This month I had planned to have a very significant event in my life (I’ll maybe write about it when it happens). I postponed it due to the restrictions that had been made, making it difficult to move from one county to another. Looking back am not sure I really prayed about it, or I just moved based on my own reasoning, and the thought of having everyone else satisfied. I am however hopeful that God will work everything for our good.
I just thought about how some of us may have missed out on our opportunities, because we did not understand the times and seasons. Some of us may have lost resources, energy, time and more because they made a move during this time, yet it was not their time to go forward. Knowing your season and the best action for that time is very important.
Exodus 14: 14-15 says, The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. The above is a key example of how we can easily be thinking that we should stop, yet it is our time to move forward. Moses was telling the Israelited to stand at the shore of the Red sea, and wait for the Lord to do a miracle. On the other hand, God expected them to continue moving forward. This is not meant to say that we should not wait, it is to remind us that there are seasons when forging forward is what is best for us.
Psalm 46:10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” This explains that there are seasons that we should wait. As stated above, there are seasons we should move forward and there are times to take a break, and wait for God to at on our behalf. There are times we just need to wait a little bit for the miracle we have been hoping for to be manifested.
With this the most important thing is to know seasons and times. I encourage us to be sensitive to the direction of the Holy spirit so that we don’t miss our blessings. This is not about what those around you are doing o thinking, because each of us is walking in their own lane. It is about knowing that we are each in our own journey, and doing our best to maximize each season.
