Do you know what season of life you’re in? Just as there are physical seasons that we must maneuver, there are also spiritual seasons too. You may be enjoying the excitement of spring when new opportunities are beginning to sprout in your life. Perhaps you’re enduring the chill of a winter season. This can be an especially tough time because it seems as though nothing is happening in your life. Just as in the natural, you may feel like you’re frozen and that you’re going nowhere. You may feel like your career is at a standstill and that you’re frozen in a dead-end job. Perhaps you’re hoping for a relationship to develop, but again, it appears as though nothing is happening and you’re frozen in time. I believe I’ve experienced every spiritual season and can relate to you where ever you are today.
If you’re in a winter season, take heart. Though it may feel like circumstances in your life won’t soon change, in time, they will.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 talks about seasons. The Word of God tells us that to everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.
This means that just as there is a change of seasons in the natural, we can expect to experience a change in spiritual seasons too. Changing seasons are intended to grow and prepare us for the next season.
An important thing to remember about seasons is that we are not all experiencing a particular season at the same time. If you’re going through a winter season, you can expect the enemy to send you lies and try to convince you that God has forgotten you. This is a lie. Don’t fall for that trick! You are not forgotten. You may simply be in a season of preparation. During this time, you may not see or feel like God is working on your behalf, but you can rest assured that He is.
“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:”
Beloved, above all else, we must trust God and allow Him to work in and through us, no matter the season.
