I had a dear friend of mine ask me a question Saturday. He said, “What season are you in?”
I did not know how to answer that question. I said I would have to get back to him on that. I have been thinking about that a lot since Saturday. We are all in different seasons of our lives in different areas. We may be in one type of season in our marriage and a different type in our jobs. I can say for me I am in a new season with my daughter Nichole. A healthy season of healing. Some of us maybe in a new season in our life that we are afraid and don’t like. God knows what he is doing though.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 for everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. 2 A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. 3 A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. 4 A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. 5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. 6 A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. 7 A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. 8 A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.
The last thing I want to share is this. As I was going through my bible this morning and I landed in Isaiah 61. (This is while I am searching for Ecclesiastes)
Isaiah 61:6 you will be called priests of the Lord, ministers of our God. You will feed on the treasures of the nations and boast in their riches. 7 Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.
As I read this I knew it was a word from the Lord, because I started to weep. I have really been feeling as of late that 2013 will be my best year yet. I feel that this word is saying get ready. I am going to double your business. No more shame and dishonor from the temptations of pornography, I have retired from that area of my life. I am a warrior priest and the priest of my home. I feel that in 2013 there will be more men and women and children to minister too ….. more opportunity as I stay retired.
You cannot give away what you don’t have!
