“To everything, there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1, NKJV.
My favorite season is Spring, but no matter how much I enjoy watching the flowers bloom, I can’t demand the earth to remain in this wonderful season all year long. It is inevitable that the season will change. In life, there are seasons when we must sow and seasons when we must reap a harvest. There are seasons when we must pour into others and seasons when we must sit down and be poured into. There are seasons when we must be silent, and seasons when God says, Ok, now it is time for you to speak. The important thing is for us to know what season God has us in, and we find this out by asking, “Father, what season am I in right now? Show me Lord, and help me to receive your grace to make the most of this season of my life.” When you know your season, you won’t look at what someone else is experiencing and feel down and discouraged. You’ll know your season is coming. Trust in God. The changing seasons are making you into an established woman of God whose faith is not dependent upon outward conditions but upon the Lord.
Prayer: Father, my times and seasons are in Your hands. I choose to trust in Your wisdom. I ask that you guide me through every season of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
