The storm thickened, and the clouds pouring forth torrents of rain combined to form the secret chamber of the invisible but wonder-working God. “Pavilioned in impervious shade” faith saw him, but no other eye could gaze through the “_thick clouds of the skies_.” Blessed is the darkness which encurtains my God; if I may not see him, it is sweet to know that he is working in secret for my eternal good. Even fools can believe that God is abroad in the sunshine and the calm, but faith is wise, and discerns him in the terrible darkness and threatening storm.
HINTS TO PREACHERS.
Verse 11.–The darkness in which Jehovah hides. Why? When? What then? etc.
