The last few days have been freezing cold in the Western Cape. What struck me today was that although our modern weather apps give us warning of rain, cold fronts and bad weather, we still experience the extremes of our climate. We can prepare for it, but we still struggle through it!
In a spiritual sense, we don't have 'Apps' to tell us that we are going to be facing storms or inclement weather, but we do have warning signs that things may be strained. It is in these moments that we need to do some introspection and to be honest where we stand with God. I have found that these are moments where we can experience profound transformation.
Related to the theme of cold and freezing are these 2 verses:
Job 37:10 - God’s breath sends the ice, freezing wide expanses of water.
Thought: When we are physically cold, we do something to make ourselves warmer. When we are spiritually lukewarm what do we do in order to change that?
Living in Grace
