“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed, or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth? Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, to water a land where no one lives, an uninhabited desert, to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass? Does the rain have a father? Who fathers the drops of dew? From whose womb comes the ice? Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens when the waters become hard as stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen?” Job 38:22-30
So many people are already impatient for Spring, warmer weather and flowers and foliage to return to the bare land. But God, in these passages, reminds us that He, Almighty Creator God, is the one who decrees the changing seasons, as He is also the ultimate authority on our world and all who live in it. In uncertain, seemingly unendingly difficult days, read these words and be comforted. And also, Colossians 1:16 remind us of Jesus “For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” Click on the image to enlarge.
