The Cold Creeps In
The Devil creeps and schemes. The Devil shall come in many forms, to task you, to haunt you. The minions of the Devil, the demons from beyond whisper, taunt, tease and take over the hearts of people who once were good. The season of winter how harsh it can be.
A Russian Proverb.
|Готовь сани летом, а телегу зимой.||While it is fine weather mend your sails.|
When the waters around you freeze, the winds blow the ice around and create a frozen waist land, do not let your heart turn into a frozen decollate place. Job 37:6-10 “For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.7 He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. 8 Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.” Don’t let your heart be covered in ice. Don’t let your heart be hardened by sorrow, don’t let your pain bury you in snow. Vengeance can bury you in the mountains of snow. Song of Solomon 2:11-12 “11 for behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. 12 The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing[a] has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.”
The blossoms may rise by spring, but remember the blossoms may only sprout after winter. The winter must come to offer rebirth. Sometimes you must allow it to be torn down to the bedrock to rebuild. The undertaking of a task of the Devil to show you as a person you are vulnerable. The hero to protect you in the winter is Jesus. Darkness cannot exist while there is light. The snow cannot remain when the sun warms the air. Only those who grieve will remain in permanent winter. Let the Sun of God warm your heart and melt the snow. Let the Sun of God protect you from the harsh winds and ice. Only love can save the frozen heart. The love of God.
2 Timothy 1:7 “7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” God is in control, never fear and never doubt.
When there is peace, rest, relax, praise God, but always prepare for war. When your heart is weary from battle, take heed that God will be your respite.
