At each season of every year, the Lord provides his bounty and abundance. We have cold and rain which then brings seedtime in the Spring, and harvest in the Fall.
We may have rain and cold in our own lives, too...but God uses these times to prepare us by planting the 'seed' of his Word in our hearts.
He promises to bring a bountiful harvest in our lives, and the lives of others around us. Then our hearts also will 'sing and shout for joy!'
9 - Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 - Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 - Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 - They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 - The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
