He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
It amazes me that everything has a purpose in God’s kingdom even snow. God commands snow to fall on earth. It’s soft cold whiteness can fill a field in a matter of hours like magic.
Snow brings laughter and joy to the young, especially when school is called off, but it has even more significance to our world. Snow’s blanket over millions of miles in the north during winter helps regulate the earth’s temperature. It’s reflective energy helps cool the planet which leads to less climate change. When snow melts, the needed water fills our rivers with a clean source of water. Huge amounts of snow can even delay the warming of a region and delay the arrival of spring and summer. Soil that has had snow on it is richer and more nutrient packed. It can even act as armor to protect from soil erosion. In areas where permafrost occurs, snow provides shelter for animals. As you can see, God designed snow to help us in many miraculous ways.
I find hope and faith when I meditate on how God uses something as simple and delicate as snow. While He made snow as an intricate tool to help us His creation, I also stand amazed at the beauty of His design. Every snowflake is filled unique, beautiful crystals. In fact, a single snowflake blends more than 200 ice crystals! These tiny creations feature exquisite engineering on a micro level. Each crystal forms miraculously when water vapor freezes and passes through clouds. Even the most expert scientists can not provide explanations of why these ice crystals always form into hexagonal perfect shapes. It is a scientific mystery, illustrating the supreme creative powers of God.
As I think on the miracle of one, individual snowflake and the extreme precision of its creation, I find faith and hope in my own life.
He cares for me so much more than the birds of the air and the snow that falls to the ground. My problems are nothing to Him. He can create solutions and inject them into my own life with ease. His ways are so mysterious to me, but …..
