Man, it is cold outside!! The skies are dark, snow flurries are blowing in the mountains, and the wind—oh my goodness! The winds of winter have arrived early.
God reveals Himself through wind. In the creation of man, God breathed into the wind, the breath of life. He appeared to Job in a whirlwind. He caused a wind to blow across the Red Sea, parting the waters and allowing His children to cross over to safety.
Jesus explained to Nicodemus that being born again was a mystery that man cannot understand. “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”(John 3:8) God’s Spirit moved with power upon the early church, coming upon them like a mighty rushing wind.” (Acts 2:2)
So bundle up and stay warm. God is at work in the wind. In a manner of months, the winds will change direction and the warmth of spring will return. As the Psalmist said, God speaks to His creation through the wind; “He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.”
