“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
Genesis 8:22 (NIV)
Canada is famous for our changing seasons. The Thomas Cook website says this about Spring in Canada: “Similarly, springtime (March 20th to June 20th) can be a bit chilly if you are visiting from a warmer country like India. April is known for its precipitation, so prepare for different types of weather to get the most from your Canadian spring vacation. In May, you will notice the warming weather along with beautiful flowers, leaves, and greenery blossoming in the environment. May is one of the best months to visit Canada.”
God is in control. Maybe you needed to hear that today. There are many days when our world seems to be spinning out of control. That could be in the world in general, and it certainly has been lately, or in our personal lives. Many people these days are wondering if anyone is in control, if any of our leaders know what they are doing. Is the world really spinning out of control? The Bible speaks clearly to this in Genesis 8:22: “‘As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.’” God is in control. Moses, who wrote Genesis, saw this in the consistent changing of the seasons. If God the Creator could keep the universe functioning regularly, surely He has the ability to keep our lives in His care. No matter how crazy life seems right now, no matter how challenging, the sun came up this morning, and it will again tomorrow. In these regular rhythms of life, see the Lord also in control of your life as well. Put your trust in Jesus Christ – He is in control.
These have been words from the heart.
