More ice on the roads? More snow in the forecast? Why?!? Read these words from the book of Job in the Bible: “God says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’ So that everyone he has made may know his work, he stops all people from their labor” (Job 37:6-7).
God loves to find ways – especially by using nature – to stop us from our frantic schedules and help us marvel at God’s power and grace. Our lives don’t depend on how busy we are. They depend on our God who not only sends the snow and rain, but also sent his Son Jesus to be our Savior. It’s a blessing to have to slow down and recognize God’s work in our lives!
