Mighty Torrential Rains (Job 37:6)
Just a couple of months back Ranau town for the first time in living memory was flooded. As Job would say, the Lord is in control of waters. Rain of his might (the great rain of his strength KJV Job 37:6) so that every man's hand is sealed as no work can be done when it is all rain and floods everywhere. In LXX, it adds, "so that humans know their weakness". He thundered from above - for correction and rebuke of His wayward people and land. Yet He can order showers of blessings and to water the land so that it yields its increase. This year many villages and lands are adversely affected by floods and unceasing rains. Crops failed and trees do not bear fruits. It has been one flood after another. Only in You Lord for You are alone can settle the flood (Ps 28:10 LXX).
