As we enter the Autumn Season our surroundings change.
Trees changing colors and shedding the old leaves.
The air begins to get crisp, with a chill in the air.
Below are 4 scriptures for you to ponder as the seasons change. I encourage you to write them down in your journal and then really meditate on God’s word. How can this season be powerful for you?
“Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding…” – Daniel 2:20-21
Our God is Creator of all things; ruler over time. Throughout the autumn season, take some time to think about how God created the changing seasons.
Fall is such a beautiful time, and isn’t it incredible that our Heavenly Father created each color of the the changing leaves a set the setting sun into motion?
Take some time outside taking in the fresh air and beautiful colors of fall.
“The best of the first fruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of the Lord your God.” – Exodus 23:19
Autumn is a time of harvest, which is an excellent time to not only remember but to practice the giving of first fruits.
This fall season, do a little study on what it means to give the first fruits. What can you give to the Lord this year, physically or spiritually?
Are you giving Him the first and best or the leftovers?
“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” – Matthew 9:37
There are so many people who don’t know about the love of Jesus.
How can you live out your faith in such a way that others might know Jesus?
“Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient.” – James 5:7-8
Another prevalent thing to ponder this autumn is patience.
We planted several knew fruit bushes and various flower bulbs in our backyard, but we won’t see the fruits of our labor until next year, or possibly the year after that.
What does God have to teach you about patience this season?
