Changing Seasons

Seasons change in the natural every 3 months. We see winter turn to spring, spring into summer, and summer into fall; there is a time for seasons. The plants have times of fruit bearing and a time for leaves to fall. Just as in the natural, there are seasons in the spiritual. We all have seasons where we are to bear fruit, and seasons where we seasons where we are sowing seeds. We are in a season now of shaking and changing seasons.


What will it take, though, for us to leave the season and bear fruit if asked? In Matthew21, Jesus goes to a fig tree that is out of season and says to the tree, “may you never bear fruit again.” The tree was asked to bear fruit out of season, to change seasons, and it did not and it was rebuked. The tree was cursed because it chose to stay tied to a season even in the face of eternity. If we have the faith, we can command the seasons to change, and mountains to move, we just have to be willing when we are asked. 


3 ways to stay strong in faith during changing seasons? 


Pray

When we don’t know what to do or say, we have a help. Holy Spirit is where our help comes from and we can take our petitions to Him. In Romans 8:26 it says, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” We can use our prayer language to communicate with God, even when we don’t know what to say. Prayer every day will keep you closer to God, so you can stay strong in your faith.


Rely on the Lord

David is known as a man of God. The shepherd boy who became a king had favour, but he also had faith. In Psalms 18:2 David writes, “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” God is our refuge and provider. We lean on Him by giving Him our issues and struggles. He is where our help comes from. 


Stay in Gratitude

If we can stay in a position of joy, then we can face many things. How do we keep that focus on the good things? We stay in a posture of gratitude. In 1 The 5:18 it reads, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” We can use thanksgiving to keep our focus on God, and keep strong in our faith. 

Jesus replied to His disciples, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. We can move mountains with our faith, if we are willing and able to live outside of the changing seasons, and answer the call when it comes. “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
