THE NEXT SEASON: ARE YOU READY?

Just as there are climatic seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter you encounter in life, there are divine seasons that you must encounter in life as well. God created those climatic seasons to allow the earth to replenish and renew itself. God allows you to endure seasons in life for you to be divinely replenished and renewed. In life, you encounter hardships that you cannot sometimes explain leaving you in a state of uncertainty, disappointment, hurt, and anger. In those times, it is important to draw closer to God and allow God to heal the hurt, alleviate the disappointment and anger, and clear up the uncertainty by trusting Him with your whole heart (Proverbs 3:5-6). That season of hardship will end, and the season will change. At the beginning of your new season, look to God to provide instructions for your new season. Do not allow the enemy to trick you into believing that season of hardship will never change, and the uncertainty; disappointment; hurt; and anger you are experiencing are what you will experience for the rest of your life. Your season could change in the next 24 hours because God is a God that can move suddenly (Acts 2:2). So, do not focus on when God will change your season. Focus on what God desires to do with you in this current season. What God desires from you during this current season is for you to draw close to Him. Ask God to open your eyes and your heart, so you can see what God wants you to learn about His love, so you can have a life-changing experience with Him in which you allow Him to change your heart, habits, and mind to become more like Christ (Romans 8:28-29; 12:2). I am not only referring to receiving salvation through Christ. I am referring to giving your whole heart, mind, and lifestyle to God, so He can mold you into a woman of God who is divinely suitable and Christ-like consistently.

To be ready for the next season, you must experience what God desires to do in your life right now in this season to change your heart, habits, and mind to become more like Christ consistently (Romans 8:28-29; 12:2). There is an emphasis on the word “consistently” to convey that being Christ-like has to be a way of life that is demonstrated in the way that you talk, behave, think, and believe. The next season is definitely coming, and your season will change just as summer comes after spring, fall comes after summer, and winter comes after fall. Will you be ready when God changes your season? Or, will you be in the same state as the previous season? Will you be ready when your husband calls to have a conversation with you? Will you be ready when your husband comes home? Will your husband still see a bad-tempered, quarrelsome woman? Will your husband see an unsubmissive, untrustworthy, uncaring, self-centered woman? Will your husband see an unkempt, untidy, disorderly, unattractive woman? Will your husband see an unloving, mean-spirited, inconsistent woman? Or, will your husband see a wife and helpmeet who is patient, kind, not envious, not boastful, not prideful, does not dishonor others, is not self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, and loves without failing (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)? Who will your husband consistently encounter in the next season of your life? The work that you do on your character, your heart, your mind, and your behavior in this season as you encounter God to become more like Christ can produce a 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 wife and helpmeet. Be about your Father’s business (Luke 2:49) in this current season becoming more like Christ to prepare for the next season in your life!
