On the second day of creation, God separated the waters above from the waters below (space) and created weather cycles — water evaporates here, wind carries clouds to a new place and there is precipitation in one form or another.
The science of meteorology is a fascinating picture of man attempting to deny the Hand of God in nature. There are extensive and exotic models to explain, in advance, where weather will happen.
I have seen incredible accuracy as the National Weather Service tracks a storm across the Pacific and informs us that it will start raining in Los Angeles on Thursday around 3:00 p.m. And it does.
The frequent precision of time/space interaction within the natural state of affairs is reassuring to them and perpetuates the illusion that weather is simply a natural phenomenon.
The only problem is, there are substantial weather events that are a surprise to the NWS, either in origin, speed or behavior. Their models cannot anticipate the behavior or explain it after the fact.
A quick glance through Scripture shows God overriding the laws of science to cause weather events that serve His purposes.
I personally have witnessed a significant number of events that absolutely defied the predictions of the scientific model, because God choose to adjust the time/space dynamics of weather so as to use it to punish or bless someone.
Some of those things happened sovereignly. Others were the results of specific prayers of the saints that He accepted and acted on.
It introduces a fascinating dynamic when we put the first and second days side by side. On the one hand are the precision, predictability and solid building blocks for the rest of the creative process.
On the other hand, every time/space alignment is in the Hand of God and can be adjusted for His purposes at will.
A dynamic tension.
