Good Morning January 24

Most of the U.S. is under below normal temperatures. It is 3 degrees here this morning. I just came from Minneapolis which was well below zero. We are told by the weather people that the jet stream, that high velocity air flow in the upper atmosphere, has shifted far south bringing cold arctic air with it. It’s interesting – with all of our technology and scientific knowledge we can’t do a thing about it. We can watch it, but we are powerless to change it. But then Jesus told us this two thousand years ago. He said to Nicodemus, “The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.”(John 3:8) He went on to say that this is the way God Himself operates. “So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” We know the Lord looks at the hearts of people. He knows us to the depth of our being. By His Spirit He works in us and for us. We can’t control Him or change Him, but we can give Him thanks for His everlasting love. The winds of God’s Spirit are working in you today.
