Understanding The discipline of seasons.
Our God is transcended, He is above and beyond His creation He is interested in the interest of his people. Understanding that God is also Immanent, that He is within His creation.Ever present in His creation but He does not micro-manage creation.
Ephesians 2:13 For its God who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
@ Will. ..choices—- To help us to be willing. God cannot violate your Will.you allow your will to work with his will.
@ Actions..your strengths can only be moved by your Will.
Everything has it’s proper period and duration that it happens.
@ Time: Is the period something happens.
@ Season: suitable environment within things happen.
14 seasons. ……
The seasons determine the rightness of purpose and actions.
The seasons demand your actions.
Actions become purposeful when they fit into the logic of a season.
Has made everything beautiful in its times. Timing is in things, not God.
God programmed timing in the things.E.g., seeds when we plant.The beauty of a purpose is only seen in its maturation.e.g baby
Impatience brings abortion of something.Before the time it’s not beautiful. Patience is required. Just wait. A lot of things will by themselves mature because timing is in things.
The greatest issue is when someone says am waiting for God’s timings. Whatever God intended for me was not altered. Says yes
God’s plans are eternal.I will prosper you. Therefore you kick a process into action, therefore,
Timing doesn’t entirely depend on God. He creates a season, but we must sense the timing. God controls the seasons we control the timing when we allow our Will to connect with the purpose of God.
Be right with the timing it’s related to our actions.
When is the right time?
Haggai 1:4 God plans the seasons but gives us the timing.
Requirements for Determining timing:
1. Conditions that makes it suitable for things to be done.Seasons declare themselves before they happen.
2: Advanced preparation. ..being fully prepared for something. Eventually, an opportunity must meet with preparation. Obama said the timing has come to be president. He was ready. Being right on time it feels good. Getting the timing right feels great.
3: Accessible opportunities. ..doors open.
4: Audacious faith…strong faith Jesus walking on water and Peter seize the moment.stepping out maybe scary.
Indicators of purpose
1.What did God take you out of? …its an indication of what he will use you. Monitor your life what story is.
2.How far have I come with God.are you still a baby are you still a receiver of help or a giver of help.Track your growth
3.what things move me deeply now. Has the music changed then change the dance?
4.What are the current doors that God is opening for me? Doors are for exit and others for entrance. God does not leave open doors only other are shut. More shut doors than open doors.
