The Bible talks about snow over twenty times and if we would take the time, we could find treasures buried in it that God would bless our life with.

Here are a few:

Snow should remind us of God’s provision. Psalm 148 tells us, “Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all the depths, fire and hail, snow and clouds; stormy wind, fulfilling his word!”

The conditions must be just right for snowflakes to be born with temperatures well below the freezing point of water. Suddenly snow crystals are formed as moisture attaches to airborne particles, and as they get heavier they begin to fall where they gather more moisture and grow larger. God controls the conditions in the atmosphere and then dispenses the snow at His choosing. So if God is in control of the snow, can’t He provide for all that we need? James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

Here is the amazing thing about snowflakes; no two are exactly the same. Snowflakes have their own shape, their own identity, each one is unique. People are like the snow- no I’m not saying we’re all a little flaky. Of the nearly 8 billion people on the earth right now, there are no two alike. We have similarities, but we each have distinct characteristics that separate us from everyone else. Our fingerprints are unique, our footprints are unique and even the pattern of our retina is unique from anyone else’s. What does this say about God and His provision for us? Like snow we have a designer. We are special and have a Creator that knew us before we were formed in the womb.

Like snow, not only do we have a distinction in the way that we look, but God also has a distinct purpose for each one of our lives. Snow has more of a purpose than just to grace our landscape with beauty and like snow we have a destiny. God has provided a way for us to connect with His purpose for our lives! Isaiah 55 says, “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

God sent His word, saying that if people would call on His name, they would be saved. Then He sent His Word in person (Jesus), to take people’s sins away. Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

So I say, LET IT SNOW!
