To everything there is a season. . . ” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) A season is defined as a period or a space of time. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake of judging a lifetime by the season they are in. They allow the present season of their lives to determine their lifetime. However, those who know how to take advantage of the seasons of their lives and use these periods of time well, will activate the fulfillment of God’s plan for their lives. I like to refer to these successful people as season system sensitive.
Galatians 6:7 reads, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” But, it is also important that we understand our season of sowing is designed to cover a specific period of reaping. Whenever we miss an opportunity to sow, we leave void (empty, unprotected) a season of reaping. We wonder why we are lonely and don’t have any friends, but when we were in the season when we should have been sowing friendliness we chose not to be friendly. We failed to sow properly and left the season to reap friendship empty.
It is unfortunate that most people are experiencing this perpetual cycle of unprotected seasons. I am at the point where I have literally forced bad seasons not to come up, or if they do, to be very short. Everyday, I am determined to protect the season I am in, because there is a season coming where I’m going to need what I have sown to come up right for me. Remember, there is also a day coming in your life that you are either going to look forward to or regret to see it come, based on the seed you have sown!
