

“Then spoke Solomon, ‘The Lord spoke from a dark cloud'” (1 Kings 8:12).

I’m all about God speaking through the beauty of nature. I see God in sunrise, sunset, birds chipping, rivers flowing, and snow falling.

But dark clouds?

Here’s the message. When you and I are traversing easy ground, God is there, to be sure. But it is during the storms of life that we need him the most. And he is always there.

Are you going through a storm right now? Are the clouds gathering overhead? When your world gets darkest and the sun is not shining, take heart. The voice of God is about to speak.
