As-Salaam alaikum,
Says Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, in the Holy Qur'an:--

"And [Nay], the thunder extols His [glory] and Praises; and so do the angels in awe of Him.
And He lets loose the thunderbolts and strikes with them who He wills, yet these (are the men)
who (dare to) dispute about Allah with the strength of His power (supreme)" !
( Ra'ad 13:13)

Ra'ad is said to be an angel, as big as the thumb. He has a whip with which he hits the cloud(s); he is responsible for the cloud in the sky. For those who study physics, you know that when two clouds hit together, they make [produce] an electric shock, they discharge electricity and then you can hear that loud thunder sound. If you bring 220 volts and put 2 wires together, what happens? Sparks will fly, with big explosion.

So in this regards, Allah Ta'ala shows that in stature, His angel Ra'ad is small, yet he is Praising his Lord, and Allah gave him that power to hit the clouds with his whip... just as ayat 13 of Surat Ra'ad explains above.
