The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart exults, and with my song I shall THANK Him. Psalm 28:7
Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field. Exodus 23:16.
To understand the fitting goal of a harvest celebration, we visit Noah right after the flood. God reminded Noah and his family—and us—of His provision for our flourishing existence on the earth. Earth would have seasons, daylight and darkness and “seedtime and harvest” (Gen. 8:22). Our gratitude for the harvest, which sustains us, goes to God alone. No matter where you are, go or live.. or how you celebrate your land’s bounty and blessings, please take a few moments today to express your gratitude to God—for we would have no harvest at all to celebrate without His grand creative design.
May I ask.. what’s your Autumn been like? Where’s your heart at? Have you been cold, lukewarm or red hot with spiritual passion for the God who is the source of all you’ve ever needed.
Perhaps this year has been kinda hard. Perhaps it's hard for you to find something to say thank you for ..cuz you are currently suffering loss or something. So sorry about that. Do you need prayer from me? Would be glad to.
Dear Creator God, thank You so much for the blessings, for the wondrous way You fashioned this world—with seasons, with friends here, with harvest-time, with everything that we need to exist.
Praise You Lord! Danke sehr! Please accept our sincere gratitude.
