The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.
We are almost at the end of October, and the trees, flowers and plants are dying back and getting ready for winter. If you are like me, although I think the autumn colours are beautiful, I really do not like autumn, mainly because of the darker evenings. Nevertheless, we all know that creation must go through its cycle in order to bring about new life when the Spring comes again.
Like nature, we also go through seasons of life that do not have to do with the weather. The author of Ecclesiastes told us there is a season for every activity under the sun—a time appointed by God during which we live our lives (3:1–11).
Moses spoke of a new season in his life after he led the people of Israel through the wilderness (Deuteronomy 31:2), and he had to give up his leadership role to Joshua. And Paul faced a lonely season while he was under house arrest in Rome; Asking for visitors but realizing that God was “at my side” (2 Timothy 4:17).
Regardless of the season of life, let us give thanks to God for His greatness, His help, and His companionship in every season.
Creator God, I lift my voice to You with a thankful heart of praise, for all Your help, and companionship that You show me daily, thank You for Your creation, but more than all this, I thank You for my Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
