3:1: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven”. We
are told in Genesis 8:22 that the seasons will always exist in creation; seed
time and harvest, winter and summer. Ecclesiastes shows us that there are
seasons to every aspect of our lives.
know that God has a plan for all of our lives (Ps 139:16). We need to hear from
God not only to discover the plan but its times and seasons. David was 37 when
he became King, many years after he was anointed for that role. Moses waited 40
years in Midian before God called him to bring Israel out of Egypt. Jesus was
30 when he started his ministry, a ministry which only lasted 3 years. Sarah
and Abraham tried to rush things and help out God’s plan and along came Ishmael
(Gen 16). Paul wanted to rush into Asia and Bithynia but the Holy Spirit had to
restrain him and then in season came God’s call to minister in Macedonia.
once heard a preacher say he had spent 40 years in ministry and 5 years before
that in preparation. In looking back, he wished he has spent 40 years in
preparation and 5 years in ministry; he felt he would have been more productive
for God with the longer preparation time.
be in a rush. Hear from God and the results will be awesome. Faith and patience
receive the promise (Heb 6:12). Be in Season today.
