The natural elements can help us or hurt us. When God parted the Red Sea he used his creation to benefit humans, his children. Although we go through storms in life we can be assured that Christ withstood the storm of our sins. As Christ hung on the cross the world went dark as a sign of god's judgement on him. What was happening physically to the world was happening on the cosmic level to Christ as he was judged in our place.
1 When Israel went out from Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, 2 Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
3 The sea looked and fled; Jordan turned back. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.
5 What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back? 6 O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8 who turns the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a spring of water.
