Ever wonder what God is telling us when He sends snow?

Knowing God through His Word ... Day by Day

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,
or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,
which I have reserved for the time of trouble,
for the day of battle and war?

What is the way to the place where the light is distributed,
or where the east wind is scattered upon the earth?
Job 38:22-34

Snow.BeautyI took this photo on a walk in my neighborhood last winter. I am amazed at the beauty God provides for us each day. Out of the riches of His grace, He gives wonders like snow. Ever wonder what God is telling us when He sends snow?  Check out this sermon:

What Is God Saying in the Snow,  sermon by John Piper, is available for listening (no manuscript is available)

God Knows You & Wrapped You in Eternity

Wait on the Lord

Great Wall - 1.jpg

O LORD, you have searched me and known me!Psalm 139:1

O LORD, you have examined me and understand me deeply.

You know my highs and my lows.

You see my rest and my works.

My rest is in You.

My works are Your works, prepared from before the foundations of the world.

You knew that You would empower me to climb the Great Wall six months after You healed me.

You know my thoughts and my words before I know them.

The Holy Spirit prays for me when words escape me.

You protect me and lead me.

You protected my body in the car crash.

I don’t know myself, but You know me. My thoughts are not Your thoughts.

I don’t understand why I do what I don’t want to do, but You know.

You are with me in my failure and in my success; in my despair and…

God Responds, He Doesn’t React

Daily Manna

jesus-with-children-0401Most people do not like discipline/correction and end up hurting themselves in the end, raising disobedient children, and breaking God’s heart! They have problems and just simply do not know HOW to deal with it, and want to figure it out on their own instead of asking God for help. So then when correction comes the enemy puts that lie in their minds that no one loves them, but that is not true

“Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.” – Isaiah 43:4

Just because God disciplines us does not mean He doesn’t love us, it simply means our “problems” are not acceptable to Him and we need to crusify our flesh and learn to control ourselves. Think about a child that keeps going by the hot stove and…

The Big Him 

Restored Ministries Blog

I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me. ~Psalm 13:6

For years, I understood Jesus to be only a tiny reflection of who He really is. He was primarily a teaching based on strict religious beliefs.

Reflecting back, I realize how little I related to him. How little I relied on him. How little I knew of him,though I thought at the time that it was much.

Truthfully, he was about as real as I might perceive a fairytale or superhero of some sort. The fact that I couldn’t see him, or touch him, or experience him in any measure of fullness, really hindered my ability to know Him or experience growth. My life had adapted and I left little room to conceive of anything more.

I believed in His existence, but had no idea of the power and strength He wanted to give me…

We are a laboratory of faith, and our ideas can be proved within each individual living them. I ask you today to think about your faith, your ideas and how they have proven true in your life. Oh, it may have not happened in your idea of perfect timing but it did in God’s idea of perfect timing.
There are fundamentals of the belief system that can enhance/ support, encourage, or even change your daily life experience as taught by our Savior, Jesus Christ. One of the fundamentals is that God is absolute good, and everywhere…
