“Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (KJV) To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;”
Our God is a God of seasons. He brings events to pass at his own pace and timing. His time table is totally different from ours. We as humans want everything we desire instantly. We want that job instantly, we want that new house immediately, we want that new car without waiting, we want that breakthrough instantly. The notion of waiting is strange to our fallen nature. The thought of waiting a while before getting what we desire brings anxiety and doubt in our hearts. However, we must be humble enough to trust God’s timing. We must come to an understanding that our God is a season and he brings occurrences to pass at the appointed time.
The level of your trust in God’s timing will be seen in what you do while you wait for his promise. We need to be patient to receive what God has in store for us. Doubt, fear and anxiety won’t deliver God’s promises to us. We must continually stand firm in the will of God as we wait. While we wait for his promises to become visible in our lives, our aim must be to continually live in accordance to his holy word and perfect will.
“Hebrews 10:36 (KJV) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.”
Also, our attitude must not be one of complaining and murmuring. We must continually appreciate God for what he has done in the past, thanking him in advance that he will bring to pass what we look forward to seeing him do in our lives. This creates an attitude of humility in us. We must completely depend on him as a God capable of bringing his promises to pass.
A good example of a patriarch of faith who experienced the faithfulness of the God of seasons is Abraham. At the right time (perfect timing), God gave Abraham what he desired – a son. God waited till all human efforts had failed. He waited till the body system of Abraham and Sarah had no capacity to bring forth an offspring, then he showed his mightiness. Often times, your season of remembrance by God will come when all your human efforts have failed so that all glory may be to his name. What a great God!
Often times, your season of remembrance by God will come when all your human efforts have failed so that all glory may be to his name
Now circling back to our Bible text,
“Ecclesiastes 3:1: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”
To fully enjoy the abundance of God, we must understand that it will only come in God’s own season. There is a season for everything that God does and he wishes that we wait patiently for his promise. Don’t look for shortcuts, wait it out. When God brings his promise to pass, then all eyes will see and give glory to His name.
We are sure this word has blessed you. Kindly share with your family and friends. Shalom!
