The four seasons were part of God’s plan, and they are proof of His faithfulness. After The Flood, God’s covenant with Noah included this promise:

“While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
and day and night
Shall not cease”
(Genesis 8:22)

The cold and “s word” that are part of winter are proof of God’s faithfulness. (“s word” = snow)

The renewal that Spring brings to a monochromatic world also proves that God is faithful.

Summer’s long days, warm evenings are part of God’s faithfulness.

The beauty of Fall colors with cloudless blue skies as a backdrop shows us that God is faithful.

The sun came up today, because God is faithful. The stars shine at night because God is faithful.

The list is endless. From Genesis to Revelation we read of God’s faithfulness; in all seasons, He faithfully pours out His kindness, strength, provision, comfort and compassion on His people.

As we look back over our lives, let’s praise our God for His faithfulness in every season. He was faithful in the past, and we can trust Him to be faithful to the end. Worship our faithful God as you listen to Selah sing “The Faithful One”. https://youtu.be/IczlW3QlHCs

Praising God Through the Seasons

June 12, 2011

Today is my birthday. I look back at my childhood; I remember my godly parents and the loving home we were nurtured in, and I am thankful. I remember the day I said “No” to sin and “Yes” to Jesus, and started to walk with with Him. He’s faithfully led me many years, in so many different seasons; He gave me countless blessings, the greatest being Jorge, the love of my life, and three precious children. How can I thank Him enough for these, and so many more blessings?

I thought all day long about what I could write that would be really inspiring, profound and inspirational…but all I can do is copy something that was already written a few thousand years ago. The Psalmist expressed my sentiments to a “T” when he wrote: “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, O Most high; to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night.” (Psalm 92:1,2)

The Psalmist praised God through many seasons, because He is good and faithful. Take a few minutes to listen to one of my favorite songs, and let the simple words of praise be yours, too, in whatever season you are in. http://youtu.be/zeIGan5YD9Q
