God has power over all creation from water to the spiritual storms in our lives.
Nehemiah 8:17-18 Good News Translation (GNT)
17 All the people who had come back from captivity built shelters and lived in them. This was the first time it had been done since the days of Joshua son of Nun, and everybody was excited and happy. 18 From the first day of the festival to the last they read a part of God's Law every day. They celebrated for seven days, and on the eighth day there was a closing ceremony, as required in the Law.

17 This was not them having housing but them celebrating the feast of booths. They pitched tents to show as a reminder that God lead them as a people thru the wilderness. It also shows to trust God so that wandering around is the result of not having faith in the Lord and not letting Him lead us.
18 They kept it as God intended it to be done. It wasnt not meant to be a time of punishment but celebration and they did this part in honor to God.
