Bible Ballistics: BBs #220 A Fortnight Of Thanks-Living #10
I thank God for seasons. The beauty and delight in the changing of the amazing seasons. From the joy and delight of the new life that comes in the spring, to the warm (or hot if you’re in Southwest Oklahoma!!) and fruitful months of summer, then into my favorite season of change—the lovely vibrant colors of fall, and of course the necessary cold weather of winter, the beauty of snow, and yes, even the ice when it leaves a wonderland of glimmering crystal across the landscape.
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22
God set the seasons and He maintains all that is on this planet according to HIS timetable. I praise God for HIS sovereign rule in this world, and I hope that you have learned to trust Him in all. As I often am heard to say, “My confidence is in God, not the government nor the weatherman!” How about you can you thank God and praise Him for all the beauty of His creation and the seasons of nature, as well as the seasons of our lives and times? Remember He made it all—including you and me!!
“The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun. 17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.” Psalm 74:16-17
And we can thank God for His faithful sovereign control in holding this world together.
who at sundry times
and in divers manners
in time past unto the fathers
by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days
spoken unto us by his Son,
whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
and the express image of his person,
and upholding all things
by the word of his power,
when he had by himself purged our sins,
on the right hand
of the Majesty on high:” Hebrews 1:1-3
Jesus IS the glue who is holding all things together. And praise HIS name for giving us beauty to enjoy, air to breath, and strength from the produce of the earth that HE created. So take some time today and thank God for the seasons, the beauty and the sustenance of the fruit of HIS earth!!!
Don’t let the spiritual harvest come and you NOT be ready!!
“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. 21 For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.” Jeremiah 8:20-21
