Psalm 77:18 (King James Version) — 

The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven:

the lightnings lightened the world:

the earth trembled and shook.


In that wonderful hymn “How Great Thou Art” we sing “I  hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed.”  While most of us want to be in the safety of our homes during a violent storm, storm chasers are out following the storms and filming them.  To see what you are missing while you are huddled in your basement, watch this magnificent video of:

the best shots of two years of storm chasing.”



II Samuel 22:12-14:

12  (The Lord) made darkness his canopy around him—
    the dark rain clouds of the sky.
13 Out of the brightness of his presence
    bolts of lightning blazed forth.
14 The Lord thundered from heaven;
    the voice of the Most High resounded.

Psalm 135:6-7:

The Lord does whatever pleases him,
    in the heavens and on the earth,
    in the seas and all their depths.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
    he sends lightning with the rain
    and brings out the wind from his storehouses.

Psalm 77:16-18 :  

16 The waters saw you, God,
    the waters saw you and writhed;
    the very depths were convulsed.
17 The clouds poured down water,
    the heavens resounded with thunder;
    your arrows flashed back and forth.
18 Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind,
    your lightning lit up the world;
    the earth trembled and quaked.

Luke 8:22-25  —  One day Jesus got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.”  So they set out, and as they sailed he fell asleep.  And a storm of wind came down on the lake, and they were filling with water, and were in danger.  And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!”  And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves; and they ceased, and there was a calm.  He said to them, “Where is your faith?”  And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even wind and water, and they obey him?”


O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, 
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; 
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, 
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!
