In honor of the weather situation across much of the united States…
The Scripture mentions snow several times.
Often as a term of comparison/contrast “whiter than snow”, etc.
The book of Job has amazing insight into the Most High.
Insight that is often neglected or ignored by the Body.
5 “God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
6 “For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
And to the downpour and the rain, ‘Be strong.’
God does wondrous things which we cannot comprehend.
He speaks these forth.
One of them is that He tells the snow to fall on the earth.
He knows where every flake lands.
He knows the design of every flake.
He knows the number of them.
He knows the rate of melting.
22 “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,
Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,
23 Which I have reserved for the time of distress,
For the day of war and battle?
The Lord is asking an extended series of questions to Job.
One of them…”have you entered the storehouses of the snow”?
Did Job understand the mystery of snow?
Did he know the purpose?
In the same sentence the Lord mentions hail.
Hail reserved for the time of distress...for the day of war and battle.
Hail was used by God to deliver Israel from Egypt.
Hail was used by God in battle.
Hail will be used by God when He judges unbelieving mankind…
And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, *came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.
Have you considered the wonder of God’s creation?
We experience the Creation once judged.
We rejoice in it.
Yet, something greater is come.
As we watch the flakes of snow, may we rejoice in the wonder and glory of the Most High.
