Please no "Mother Nature"

I am the Light by Danny Hahlbohm
I am the Light

I don't know about you, but it really disturbs me to hear a weather forecaster talking about help needed from mother nature. I heard part of a sermon about the providence of God. The preacher was also referring to some awesome things God had done in early battles for George Washington and some others. He was talking about God riding upon the storm, His footsteps upon the sea, and how He rides upon the shore. Some Bible verses I hear I think are awesome.

I looked up some verses ~

2Sa 22:12 -
And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies.

Job 20:6 -
Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;

Job 22:14 -
Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.

Job 26:8 -
He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

Job 36:29 -
Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle?

Job 37:16 -
Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

Ps 18:11 -
He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

Ps 18:12 -
At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

Ps 78:23 -
Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,

Ps 97:2 -
Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

Ps 104:3 -
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

Ps 147:8 -
Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

Da 7:13 -
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Joe 2:2 -
A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

Na 1:3 -
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

Mt 24:30 -
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Hi Cathy -
I agree with you completely. I'm bothered by the 'Mother Nature', too. If we are at home alone when I hear it on the news I usually say - outloud - 'Father God'!

I talk out loud a lot to the TV. :o) My dog used to wonder what was going on.

Thank you for all the scriptures! I remember when my kids were young and we heard someone use the term "mother nature"--I used it to teach them once and for all that there is only one Master of the universe (remember that kid's show?)--I don't think they've forgotton it!

You're welcome and thank you for visiting, Molly. No, I don't remember that show. I searched clouds at a Bible website. There are many verses.
