Bad Weather – Good News
DECEMBER 01, 2021
KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Ezekiel 38:22-23 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
Winter seems to be just around the corner. In fact, for some it seems to be here now. The winds are blowing, and snow starts falling. The days go by so fast, as night comes earlier, and the morning sun sleeps in just a little longer. To some folks this seems like a time of year that is dreary and sad. It is said more suicides occur during the winter months than any other time of the year. People let the elements affect their attitude.
However, we as Christians can look at it another way if we will. God so often uses the weather and the elements to show His awesome power and control. The wind, rain, hail, fire, waters and yes, even the snow is mentioned in the Bible several times. God has used them often to make sure people know He is God, and he controls all things, including nature. In fact, He is the only one who can control nature. He is the only one to direct the wind in the heavens above us. He is the only one to decide how much rain will fall and where. He controls the sun and moon and the amount of light we get each day. He is totally in control. Let this time of year just be a reminder in our life that if He can control the weather, He can also control the situations in our life.
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
So, as you look out the window and see the wind blowing… See God. As you witness the snow falling… See God. As the daylight comes to an end… See God. Now thank Him for the evidence that He is still there and still in control of everything. Let the elements control your attitude. Let them bring peace to your heart knowing He is still there and still around to love you too.
