Timing

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecc 3:1)

We all have desires in our hearts we would like to see fulfilled. Many of these are God given to help propel us to where we need to be, but there are multiple parts to every call that may be on our lives.

There is a time to sow where we prepare and invest time, money, and effort in getting ourselves ready and equipped. There is a time of winter where absolutely nothing seems to happen. We just have to wait in expectation of spring. Then we move into all He has for us, and we have to put aside what we will need to sow for the next season and reap the reward of our labors.

What we are and more importantly what we do has a specific timeframe. If we leave too early, we will only fail. If we discern the season, we will act appropriately. There is no point in trying to reap in winter or plant in summer.

Quick Prayer: Show me the when as well as the what. Amen.

Get It In.

“He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.” (Pro 10:5)

There is wisdom in understanding the season you are in. There is a time to reap and a time to sow; other times are winter, where nothing seems to happen and patience is required.

The responsibility we have in summer is to reap the harvest. We can be in different seasons in different areas of our lives at the same time. Discerning what season we are in is important. There is no point in sowing in winter.

There are financial harvests, spiritual harvests, and even relationship harvests. What season are you in now, and what area is ready for harvest? We have to be diligent and aware, for the season of harvest is short and temporary.

Quick Prayer: Help me to bring in the harvest. I commit to bringing it all in and using it wisely. Amen.
