Psalm 18:6-15

In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came before Him, into His ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because He was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from His mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under His feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering, His canopy around Him— the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of His presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The Lord thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot His arrows and scattered my enemies, great bolts of lightning and routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.

This is the longest passage we will have on one day but what wonderful imagery in these verses…I had to include them all! We should never forget God’s power to scatter our enemies and the enemies of our prodigal. Our Father is fiercely loyal to us.

When the prodigal cries out to him, He will come to them mounted on the cherubim, flying in to rescue. I’m praying the prodigal reaches the place soon when they will cry out. They won’t be disappointed!
