“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity”, King Solomon writes. Does this means that we will all eventually experience every season or are our seasons preordained by God?
Are delays godly? Is God assuring we enter in at the right time or are delays demonic interference?
Should I embrace seasons of inactivity? Or should I fight for what God promised?
The bible promises my gift will open doors for me, but should I knock? How do I make my gift known?
Can you delay God’s promises? Can you step out in faith because you thought you heard God and now are waiting for Him to rescue you and bring you back to shore.
I don’t have the answers to these questions. I’m not even sure they are the right questions to ask. But I do know this:
God’s timing is not our timing and he can redeem any delays caused by the enemy.
Whatever season I find myself, I am called to rejoice, be content, and produce fruit.
All of His promises are yes and Amen. His word is true and He will give me wisdom when I should pursue or when I should wait and be pursued.
When you earnestly desire to hear God’s voice, God will find you. He has the best GPS. If you make a wrong turn, he will recalculate your path and put you back on track.
So in all seasons, rest, knowing God’s plans and purposes will not be thwarted.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
