11 He made
[shiyth] darkness [choshek] his
secret place; [cether] his pavilion [cukkah] round about [cabiyb] him
were dark [cheshkah] waters [mayim] and thick clouds [`ab] of
the skies. [shachaq] KJV-Interlinear
11 He made
darkness His hiding place, His canopy around Him, Darkness of waters, thick
clouds of the skies. NASB
The descriptive symbolism of God riding the clouds of a powerful storm, reigns in hand, whip for thunder and lightning.
The darkness and secret place describe the thickness and depth of the storm stretching from horizon to horizon, totally engulfing and surrounding God as He drives the storm of judgment and finality.
The pavilion, the waters, the thick clouds, add to the description of a powerful and driving storm, with clouds surging and filled with water and rain, massive movement due to high winds, driving the clouds from layer to layer, from new clouds intermixing with other clouds, layered from the ground to the highest of elevations.
This description continues to describe the vast and unmatchable power that cannot be imitated or duplicated or controlled, nor even defended against, by man. Before the storm there is no hiding place, no place to run, no escape.
Your life stands before you and your destiny is in the decisions of your hands, but so too is Gods final say in the matter. And from that final evaluation, there is no way to avoid it.
