We know that there is a season for everything. Ecclesiastes 3 talks about “A season for Everything”.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
Naturally we think of seasons with the changing of temperature; like spring, summer, fall & winter. For example, the growth of seeds planted to be harvested and placed on our tables to nourish our bodies. Those are probably the seasons that come to mind when we think of seasons.
So, I want to encourage you with where I believe the season is for the Church, for the children of God that are in ministry serving. I believe we are living in a season where it is critical that the Church stands up & stands out.
You might ask, what do you mean?
First of all stand FIRM in your convictions. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Hold tight to your FAITH in Christ. (Hebrews 10:23)
Hold on to the Freedom that Christ delivered you too. (Galatians 5:1)
Hold on to every promise that Christ has given you. (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Hold on to the calling that Christ has made you for. (2 Timothy 1:9)
Hold on to the family in Christ that God has blessed you with. (Hebrews 10:25)
Hold on to the salvation that Jesus gave His life for. (John 10:28-30)
Yes we are living in uncertain times, but….to God these times are not uncertain. Most importantly, The Lord knew that these days would come. He knew when you would be born and when He would call you to ministry. HE created YOU for this time.
During the uncertain season of life that we are living in, it is time to press forward and stay grounded in our faith. We must have tenacity to persevere in our calling that God created us for.
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. 2 Timothy 1:9
Don’t for one second question if you are supposed to be serving during these times, NO that is not the answer. What is the answer is to pray and ask God for the wisdom, courage & tenacity to move in the direction that will honor Him.
To everything there is a season.
I know that we would rather be serving Christ in days that are easier. But that is not the time YOU were created for!
YOU my friend were created for such a time as this! So lift your head and trust your creator with each season from this day on.
Friend, God will give you the wisdom & courage to continue serving. Trust me I’ve been in one of those shipwreck seasons and the Lord has been so faithful. He has to allow shipwrecked seasons in our life in order to see if we are fully surrendered to serve Him.
In conclusion, I pray for you sweet friend that you will find encouragement knowing that Christ created you for such a time as this!
