It is easy to get downcast at this time of year; the weather is bad, the state of the country is not good. Summer seems a long way away.
But God is still in control. It is He who rules the world. We need February to prepare for June.
‘Why my soul are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet prove Him, my Saviour and my God.’ Psalm 42:11
