Leviticus 25:18-22

Lev 25:18 “Therefore you will do my prescriptions and keep my rules and perform them, and then you will stay in the land securely.
Lev 25:19 The land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and stay in it securely.
Lev 25:20 And if you say, ‘What will we eat in the seventh year, noticing we may not plant or gather in our crop?’
Lev 25:21 I will command my blessing on you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years.
Lev 25:22 When you plant in the eighth year, you will be eating some of the old crop; you will eat the old until the ninth year, when its crop arrives.

abundant grace

The entire old covenant was a lesson — a lesson in grace. This passage shows that. God promised the Israelites that if they just followed his simple instructions, and let him do what he said he would do, they would have plenty, and they could stay in the land he gave them. If they dared to trust his provision during the Sabbath year, then the leftovers from the sixth year would keep them fed until the ninth year. That is abundant grace.

LORD, thank you for your provision of abundant grace.
