We must embrace the different seasons in our life knowing fully well it’s just a season. I’ve come to trust that every season of life comes with its own valuable lessons that can last you for a lifetime. The ‘Quitting Season’ is a season that threatens to destroy the harvest of families and hardworking citizens … but it’s part of the circle of life that must be handled with WISDOM. This season looks for loopholes and imperfections in our lives making high bids to distract us from our task at hand.
It’s the kind of season that fine tunes our shortcomings causing us to become frustrated with ourselves and stop fighting. Be wise! Don ‘t let how you feel make you forget what God has said.
Good or bad — seasons are just for a season. The GOD we serve is never perturbed by the seasons He allows to come to us because He has given us everything we need to go through the season. Jabez had a season of pain and he prayed –- “Oh, that you would bless me indeed, and ENLARGE my territory, that YOUR hand would be with me, and that YOU would keep me from evil, that I may NOT CAUSE PAIN.” SO, GOD GRANTED him what he requested.”
Seasons shift when we pray. God knows how we are framed and He’s remembers we are dust. That is why we do not lose heart in a season — the skill of handling a season maybe intimidating most of the times but our inner self is daily growing stronger as we learn valuable lessons to pass on to others.
Answers to prayers doesn’t come about by doing drive-thru prayers because we are in a hurry. It requires sweat, tears, and being persistent. Don’t expect God to turn up if we aren’t willing to put in the time for ourselves.
There was a judge who neither feared God nor respected men. There was also a widow who wanted justice against her adversary. The judge refused to listen to the widow’s plight but the woman kept annoying the judge with her persistent cry. Eventually the judge out of frustration granted the widow justice. The judge had no other option to silence the widow and the widow had no other option than to be persistent.
If the unjust judge could be moved by a persisting widow’s plea — certainly God will give us justice when we cry out to Him day and night. The God we serve is looking for faith on the earth … He’s ready to answer when we will not give up.
We all experience dry seasons in our lives, they make us want to quit and count our losses, but God is looking for people with faith to believe that persistent prayers CAN and WILL abort Satan’s plots to destroy our harvest.
IN CHRIST THERE’S NEVER A CRISIS. When you know the power of PERSISTENT prayers … God always grants us our request.
