Are they predicting snow where you live? We have predictions ranging from one to three inches by the late afternoon. Some people have heard it and are already mad at the school system for not canceling school. Now not a flake of snow has fallen, it has only been predicted. Why would they cancel school based on a prediction? They have been wrong with predictions before and it wouldn’t make sense to react to a prediction. We need to wait until there is some factual evidence before putting people in panic mode (because in the south when it snows, people go into panic mode). The next thing you know, everyone will be rushing to the grocery store to buy up all the milk and bread. Now, I’m not saying it won’t snow. I am simply saying we do not need to freak out.
Many of us live our lives like we’ve had a snowy forecast predicted. We walk around anticipating the worst and live our lives as if it were fact instead of just a concern or possibility. Matthew 6:25-34 tells us we should not worry. The Lord knows what we need and He will provide it. He has authority over our circumstances and they must obey Him [Mark 4:39].
We serve a good God and He desires to give His children good gifts [Matthew 7:11]. We can trust Him with our lives and our circumstances. He is faithful and just [1 John 1:9]. He loves you and He desires for you to live in abundant life, not a fearful one [John 10:10, 1 John 4:18]. He desires for you to live life out of peace based on Him [John 20:26]. Peace is a gift from Him [John 14:27]. We don’t have to earn it. All we have to do is receive it.
Don’t live life based on predictions and fear of what might be. Live life based on the Word of God. You can trust it for accuracy and it will guide you through all that comes your way [2 Timothy 3:16].
