The Earth Trembles

Reg Grant on December 8, 2009 in DTS Devotional

I’ve been reading in the Psalms recently and it struck me how powerful the Lord is. “His lightning bolts light up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the sovereign Master of the whole earth. (Ps. 97:4, 5) Did you know that a single lightning bolt generates temperatures five times hotter than the six thousand degrees found at the surface of the sun? Praise God that he is so patient, that the power He could exercise in judgment is overshadowed by his love and his mercy. That He is the light and not the lightning of the world.
