Over my life time I have been privileged to live in cold, warm, and temperate locations. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. Right now, snow shoveling is getting to be a drag.
However, God made a promise to us in Genesis 8:22. “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
God keeps His promises. I am glad He does. The fact that each day the sun comes up indicates that God does not lie. It is winter in Alaska, but somewhere on our globe it is summer. Did it ever occur to you that the food we eat is a direct fulfillment of this promise? And yes, it is cold here and warm somewhere else.
What a great God, who can in one verse, promise harvests, seasons, food, and different types of weather. Each is fulfilled daily.
Today, think about some others promises God has made to us. Did He keep His promise? This should encourage us to trust Him even more. He has never broken His word and never will.
Time to shovel more snow.
