Treasures of the snow…
“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?” (Job 38:22).
It appears from this text, that there aer treasures in the snow. In the Word of God,snow is compared to purity. “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isa 1:18). The Psalmist says, “Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow” (Psa 51:7). From this we understand that purity of life is like valuable treasures.
Snow is always cool. Those who live a holy life will always be gentle and comforting to others even in most distressing situations. Snow is transparent and crystal clear. If we really love purity of life, we will not show one thing on the outside and be different inside. Having a transparent character is having no hidden sins, no hidden unclean motives. Snow melts in the sunshine; the hearts of those who love holiness always melts in the presence of God.
Many people of God have not experienced the treasures found in a holy life. Please observe, what God questioned Job was not, “Has treasure entered into you?” but, “Hast thou entered into the treasure?” The ocean entering into you and you jumping into the ocean are two different things. Similarly, there is difference between holiness entering into you and you entering into holiness. When you enter into holiness of God you are inside the ocean of God’s holiness and that ocean is encompassing, covering and crowing you. It is like God possessing you, rather than you possessing God. You are enjoying the grace of God, but you enjoying the God of all grace is something better.
Dear child of God, why don’t you enter into the treasures of the snow? Why don’t you dedicate yourself right now to enter into these treasures of purity?
