Cyclical/ Seasonal Time

Cyclical/ Seasonal Time

Certain things take place after regular intervals of time; the sun sets and rises in one day; spring, summer, fall, and winter repeat in one year. Many trees only bear fruit during certain times of the year. With each season comes associated expectations. They are predictable and can be maximized with proper planning. 


“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.” - Genesis 8:22(NKJV) 

Spring comes after winter. If you're tired of winter, you can't force spring to come any faster, you must wait for it. That's just the way it is and there's nothing you can do about it while the earth remains. You are also subject to cyclical time. When the sun rises, it's morning time and when the sun sets, it's evening time. The sun won't set in the morning or rise in the evening. That's how time works, and you're bound to it. Certain things don't happen unless the season is right for them to happen. 


Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. - Psalm 1:1-3(NKJV) 

You can only bring forth fruit in the season designated for that fruit. A revelation of that will change your life for the better. It will help you to curb your expectations to match the season of your life. It will save you from disappointment and frustration. It will cause you to focus your energy in the right direction. There's a season to sow and a season to reap. If you sow during your planting season you can be confident that you will reap in your harvest season. Also, depending on what you sowed you can set your expectations for the appropriate harvest at the appropriate time. 

There's a season to work and a season to rest. If you work during your resting season you won't make it through your working season. There's a season to start certain things and a season to end them. There's a season to go to certain places and a season to leave them forever. Since there's a season for everything, you're always in the season for something. What season are you in right now? Live like you’re in that season.
