We see the power he has over the elements
Romans 1:20 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
20 For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made. As a result, people are without excuse.
- God directs the snow
Job 37: 6-7 “He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down. Then everyone stops working so they can watch his power.
Psalm 147:16 New Living Translation (NLT)
16 He sends the snow like white wool;
he scatters frost upon the ground like ashes.
- He stores it in His storehouses
Job 38:22 New Living Translation (NLT)
22 “Have you visited the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of hail?
- Shows us the purity of white and a picture of what He does to our red sin
Psalm 51:7 New Living Translation (NLT)
7 Purify me from my sins,[a] and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Isaiah 1:18 New Living Translation (NLT)
18 “Come now, let’s settle this,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson,
I will make them as white as wool.
- Snow is a provision, a watering source for food and causes growth for the farmer.
Isaiah 55:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 “The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.
- Jesus appearance is likened to snow his clothes his hair
Revelation 1:14 New Living Translation (NLT)
14 His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire.
Matthew 28:3 New Living Translation (NLT)
3 His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow.
Psalm 46:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”
The Message Translation states He has snow and hail stockpiled for times of trouble.
Have you ever traveled to where snow is made,
seen the vault where hail is stockpiled,
The arsenals of hail and snow that I keep in readiness
for times of trouble and battle and war?
We also build our “stockpiles” for times of trouble. Bring on the bread and milk? What if God is using the snow to show us something needs purifying in us? What if he wants us to see his Power and show our need for Him in time of trouble?
His warnings are apparent.
Snow is symbolic for cleansing Isaiah 1:18
He cleans us white as snow.
He wants to settle with you Sister and clean you as pure and beautiful as the snow you see today in the Carolina’s. He is saying Come. I will make (insert your name) as white as snow.
We need purification
We need his power
We need his provision
We need to pause and Consider Him
