Summer is now over and officially autumn ushered in. Here in the UK autumn started today 22nd September and ends on 21st December 2021. There are four seasons in a year. Autumn – Winter – Spring – Summer.
Every season comes with its weather. spring is when thing begin to spring up. New flowers, plants green leaves etc….Autumn – when leaves begin to change colour and fall and so forth and so on.
This means we change the clothes we wear to make sure we are not cold during winter and not too hot during summer. So is our journey and lives. Other interesting facts about this Autumn are: 1. Trees prepare for winter 2. The chemistry of colour and 3. The days get shorter.
WHAT SEASON ARE YOU RIGHT NOW IN YOUR LIFE?
Here in the UK beginning of Autumn, September to be specific is a new academic year. Some children start school for the first Tim – reception. some secondary school, others sixth form, university and other move to a new year group.
Time is in God’s hands and HE is with us in every season. So what is God saying to you at this time? The Bible says….the sons of Isacchar knew the time. They had analysed their times and had perceived correctly what those times were all about. They knew what to do because they understood what was happening. We often get frustrated with God because things are not happening in our timeline. We think that we know better than He and get impatient. This leads to depression and anxiety. But God is perfectly in control of what is happening – including the timing of our seasons in life.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
David also says in Psalm 31:15-16 “My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. 16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.”
There is a time to plough and a time to sow. A time to wait and a time to harvest. Know what God is saying in each season – trust Him and rest in His word. Do not get yourself frustrated and try to move when it is time to rest and wait. Don’t wait when it is time to get busy. Seek the Lord if you haven’t done so and hear what He is saying to you in this season. The Lord will make all things beautiful in His time.
