While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease. - Genesis 8-22
The wonderful array of autumn colours remind us of God’s handiwork in our universe. The birds and woodland creatures are aware of winter approaching, so they plan their food supply or fly away to warmer climates.
God has promised eight blessings in this verse - His faithfulness is constant. In fact, it will never cease while the earth remains! 🌍
Give thanks to God for His love in sending His Son to redeem us and for His daily provision in our lives. Pray for those who don’t enjoy these blessings.
“For the beauty of the earth,
for the beauty of the skies,
for the love which from our birth
over and around us lies:
Christ, our God, to thee we raise
this our sacrifice of praise.”
