“He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes; He casts out His hail like morsels; Who can stand before His cold?”  (Psalm 147:16-17)

We are subject to creation.  Cold, hot, wind, rain, snow and tempest affect us.  The One who created these things is not affected.  He made these things that we may live and know Him, but He does not need them.  Look to the One through whom all things were made and by Him alone be moved.  Do not be moved by the things of this world, but by the Creator of all worlds.

Lord, my humanity has me bouncing around more that I care to admit.  I am impressed by small things and not by You, the Maker of all things.  Lead me in the way of truth that I may understand more fully Your goodness and mercy.  Guide me in the way of life that I may be led into the salvation You have prepared in the sight of all people.  Lead me, O Lord!

Lord Jesus, You have come in flesh and know our weakness.  You know how we become afraid in storms and have doubts when we do not see that You are with us.  Lift me up in faith that I may fulfill the first great commandment and love You above all things.  You alone can stand up to all things and You have stood before all things for our sake that we may have life in You now and forever.  Amen.
