“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.
