For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return there without watering the earth...
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth..."
We've had a lot of snow this year in Michigan. Everywhere you look there are piles of snow. We normally have a "January thaw" where the temperatures warm up enough so most of it melts, so in the Spring we don't end up with a flood. However this year we didn't get a January thaw either. I'm wondering what the Spring is going to look like!
Snow is water--frozen water--that is stored until the ground is ready to receive it. This water which we need to make the earth bring forth fruit, is just waiting for the ground to be ready. It's the cold which keeps it frozen and the cold which is keeping the ground hard. When there are tough, "cold," times in your life be sure to allow the Son to soften your heart so you remain open to the Word of God. Because when you do, the flood of God's provision will come and cause you to produce the fruit you are called to produce.
Snow is like God's grace. He's waiting for us, waiting for our hearts to soften so we can receive His Words. Even if we're not ready yet, its waiting for us to get ready. The tough times are not bad, they are holding God's grace and provision for you until the proper season! Let the Son shine!
