Clouds will vary in terms of type, form and color. The colors of the clouds would depend on the weather condition. When the weather is fair, it appears cottony with a flat base and distinct outlines, and colors range from white to light gray.  If there is a persistent rain the color would be dark gray. This is a nimbostratus cloud, featureless layers of clouds, thick enough to block out the sun. “He covers the heavens with clouds; he prepares rain for the earth; he makes grass grow on the hills” (Psalm147:8).

 

One evening, I have a vision coming from the spirit of God. It is all about the “clouds of life”. Our lives can be compared to the clouds in the sky. As we can imagine the clouds looks frail and weak. However, it performs the greatest role in this world. Because without these clouds what will happen to the earth we are dwelling in? Definitely, in the long run we will surely die of starvation. Which the skies pour down and drop on mankind abundantly” (Job 36: 28).

 

The clouds though weak it has the greatest duty to provide rain for plants and animals survival. The water is one of the factors for plant growth and development. The plant is the source of food for both human and animals. Somehow in this life, our spirits becomes feeble because of trials that we encounter. Thus, drive us to hopelessness, like the clouds we also play an important role in this life. God uses our flaws so that we will be useful according to His purpose. Therefore, my friend, move and be fruitful like the clouds in the sky. “In the light of a king’s face there is life, and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain” (Proverbs 16:15).
