The Holy Bible tells us of important feasts that God commanded His people to celebrate every year.
There is the Feast of Passover commemorating God’s redemption of the Jewish people out of Egypt. The feast was fulfilled in the New Testament by Jesus Christ our Passover Lamb, slain for our sins.
There is the Feast of Pentecost (or Feast of First Fruits) which was fulfilled when the Holy Spirit descended in the upper room and 120 lives were touched.
Another feast is called the Feast of Tabernacles. This feast came at the end of the harvest time when the people brought their final harvest gifts to the temple. The Feast of Trumpets (or as it is called today Rosh Hashanah) marks the beginning of their new year and begins the celebration of final harvest.
Maybe you’ve had a bad year and tough circumstances surrounding you thus far. Perhaps you are looking forward to a good harvest in your life and a new start. I realize this is not the time of year that most people celebrate a "new year," but just consider taking this Harvest Time as a time to look forward to God’s blessings with new harvests ahead.
Even though your past year thus far may have been a difficult one, just resolve to rejoice in whatever lies ahead and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God has a plan and purpose for you. He is caring and watching over every single minute of your life. He may seem far away, but He is as close as your very breath. Determine that you will walk in blessings. Smile at your enemies, rejoice in the Lord for all He has done and will do for you in the future, and give praise to your Heavenly Father for His promises that are new every morning.
Enjoy your Fall and all the beauty we are blessed to experience.
