A Fresh Start

The rains in September remind me of God’s promise to provide his support at just the right time and season when we need it. To the Israelite’s living in a dry land, he made a promise of spring and autumn rains to make sure their crops were well nourished, for as long as they obeyed and served him. In our times he rains down blessings through the Holy Spirit who is always with us, in and out of season provided we obey and serve him. And often the change we seek in ourselves comes easier when we focus not on the change itself, but on giving ourselves to helping His people, growing His kingdom and spreading His word. Try it and see.
Our God is the God for a fresh start – not just calling us to bring our lives in line with His values but working within us to do it. Obey and serve him, then watch and see how you will change.
