Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NLT) A Time for Everything
Seasons come and go; they have a beginning and an end. We are finishing up summer, which is the time that what we planted is blossoming and we're going into fall, which is the time we harvest the fruit from our hard work. The farmer coordinates his activities by seasons because he knows it will produce the most fruit in it's season. Just like the seasons of the year, our faith has seasons. Do you know your seasons or what season you are in?
One of the greatest tragedies for Believers is we do not recognize the season they are in. Spiritual seasons are not spiritual conditions nor a way of measuring Godliness. Jesus used the parable of the fig tree (Matt 24:29-31) to illustrate that we need to be aware of our spiritual surroundings and seasons to bear fruit in our due season. God ordains spiritual seasons to provide the greatest spiritual fruit bearing and the greatest spiritual growth. God's seasonal plan includes periods of growth and periods of rest.
Recognizing the season you're in and responding appropriately to that season is the best way to insure continued spiritual growth and a life that bears Godly fruit. It's beneficial to learn to be comfortable with the season that God has ordained for you and allow God to move you from season to season. There are times of reflection, there are periods of vision, there are times when the when we will grieve and mourn and a time of revival. Me and my husband have greatly benefited from learning and knowing our spiritual times and the seasons - it has produced some good fruit. Now we know how to dress for the weather and be prepared for the storms and systems of depression.
I encourage you to allow our Father to minister to you according to the current season not according to the last or next season. And as transition into the different seasons it is essential for us to be in touch with God. Doing this maximizes the spiritual growth and the production of spiritual fruit. We must be sensitive to the season we're in and develop our worship accordingly and remember that God's grace, favor, anointing, revelation Word are in each of our spiritual seasons.
