Fall Brings God’s Brilliant Change by Karen Pourbabaee
“But his delight is in the law of the Lord…And he will be like a tree firmly planted…” Psalm 1:2-3
I heard the first splashes of fall shouting along the roadside on a fall afternoon drive. Amongst the emerald, olive, and forest greens, orange and crimson were making their debut. I rolled down the windows a bit and inhaled the crisp autumn breezes. Change was in the air. It was showcased in nature all around me! My spirit was alive with the wonders of God’s creation as He painted a beautiful picture lesson for me about change and His faithfulness to each of us. The trees personified the inevitable divine transformation of our lives as we submit them to God’s love and care.
Just as the trees change with brilliance in the fall, God will never leave us unchanged. We are like those trees in the fall---destined for change! When we delight in the Lord, Psalm 1 states we “…will be like a tree firmly planted…” In due season we can count on the Lord’s brilliant change in our lives. With God, there is always a “before” and “after”.
Fall’s array of new colors always brings a smile to my face, for the changing trees around me, once again confirm God’s faithfulness.
I trust You in the coming changes, in the next season of my life. Because of Your faithfulness, may my yielded life become a brilliant display of Your glory! Amen.
