Have you ever noticed the beauty and grace of a soft winter’s snow? The puffy flakes flow softly to the ground to meet trillions of siblings. The shimmer in the night’s air is a true wonder of God. It has been said that that no two snowflakes are alike. Can you believe that? If there is one amazing wonder on this planet it is that one.
Have you noticed how many 100’s of trillions of individual flakes that must fall during one single storm? Every time I dip my hand down into the snow and look at the tiny gems my mind starts to boggle at the thought of so many multitudes of different shapes and designs. The old adage that no two snowflakes are the same cannot actually be proven true but with each individual snowflake having at least 180 billion molecules, the odds are against any two being alike.
Let’s think about this though. The bible asks in the book of Genesis 18:14, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” The LORD had just told Abraham that he and Sarah would have a baby but they were both old enough to use “walkers”. Sarah even had the audacity to laugh at the statement from the Theophany (physical manifestation of Jesus in the Old Testament) alongside the two angels of the LORD.
Realistically, would it be too hard for God to make 100’s of trillions of flakes that no two were ever exactly alike? Of course not, he is endless and he has no limits to bind him as humans have limits. Why would it be so hard for the universe maker to make so many different shapes, each one having their own character, design and essence to it? He made the universe and I’m sure us Christians will soon find out that no two stars or planets are exactly the same either.
Therefore, the next time you find yourself outside during a snow, put your hand out and behold one of God’s most delightful artisanship. Put a snowflake inside the palm of your hand and then move it side to side and watch it gladly show itself off to you as it gives glory to God in the highest.
