PASTOR BOB CAVE
My favorite time of year is upon us, Fall, that magical time when the cycle of life becomes so evident. The trees drop their leaves in a beautiful display, and they are messy too! We see the weather change and we start to bundle. I have to wear a hoodie with my shorts... big change! The farmers always stopped and looked at the bountiful harvest at the end of the long summer and gave thanks to God for helping them.
We, too, need to stop and give thanks to God for all He has given us. We are blessed. Everything we want may not be in our houses, but we need to be thankful.
David said in the Psalms: "I will thank you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High"
God loves to hear us. He takes great pleasure in receiving our thanks and our love. He cares so deeply about everything that affects our lives. Talk to Him. Tell Him whatever is on your heart. He understands and wants to meet your needs. Scripture tells us in many different places, "Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today."
There is a lot going on in our world today, no doubt. There is confusion and political rhetoric that is exhausting but our God knows and sees and causes all things to work together for good according to the Scriptures so let’s be ever vigilant in our thanks and praise to God for His incredible faithfulness.
Thanksgiving to you always Father God
