Don’t Waste Your Season

with 6 comments

It’s A Season!

Each Season Has It’s Purpose, Don’t Waste It!

Somehow the word ‘Season’ sometimes seems to us that it is a world without end!

But, it doesn’t snow all year long in my town. Neither does it rain all year long in your town.

  • Farmers don’t plow all year long.
  • Farmers don’t plant all year long.
  • Farmers don’t irrigate all year long.
  • Farmers don’t harvest all year long.
  • Farmers understand that ‘different’ things happen in ‘different’ Seasons.

We commonly hear and use phrases like: Spring Time, Summer Time, The Fall, and Winter Time.

(Then there’s even the Rainy Season and the Dry Season just to complicate things.)

Every nation in the world understands the concept of those Seasons.

We live by them. We dress accordingly. We adapt to them. We understand that this Season will soon change. It’s just a Season. We may wish that Summer would last longer, or that Spring time would never end. But all Seasons come to an end.

Seasons come and Seasons go.

Seasons are even shown in animals. Horses, dogs, and cows, to name a few, grow a ‘Winter Coat.” They adapt for the Season. Isn’t it strange how we humans struggle with adaptation?

Caterpillars look lowly and without beauty or distinction, but don’t let that fool you. It’s just a Season. Soon that Season of their life will pass and they will become a Beautiful Butterfly that turns every child’s head and causes them to marvel.

We understand that the Seasons of our Natural Environment that are controlled by the moon.

  • Psa. 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons:

We must have an understanding too, that the Seasons in our Spiritual Life are controlled by the Son.

May it bring comfort to those in pain to understand that it’s a Season. Is it a Painful Season? Yes, most assuredly, but a Season nevertheless.

Weeping endures for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. The Weeping Season concluded with a Season of Joy. May your Weeping Season end the same!

  • Psa. 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

Thou hast turned for me!! God controls your Seasons! He knows where you are at and what you are going through. Have confidence in His great ability!

There Are Seasons Of Sickness. There Are Seasons Of Healing.

  • Luke 5:17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

There Are Seasons Of Opportunity

  • John 5:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

May this be your Season to be Healed!

May this be your Season to be Blessed!

May this be your Season to be Delivered!

May this be your Season for Revival!

May this be your Season of Financial Blessings!

May this be your Season of Spiritual Growth!

May this be your Season of Victory!

There Are Seasons of Loneliness

When Paul was on trial, no one came to support him.

  • 2Tim. 4:16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.

But God came through and brought him a Season of Comfort during his trial.

  • 2Tim. 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
  • 2Tim. 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Don’t Fail To Make The Most Of Your Season!

  • 2Kings 13:18 And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed.
  • 2Kings 13:19 And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.

The King of Israel only made a half-hearted attempt. He never took full advantage of his Season. He learned that God does not force blessing or victory on you. You must recognize your Season!

Noah’s Day had their Season!

Ninevah had a Season!

America has had it’s Season!

Israel will be trodden down until the ‘Season’ of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

  • Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

This is YOUR Hour!

This is YOUR Season!

Don’t Waste YOUR Season!

  2. I can’t believe that you wrote this at this time. Our choir is learning it. I’ll sing this for your altar call. (LOL)
    “It’s a New Season, it’s a new day. Fresh anointing is flowing my way. It’s a season of power and prosperity. It’s a new season coming to me.
