Knowing The Seasons

In the natural, we have seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) which is defined as a period of the year set off as by special activity. Such as Valentine’s Day, Easter and Christmas.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 Let's us know that everything has a time. vs 1-2 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;”


Even as servants of the Lord, we must know what time it is as it relates to what God has called and pre-ordained for us to do. Not everyone was placed here to do everything. There are those who have and/or are trying while burning the candle at both ends.


Paul explains to us in I Corinthians 3:5-10 that even he had a job to do at a set time. He PLANTED while Apollos WATERED. Paul didn’t try to pull rank by planting and watering. 
“Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.” (vs 5-7 (NKJV))

The bottom line is that it is not about you or me. It's all about God! So stay in your lane and be the best you that God has called and created you to be. NO MATTER WHAT! God has the final say. Amen!

HALLELUJAH! God is so AWESOME! It is all about HIM!
