Been saved 46 years. He has taught me about spiritual seasons. Seasons are times that require transition.
Sometimes the season require that we be still, cover ourselves with an extra layer of prayer and meditation. Thats winter. "Be still and know that I am God." You are not dead. God has not left you. It's just winter!
Sometimes the season requires some plowing and preparation of the soil for planting. That's when we spend time in self assessment. Plowing up and Pulling out weeds, turning the soil... its a time of revelation. When soil is turned it reveals what is under it. Sometimes worms of arrogance, bugs of pride, snails of self pity, and snakes of "that's how I have always done it" are revealed... That's early spring. Self Revelation can be shocking.
In summer we see the results of what we did in the spring....growth and increase. Now, the time we spent preparing is rewarding...growth, maturity..a beautiful spirit and frame of mind...fresh wind...a different attitude. Something of substance and value to share with others... another revelation. "Behold, I do a new thing, now it shall spring forth..."
The season of fall brings a slowing down. Its a period of obvious change. A spiritual chill hits the air. Not as nany preaching engagements. Not being called on as much. Now is the season of covering what you have. Its a season to preserve your gift. Do not allow your gift to be damaged by chilly words and cold remarks. Cover and wait!
I'm still learning after 46 years. I'm not slow! God keeps introducing new lessons. I'm in class everyday. Close to the blackboard. God will always have a student, ME!
See you in class!
