cold and heat
June 29, 2017It is amazing how the weather can shift so drastically here in the Northwest. Last Sunday it got up to 100 degrees but by Wednesday we woke up to a low of 52, an almost 50 degree drop! Now, I’m not complaining because I am grateful that we see 52 a lot more often than 100. I am so much more comfortable at 52 then at 100. Those temperature swings remind me of the promise that God made to Noah after the flood. God promised this, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
Some of you are heat people, you like those hot days of 90’s and above. Others are more like me and we are just fine with the cool 70 and lower weather. Either way, the reality according to God's promise is that the seedtime and harvest we all want requires the cold as well as the heat.
Some of you today are in a cold season and you long for the heat. Some of you are in a heat season and you long for a cool breeze. Know that this season will change eventually and the two, cold and heat, are working to provide you a harvest.
This reminds me of the promise that He works all things together for our good.
Be blessed today!
