Fall: Remembering God's Provisions

Fall: Remembering God's Provisions

Even though we're excitedly peering ahead to the winter holidays, and it might even feel a little winter-like where you live (Or is that just me? Anyone else already seen snow?), we are firmly in the swing of fall. Crisp temperatures, colorful leaves, and arguably the best food all happen in this season. 

In GraceLaced, I wrote about fall like this:

"Leaves turn, and the last of summer's bounty is gathered. Fall finds us grateful, hopeful, and wonderfully poured out. Just as fields slow down and quiet themselves, so we embrace Fall's changes, knowing Who supplies all things when the blooming season comes to an end. When one chapter closes and another is still not ours, the beauty we get to experience is seeing how the Father provides in the now and not yet."

Fall is the season (of the year and of life) that we remember God's provision and rejoice in it! 

When one chapter closes and another is still not ours, the beauty we get to experience is seeing how the Father provides in the now and not yet.

Here are a few provisions to meditate on and rejoice in this season:

 

God provides for us. 

Colossians 1:17
Before All Things

The Spirit intercedes for us.

Matthew 6:9-13
The Lord's Prayer

Jesus carries our burdens.

Genesis 18:14a
Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord

God lights our path.

Psalm 119:105
Light for My Path

Jesus is our peace.

Numbers 6:24-25
Benediction

God leads us.


Savior Like a Shepherd

God gives us purpose.

Psalm 16:11
Fullness of Joy

God gives us assurance.

 
Philippians 1:6
He Who Began a Good Work

Jesus empowers us.

John 15:5
Apart From Me

God is with us.

Joshua 1:9
Do Not Be Afraid

Jesus has set us free.

Galatians 5:1
Set Us Free

He will fight for you.

Exodus 14:14
He Will Fight for You

 

Join me in leaning into remembering God's bountiful provision for us in Christ this fall!

Because of grace,
