In this new year we expect four seasons – winter, spring, summer and autumn. Just like the four seasons in the year, God has ordained seasons and cycles in our lives. Sometimes, when our dreams arenâ€™t coming to pass on our timetable, we can be tempted to get frustrated. We have to be careful not to allow our attitude to keep us from moving forward. Let God determine your season – He wonâ€™t give you more than you can bear, trust Him, He will get you through.
Just like in a 12 month cycle, In Godâ€™s kingdom, every season is not harvest. There are ploughing seasons, planting seasons and watering seasons. Sure, we would love for every season to be a time of increase; but without the other seasons, we wouldnâ€™t be prepared. Seasons come to prepare for harvest and increase. Itâ€™s during the ploughing season that God brings issues to light that we need to deal with. Heâ€™s getting us prepared for success.
Today, if youâ€™re not making as much progress as you would like, the key is not to lose any ground. Donâ€™t go backwards. Hold your position by keeping an attitude of faith and expectancy, even when itâ€™s hard. Keep pushing and stay positive by speaking Godâ€™s Word daily. This month keep pressing through winter, spring is on the way. Hold on during the uncertainty of spring, because the consistency of summer is coming, just before your harvest or increase in every area of life!
â€œFor everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.â€(Ecclesiastes 3:1, NLT)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your faithfulness in all seasons of my life. Father, I trust that my time is coming, and I choose to remain faithful to You as I await my harvest and increase. God, I submit my ways to You, and trust that You have the best plan for my life, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
