00513 - The Wonders of Glaciers

These towering giants are a spectacle. Cold, relentless, yet awe-inspiringly beautiful. They actually move at a snail's pace as Ice is compressed and pushed to the surface, but their impact on shaping the land is nothing short of monumental. Job 37:10 (NIV) says, "The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen."

When you stand before the Hubbard or Mendenhall glaciers in Alaska for instance, there's a sense of being in the presence of creation. It's like nature's cathedral, where each ice formation is like a crafted sculpture, demonstrating the power of God.

Just like the majestic glaciers carve valleys and shape landscapes, the 'breath of God' can transform our lives, moulding us in ways we can't even fathom. In a world that's always in a hurry, glaciers show us the beauty of taking things slow, while still leaving a lasting impact on everything it touches.

Quote Glaciers remind us of the tremendous power of God in creation.


Thank You Father for the majesty of Your creation. Amen.
