Trees Clapping Their Hands
It's storm season here in Oklahoma and that means that the winds are indeed whipping down the plain. While taking my daily walk the other day I went through an area where there was little activity and the street noise was minimal. The wind was moving, sort of a rushing mighty wind, and it caused me to think about Acts 2 and what that entire Upper Room experience must have been like. When the wind blows, everything that it touches moves. When the wind(Holy Spirit) touches you, well...you will move too!
As it hit the trees I thought of this short little verse in Isaiah. Living in joy and peace and mountains bursting into song with the trees clapping their hands. It was so quiet that it really did sound like a wave a applause as the wing blew through the trees. God is so good and He shows up in everything. You just have to be looking for Him!
Today I pray that the wind blows through your life and brings you all kinds of joy and peace. God is for you. Even His creation is for you...the trees are clapping to cheer you on! Can you hear them?
