    Maybe God is really self conscious. Meaning he's not confident about how he looks. Just like when we're self conscious. Most of the time even when we're attractive we still hate people taking pictures of us bc of our self esteem. Anyway God is probably not the same ugly old man you see in those paintings or sculptures. But when he sees what we've created he probably feels even more awful about himself. But he can't tell us that so that's why there's stuff like tornados

    Hi Carmen and welcome. I haven't seen God produce anything against me that didn't grow me up in Christ.
    Ultimately God is in control of everything, but as the god of this world Satan has mighty power and in 2 Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, we find that with God’s permission he had power over everything Job had except his life. And the things that occurred worked together for Job’s good. We read in Rom 8:28 that all things work together for good to them that love God, and in Job 1:1 God proclaimed that Job was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

    This following excerpt is pretty informative by “gotquestion?.org
    https://www.gotquestions.org/weather-Satan.html

    "If Satan could impact the weather, it would only be by God's permission, and restrained, as in the case of Job. Satan was allowed by God to torment Job in order to test him, and this included "the fire of God" (probably lightning) which "fell from the sky and burned up the sheep and the servants" (Job 1:16). This was followed by a "mighty wind" (possibly a tornado) that destroyed his home and killed his children (vv. 18-19). So if the fire from heaven and the tornado were somehow caused by Satan, they were still under the ultimate control of God for His purposes."
    Blessings in Christ Jesus. :wave2
