Work isn’t usually something we talk about in a positive light. But as we’ll see in these Bible Verses about Work, labor is a gift from God.

This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.

Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God.

Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.

Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

                                            Psalm 127:1-5

 

 

But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

                                           1 Timothy 5:8 ESV

 

 

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

 

Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

 

Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

                                              Matthew 7:15-20

 

 

If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them. Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need. Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: “The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near,” so that you do not show ill will toward the needy among your fellow Israelites and give them nothing. They may then appeal to the Lord against you, and you will be found guilty of sin. Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land.

                                           Deuteronomy 15:7-11 NIV

Bible Verse about Labor of Love

Faith can sometimes seem like labor, even though it is a labour of love.

So, like the Apostle Paul, let’s give thanks for the labor of love we have in faith and in our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

                                           1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 ESV

 

Powerful Bible Verses about the Sabbath Day of Rest

 

The opposite of work is rest. And this special Labor Day holiday is all about rest.

But before the government thought it was a good idea, God had a plan for us to find rest.

Just like God created the heavens and earth and then rested on the seventh day, we are instructed in scripture to do the same.

So, let’s read these powerful scriptures about a day of rest.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates

                                                Exodus 20:8-11 ESV

 


but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you.

                                                Exodus 20:10 NLT

 

The Sabbath of the land shall provide food for you, for yourself and for your male and female slaves and for your hired worker and the sojourner who lives with you, and for your cattle and for the wild animals that are in your land: all its yield shall be for food.

                                                Leviticus 25:6-7 ESV

Labor Day Scriptures from Genesis

We end our reading of Labor Day scriptures at the beginning. As we just read, in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He labored for our benefit. And then he rested as He instructed us to do in the previous verses.

So let’s find inspiration for our work in these Labor Day scriptures from Genesis.

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

                                                 Genesis 1:31

 

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

                                                 Genesis 2:15 ESV

 

By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

                                                Genesis 3:19 ESV

 

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

                                                       Genesis 2:1-3 NIV

My prayer is that these Restful Bible Verses for Labor Day have inspired you in your work. And may God bless you and give you rest during this holiday.

Have a very Happy Labor Day!

Life-Changing Bible Verses about the Seasons

Life-Changing Bible Verses about the Seasons

Do you wonder… What does the Bible say about the 4 Seasons? In this Bible Study, we’ll read Life-Changing Bible Verses about the Seasons and discover how God made the four seasons for a purpose. And how they help us navigate each season of life.

God created each season for a purpose.

In each of the four seasons, nature abounds with God’s glory. The beautiful Spring flowers lead us into the warm Summer days. Vibrant fall foliage fades into gently falling snow. These pictures of the beauty of nature remind us of God’s hand working in our lives.

Because each season represents a time in our life as well.

Spring gives us a new beginning. Summer a time to work. Fall a time to reap what we’ve worked so hard for. And Winter a time of much needed rest.

The glory of the Lord is always on display in our lives if we’ll just take a moment to look for it. So, is it any wonder that God’s Word has a lot to say to us about the Seasons?

Let’s dive in and learn the meaning of the seasons and how God meant for them to guide us through life.

Four Seasons in the Bible Meaning

The meaning of the four seasons and how they apply to our everyday lives can be summed up in this Bible verse from the book of Ecclesiastes.

I’m sure you already know this scripture. But it’s popular for a reason.

In it, we learn there is a season for everything. Both in nature and in our lives.

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

                                    Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NKJV

 

 

Understanding Seasons Biblically

God’s Word uses the seasons as a metaphor for Biblical living.

Whether it’s a beautiful tree planted by streams of water or the stars put in their place, these Bible verses teach us how to live a Christian life for God’s glory!

He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.    

                                    Psalm 1:3 NKJV

 

Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.

                                   Isaiah 43:18-19 NKJV

 

And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

                                  Daniel 12:3

 

 So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west
And His glory from the rising of the sun,
For He will come like a rushing stream
Which the wind of the Lord drives.
                                

                                   Isaiah 59:19 NASB

 

For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.

                                  Psalm 90:4

 

He who gathers in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who brings shame.

                                 Proverbs 10:5

 

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.

                                 James 5:7 ESV

 

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.        

                                 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT

 

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you.

                                 1 Thessalonians 5:1

 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  

                                 Hebrews 13:8 NLT

 


She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.

God Made the Seasons Bible Verse

Because of God’s love, He created the earth and gave it to us as a beautiful gift. This gift also includes the seasons and their unique way of giving us everything we need to survive while we’re here on earth.

Sometimes we forget about the wonder of this amazing gift of God. But these scriptures remind us why God made the seasons and how He provides for us throughout them.

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

                                  Genesis 1:14-19 NKJV

 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

                                Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV

 

You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth; you have made summer and winter.

                                Psalm 74:17 ESV

 

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation. These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground, …

                                 Genesis 2:1-5

 

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

                               James 1:17 NKJV

 

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. …

                                Genesis 1:1-5 ESV

 

 Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
     covering yourself with light as with a garment,
stretching out the heavens like a tent.
He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters;
he makes the clouds his chariot;
he rides on the wings of the wind;
he makes his messengers winds,
his ministers a flaming fire.

 He set the earth on its foundations,
so that it should never be moved.
You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.

                                       Psalm 104:1-6

 

All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

                                      John 1:3

 

He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing.

                                     Job 26:7

 

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.         

                                    Genesis 1:27 NASB

 

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

                                       Psalm 90:2

 

They and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature.

                                       Genesis 7:14

 

And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing.

                                       Ezekiel 34:26

 

He covers the heavens with clouds; he prepares rain for the earth; he makes grass grow on the hills.

                                     Psalm 147:8

 

Thus says the Lord,
Who gives the sun for a light by day,
The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night,
Who disturbs the sea,
And its waves roar
(The Lord of hosts is His name):

                                  Jeremiah 31:35 NKJV

 

Of old You laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
They will perish, but You will endure;
Yes, they will all grow old like a garment;
Like a cloak You will change them,
And they will be changed.
But You are the same,
And Your years will have no end.
The children of Your servants will continue,
And their descendants will be established before You.”

                                  Psalm 102:25-28 NKJV

Inspirational Bible Verses about Spiritual Seasons of Life

Like everything, our spiritual lives ebb and flow. An easy season of our life turns into a difficult season in the blink of an eye.

But God’ plan for us never changes. He wants to have a close relationship with us in both the good and bad times. And even though the up and downs are hard, these spiritual seasons have a way of bringing us closer to God. I’m sure that’s why He allows them.

But the following scriptures show us God’s great love and help us remember He is with us always.

 

The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood …

                                  Revelation 1:1-5 ESV

 

 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.

                                John 4:13-15

A little while back, God told me… “Do the work.”

And the funny thing is, it takes a lot of work to do the work! 😊 For us, Christians, It’s not enough to simply know the will of God. We must also do the work God has given us. That’s exactly what Jesus was talking about in this Bible Verse for Thanksgiving.

My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to accomplish His work.

                                                                           John 4:34 NASB

Jesus came to earth knowing the will of God the Father and to do the work of His kingdom. He’s our example as well as our Messiah. So, as we sit down to a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner surrounded by family and food, let’s follow His lead and accomplish the work God has given us.

The first step is to seek God’s will in your life, pray, and ask Him what He has for you to do. Then put into practice the will of God by doing the work.

Sometimes it can be hard. But the reward is great!

I’m praying for you to have a rewarding and blessed Autumn as you follow Jesus and do the work!!!

Because of His Love Psalm 91:14 Free Scripture Art

What is the meaning of Psalm 91:14?

Psalm 91:14 reminds us of God’s unending love for us. And because of His love, He promises to deliver us.

This Bible verse about God’s love for us shows His true character, fully loving and good. He is our protector who holds us close when the storms of life hit us hard.

He is our loving Father who hugs us tightly and wraps us in His love when we need comfort.

So, let’s read this great scripture together…

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

Because of our love for God, He will never let us go. God loves us and His compassions for us are never-ending.  Through all of life’s ups and downs, we can count on our faithful God! He will deliver us and never stop loving us!

Psalm 27:13 Free Printable Bible Verse Wall Art for Fall

I would have lost heart

We all have times when we want to give up. When it seems like nothing good will ever happen again. Or like all is lost no matter how hard we try to get it back. But the Lord’s goodness is always with us.

Here are some inspirational words from King David to help us face these times and not lose heart…

I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.

                                        Psalm 27:13 NKJV

The meaning of this Bible verse is clear. Just when we think we’ll never make it, God’s goodness shows up and makes a way through the hard times!

And we can remain confident in our faith in both the good and bad times because Jesus is with us every step of the way.

In the good times, He is our champion, pushing forward to bigger and better things.

In the bad times, He is our confidant and comforter, reminding us of happier memories and giving us the strength to keep going.

So, if you are experiencing a time like this verse from Psalm 27 describes, don’t despair. Look up and see the Lord’s goodness all around you. Blessings and spiritual inspiration are sure to flow!

Be reminded of the goodness of God and inspired for the spiritual road ahead.

Proverbs 14:26 Free Bible Verse Wall Art Printable

What is the meaning of Proverbs 14:26?

The book of Proverbs is often said to be an instruction manual for life. The knowledge within its pages amounts to a great deal of practical advice and old-fashioned common sense. And the meaning of this scripture from Proverbs 14 is all about the fear of the Lord and the wisdom it produces in the life of a Christian.

Fear in God

In fact, the central theme and the first bit of wisdom taught in this great book is to fear in God. That doesn’t mean to hide or tremble in fear, but rather to fully understand who God is. To be in awe of Him and His power.

To fear the Lord is a wonderful thing. Because once our eyes are opened and we understand the enormity of God, we are His children and He is our Father. With this truth, our lives will never be the same!

Strong Confidence 

Just like a father here on earth is obligated to love and protect his children, God promises His love and protection to us too.

And we can have strong confidence in this promise… Whatever may come our way, we have a safe home and a place of refuge in our Lord Jesus.

So, when life becomes too much, turn to God and find your place of refuge and strong confidence for the future ahead.

The simplest way to have strong confidence in your faith is to read God’s Word and store it in your heart. So, I’ve made this free printable for you. It’s an easy way to remember God’s promise of a place of refuge for those who fear the Lord.

Proverbs 14:26 Free Bible Verse Wall Art Printable

This Proverbs 14:26 free Printable Bible Verse Art teaches us whoever fears the Lord is wise. And it reminds us we have a place of refuge to turn to every day.

The Harvest Is Plentiful -Matthew 9:37

The Harvest is Plentiful Matthew 9:37

In Matthew 9:37, Jesus tells us the harvest is plentiful. But what does that mean? In this devotional, we’ll read the words of Jesus and discover the true meaning behind this important scripture.

What does Matthew 9:37-38 mean?

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

                                                Matthew 9:37-38 NIV

This time of year, we talk about the harvest a lot. Instead of the old-fashioned vegetable picking and gathering, it’s become a fun celebration of the fall season.

And in church, we read this Bible verse about the harvest each autumn. But do we really take the time to understand what Matthew 9:37-38 means in our lives?

Let’s look deeper into it and find the true meaning behind the message Jesus gives us in this verse.
                                                                     

The harvest is truly plentiful

The harvest represents the people in our lives God wants us to share the gospel with.

But sometimes it’s easy to think there isn’t anyone left to witness to. We surround ourselves with others who are like us and mistakenly think they are already saved.

However, when we take a closer look, we can see there are so many people in our lives who need Jesus.

They may be co-workers, friends, or even members of our own family.

In His wisdom, God has placed us where we are in life for a reason. And He put these people in our path for us to tell them the good news of salvation.

This is our mission field. And we don’t need to go to a far-off land to find it.

My pastor likes to call it “a divine appointment”. An unexpected moment to talk about our beliefs and share the love of Jesus.

Jesus called it “a harvest”. And He said there are plenty of people ready to hear the truth about Him right now.

There is always someone who needs Jesus! And if we’re willing to look around for even a minute, we’ll see the harvest is truly plentiful.

The laborers are few

The problem isn’t that there is no harvest to gather and bring into the barn.

Instead, the problem is a labor shortage on God’s farm.

With the sheer number of people who claim to be a Christian, you’d think there would be a bountiful, almost unlimited amount of laborers available to share the gospel message.

But the reality is, the workers are few because we choose for it to be that way.

We avoid the work of God’s Kingdom and abandon the mission of the harvest before it even begins.

Why? Because it’s hard work.

How will they know if we don’t tell them?

Everyone needs a Savior! But how will they know about Jesus if we don’t tell them?

How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?

                                               Romans 10:14 NKJV

For most people the idea of “witnessing” is scary.

And I agree, it can be a daunting task.

We get caught up in our head wondering… Will they think I’m crazy? Will they make fun of me? What if they ask questions? Will I be able to answer them?

Our minds are filled with doubt about our ability to be an effective witness.

But as Christians, we are commanded by Jesus to take the gospel to the people who need to hear it.

The Great Commission

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

                                              Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV

This is a command from our Lord Jesus Christ, to take the truth of His gospel to all people. Because we all need to be saved.

But it is also a promise to us. Jesus will never leave us, even when the going gets tough. He is with us when we fail and when we succeed in the mission.

So, we need to ask ourselves, are we willing to step out of our comfort zone and follow the command of Jesus? Are we willing to take hold of this great promise knowing He is with us even to the end of the age?

What if they don’t believe?

It’s hard when we feel like the person we’re witnessing to won’t believe. When that happens, Jesus says…

If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.

                                                Matthew 10:14 NIV

There have been times in my life when the person I was witnessing to would not accept Jesus.

I thought they were hard-headed and couldn’t see the plain truth in front of them. I felt discouraged and like I was not being a very good witness.

But Jesus is telling us that some will believe in Him, and others won’t.

We just need to keep telling everyone we meet about Him and then the next person, and then the next.

It’s not up to us whether they become a Christian or not. We don’t have the power to make anyone believe. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to call people to Himself. And ultimately, it’s their decision to follow Jesus or not.

But it is our job to tell them the gospel, to pray for them, and to disciple them if they decide to accept Jesus as their Savior.

Leave everything else to the Holy Spirit.

And if you witness to someone and they don’t believe, shake the dust off and keep going. There are plenty of lost souls left to harvest.

Pray to the Lord of the Harvest

We hear Matthew 9 echoed in the book of Luke.

 

Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

                                                     Luke 10:2 NKJV

In this gospel, Jesus says the harvest is great. And His message couldn’t be any clearer… Our mission field is wide open and ripe for the picking. All we need to do is pray for the Lord of the harvest to send us out as His laborers.

So, let’s pray for the Lord to send us out into the mission field He has for us and be ready to share the gospel with someone today.

The harvest is plentiful, ripe, and ready!

If you’re still worried about being a laborer on God’s farm… All you need to be an effective witness is a willing heart. God will give you the right words to speak. And He will bring to remembrance the right Bible verses at the right time.

Your mission field is right in front of you and your harvest is ripe for the picking! So, don’t be scared to share the gospel with someone. Jesus is with you.

My prayer for you today is that you will see the harvest is plentiful and be encouraged to join the mission field today.

May God bless you in your pursuit of His harvest today and always! And may you reap a great reward!

Give Thanks to the Lord -Psalm 107:1

Give Thanks to the Lord Psalm 107:1

There are many examples of thanksgiving in the Bible. And each one shows us how to give thanks to the Lord.

During this Thanksgiving holiday, we’ll gather with the people closest to us around a table of glorious, delicious food. We’ll tell stories about the past and share memories of everything that has happened in our lives this past year.

But it’s equally important to give thanks to the Lord and remember His loving kindness during this special time. God is good and He gives us so much to be thankful for.

So, in this devotion, we’ll look at some Bible verses about how to give thanks to the Lord with a grateful heart.

Let’s start with one of my favorite thanksgiving scriptures, Psalm 107:1…

What does Psalm 107:1 mean?

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

                                         Psalm 107:1 NIV

A few years ago, I was sitting in a lady’s Bible study when a young woman shared something that changed my life.

She recited a quote you’ve probably heard before…

“What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?”

I thought about this quote for several days and decided I needed to start thanking God for everything I have today.

It’s easy for me to dream about tomorrow or get caught up in all of the things I wish I had.

But God is good to me right now and I need to show my gratitude for all He does in my life every day, not just one day a year.

Because a little bit of thankfulness goes a long way.

Imagine if you did everything for someone and they never once said thank you.

It wouldn’t make for a lasting relationship. Over time you would lose interest in helping them and then you’d distance yourself from them too.

Thankfully, God isn’t like this.

And that’s what this verse from Psalm 107:1 is about.

The meaning of the phrase “his love endures forever” translates to “a loyal love”.

This is the kind of love God has for us. He is always loyal. And because He is, no matter how we act, He always loves us and promises to care for our needs.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give thanks to the Lord for His goodness and all He does for us every day.

Free Devotional 7 Simple Ways to See God's Hand in Your Life

What are we thankful for?

After pondering this quote, I began thanking God each night for the things He gives me today that I don’t want to live without tomorrow.

Here’s a list of some of the things I give thanks to the Lord for each day…

#1 Salvation

Where would I be if I didn’t have salvation in Jesus Christ?

I would be lost and condemned. So, salvation is definitely at the top of my list of things I can’t live without. And it’s the one thing I’m most grateful for.

#2 My Family

Every day I pray for God to take care of my family. I’m sure you do the same for yours too.

I always mentioned them in my prayers before and asked God to take care of their individual needs.

But now I simply say thank you to God for their presence in my life

This has made a big difference in my relationship with my family. I see them in a different light and recognize how thankful I am for each of them and the unique qualities they bring into my life.

#3 My home, food, car, clothes, etc.

Food, shelter, and water, are the necessities of life. And I certainly don’t want to live without any of them.

Especially food! Who wants to go hungry?

With the bounty of Thanksgiving, this basic of daily life may be overlooked, for so many, it’s an everyday struggle.

God has always been faithful to provide for my family. We may not be millionaires, and we may not have everything we want. But God has always made sure we have what we need. And I am very thankful for His generosity!

#4 My Country

What a privilege it is to live in a country where I am free to worship God! I am so grateful for the opportunity to live in a nation where I can express my views and practice my religion without fear.

#5 Answered Prayers

Like everyone, I ask God to do certain things for me. And then when He does them, I conveniently forget He has just answered my prayer.

So, I’ve started thanking Him in the moment for each answered prayer.

But I also want to remember in my nightly prayers, to say thank you again because I am truly grateful He has heard my cry for help and cared enough to answer.

There are usually a few other things that happen throughout the day I give thanks for. But this list represents the things I don’t want to live without the next day.

Learning to give thanks to the Lord has had a huge impact on my life and my relationship with Jesus. Because of the simple act of saying thank you, my prayer life has grown and my attitude has changed.

So, How do you give thanks to God?

In answering this question, two scriptures come to mind. In each one, we learn a different, but equally important aspect of how to give thanks to God.

In everything Give Thanks

 

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

                                    1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV

As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, we’ll talk about all of the wonderful things that have happened over the past year.

And we should be thankful for them. God has done so much for us!

But this verse is about being grateful in all things, both good and bad.

Why?

Because in Romans 8:28 we learn… all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

God has the power to turn something we see as bad into something amazing. He causes all things to come together in the end for our good.

This is the hand of God intervening in our life when we least expect it. And With His touch, and through the work of the Holy Spirit, God can bring good into what seems like a terrible situation.

So, if you’ve suffered a loss this past year, remember… in everything give thanks. And know even in the bad, God’s will in Christ Jesus brings glory and honor to Him.

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

 

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

                                                 Psalm 9:1 NIV

To truly give thanks to the Lord, it needs to come from the heart. Not just a little bit of our heart, but all it.

The lyrics of the great song Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart say…

Give thanks because He’s given
Jesus Christ, His Son…

This is the greatest gift we could ever receive. And a heart full of praise for the gift of God’s Son is the greatest gift we can give back to God for this sacrifice.

When we tell of this wonderful deed, we are giving thanks with a grateful heart just like the song and this scripture tell us to do.

What are the 3 things you are thankful for this Thanksgiving?

This November, instead of focusing on what I don’t have, I choose to focus on what God has blessed me with already.

That gratitude has changed my way of thinking and my outlook on life. God is good. His love endures forever. And learning to give thanks for His loyal, unfailing love has made me feel closer to God in so many ways.

After reading the list of things I’m thankful for, I’m sure you have some thoughts of your own. And I encourage you to write a list of at least 3 things you are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

I hope it will help you in some small way to grow your relationship with Jesus.

Bible Verses about Leaves/Autumn Leaves

The significance of leaves in the Bible can be seen in these Bible verses about autumn. The freshness of green, new growth, to the changing of their colors, all the way to faded and wilted. Each phase of the leaf’s life represents the Christian life. Are we new and green? Or brown and decayed? The choice is ours.

 

They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.

                                    Jeremiah 17:8

 

They’re—

Puffs of smoke pushed by gusts of wind;
late autumn trees stripped clean of leaf and fruit,
Doubly dead, pulled up by the roots;
wild ocean waves leaving nothing on the beach
but the foam of their shame;

                                    Jude 12-13 MSG

 

And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.

                                 Matthew 21:19 KJV

 

down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

                                   Revelation 22:2

Thankful Harvest quotes from Scripture

In Biblical times the harvest meant life. The gathering of food for an entire year after months of hard labor. It was a celebration of God’s goodness and provision.

These days, our idea of a harvest is a little different. It’s family gathering for a feast. Turkey and dressing and pumpkin pie, all laid out on the dining room table. Warm hugs and friendly conversation as we share our faith. But we still celebrate all God has done for us. His goodness and grace, and the way He provides so generously give us plenty to be thankful for.

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.

                                   Genesis 8:22

 

He who gathers in summer is a wise son;
He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.

                                    Proverbs 10:5

 

Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.

                                     John 4:35

 

Those who sow in tears shall harvest with joyful shouting.
One who goes here and there weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

                                    Psalm 126:5-6

 

You have multiplied the nation
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You
According to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

                                     Isaiah 9:3

 

As you can see there are many Bible verses for Autumn. Each one is a blessing worth celebrating. As you celebrate the beauty of this season through scripture, may the love of nature and the strength of God’s hand guide you this Fall and throughout the year.

The Beauty of Autumn Leaves Galatians 6:9 Devotional

The Beauty of Autumn Leaves Galatians 6:9 Devotional

In this Galatians 6:9 devotional we’ll see the beauty of autumn leaves and learn how to not grow weary in doing good.

It seems like a tall order to accomplish in one short Bible study, but with God’s help, we’ll see how in due season to reap the benefits of a life well-lived if we do not lose heart.

Autumn is a time of great change in nature. The carefree days of Summer have passed, and we look forward to a new season.

Here in the Ozark Mountains, the temperature is falling and soon the Master’s paintbrush will turn the leaves from green to brilliant red, orange and yellow. The colors are so vibrant and there’s a sense of excitement for the change ahead.

Fall is so beautiful! And since moving to Arkansas, Fall has quickly become my favorite season.

The color of the pretty fall leaves fills my heart with wonder as I breathe in the crisp autumn air. I revel in this brief moment of beauty God gives to us each year.

But Autumn is also a time for new obligations. The beginning of school for the kids, Sunday school and Bible study classes, football practice, the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and so much more.

We keep the wheels turning by taking care of our families, volunteering at church, and witnessing to those around us who are not saved.

And as much as we love doing all of it, these new commitments can leave us feeling stressed out and just plain tired. Sometimes, it can be a little bit overwhelming.

So, during this busy time of year, let’s seek a little inspiration from the words of Paul to the Galatians in this verse…

And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

                                                       Galatians 6:9 NKJV

What is the meaning of Galatians 6:9? And how can we not become weary while doing good?

 

As women of faith, we endeavor to do what is right in God’s eyes. We want to do it all and be everything to everyone.

But the challenge for us is, to do good and not grow weary when life becomes hectic, or we start to feel like we’re being pulled in a lot of different directions.

In these times, the truth of this Bible verse becomes a source of encouragement for us. Because this one scripture has so much to say about how to get through these busy moments we all experience.

So, let’s take a closer look at each part of Galatians 6:9.

Let us not grow weary…

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed, discouraged, tired, and downright unappreciated.

In these moments, it’s easy to think no one sees the good work we do.

But God does see the effort we put in and He doesn’t want us to give up and throw in the towel.

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

                                                   1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV

In doing good…

It’s true that good works do not save anyone. It is only the grace of God through faith in His Son, Jesus that offers salvation.

However, this verse and many others are quick to point out, we should want to do good and show the love of Christ through our actions if we are saved.

This begins with those closest to us. Then to other believers. Lastly, and maybe more importantly, to the ones God sends our way to be a witness to.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

                                                     Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV

 

In due season we shall reap…

Sometimes it feels like our “due season” is just out of reach or will never come.

But the seeds we sow today will determine what we reap in the future.

God has a plan, and He promises to reward us for all that we do in His name. His timing is different than our own. And with patience and perseverance, if we keep looking forward, our season to reap our reward will come.

 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.

                                                       James 5:7-8

Do not lose heart…

We may feel like we’re drowning in a sea of endless things to do. And we may feel down and out, but all is not lost.

God is on our side and ready to offer our hearts the encouraging boost we need for the voyage ahead.

But we must be willing to take hold of that encouragement and use it in a way that will cause us to not lose heart.

How do you not lose heart?

By fixing our eyes on Jesus. In the light of His glory, the struggles we face dim as we are renewed and restored each day.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

                                                      2 Corinthians 4:16-18

The beauty of autumn is undeniable.

And I hope this Galatians 6:9 devotional reminds you… just as God creates the beauty of the autumn leaves, He also wants to create beauty in our lives.

He understands we’re only human. And He knows we become tired and discouraged from time to time.

So, when we’re down, He wants to encourage us to forge ahead and to not grow weary in doing good. When we do, He promises we will reap the reward of a life well-lived.

During this time of great change in nature, I pray you will revel in the beauty God has put in your life today and the beauty in Autumn leaves!
