“The clouds are the dust of His feet” (Nahum 1:3). If you’re feeling cloud dust today, praise the Lord, it means He’s near. I will leave you with this thought from Oswald Chambers,
It is not true to say that God wants to teach us something in our trials. Through every cloud He brings our way, He wants us to unlearn something. His purpose in using the cloud is to simplify our beliefs until our relationship with Him is exactly like that of a child–a relationship simply between God and our own souls, and where other people are but shadows.
