You heard it here first! 2007 is going to be the coldest year yet. I know, the Scientists have come out to say exactly the opposite, but when next December comes around and we’ve had a balmy summer or more snow than you can imagine in December, I’ll have to remind you about this post!
What never ceases to amuse me is how we seem to think we can predict the future. From the weather person on TV that seems to never get the forecast right to the economists that try to guess whether the market will go up or down in the current year, we consistently find that we fail when it comes to predicting what will happen in the big things and in the small things.
It’s at these times of uncertainty that we invest in gold– no, I’m kidding. It’s at times like these when we can have even more confidence in our unchanging God– because His predictions have always come true. Take, for instance, the flood in Noah’s Day, that Abraham would have a child, and the biggest one of all, that God Himself would come to the Earth to die for the sins of mankind.
So take comfort that even though we may not know the future, God does. Whether it is the warmest year since 1600 (one wonders what the real record is!), the coldest or just average, He is still the same, and still working all things together for good to those that love Him and are called according to His purpose.
