The Lord Thy God
Poem By Matthew Bresette
The wind tore mountains
Earthquakes shook buildings
Fire consumed all things
Whispering is heard throughout the land
Who is in the wind that tore mountains? Is it the Lord thy God? No, he
isn’t the wind.
Who is the earthquake that shook buildings? Is it the Lord thy God? No,
he isn’t an earthquake.
Who is the fire that consumed all things? Is it the Lord thy God? No, he
isn’t the fire.
Who is the whisperer that is heard throughout the land? Is it the Lord
thy God? Yes, he is the whisperer.
Why did God order the wind to tear down mountains? Because the people
have sinned against Him.
Why did God order earthquakes to shake buildings? Because the unrighteous
outweighs the righteous in number.
Why did God order fire to consume all things? Because fire is pure in
spirit and in form.
Why did you whisper throughout the land? Because to let people know I am
always there always watching them.
To let people know that I am just a whisper away
To let people know there is someone to talk to even though no one is
To let people know that I am the Lord thy God who created them out of
To let people know that I am the Lord thy God who will come back at any
second at any time of the day.
1 Kings 19: 11,12
“11…Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered
the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the
wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
12After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And
after the fire came a gentle whisper.” (NIV)
