Welcome to a new season my friends. A season that speaks of progress and advancement for some and waiting for others.
Throughout the summer break many people travelled in and out of the country and as a result we all don’t know who is a student going on holiday or those who are ordinary travellers. We do not know those who are running their businesses as self-employed or even employed. We do not know those who are in ministry as full time as we all meet at the airport. There seems to be movements left right and centre in summer.
Now that the summer break is over, it seems activities are winding down now, the dust is settling and we are now beginning to hear and see all around us those who we thought were students but they are not, employed but are unemployed, business owners but they are not.
It is easy to assume a person’s lifestyle by their appearance than by getting closer to know them.
The question you should ask is; in the midst of these movements, ‘what are you doing with your life?’
Do you remember that significant question?
I am not saying you have to be in education this season neither am I implying you start your own business but as time goes by, where are you in purpose?
We are all getting closer to the end of the year 2015.
If you need to study to progress in God’s purpose please do, but whatever you need to do, let it be what will make your life a progressive one.
Many often say they are ‘moving on…’ but when you really look closely they are only on a spot.
What causes a life to be on a spot? Why will a life be held on a spot (and it has nothing to do with the local church you belong to. Not necessarily)
There are many factors to this.
There is a season in God for you to be strengthened in your faith. This is when you learn the voice of God and get closer to Him before your next level of activity. For many of us we like to do things BUT God wants us to be still. Just be still in Him. Learn to wait before the good Lord.
It is time to learn obedience.
We are not obedient people. We were born with a disobedient nature. We learn obedience in things we go through in life. So time of waiting is time for obedience to settle in our spiritual gene. You cannot be a man or woman of faith without waiting and obeying.
It is time to revisit our goals and see how far we have come and see where we are going in Christ. Not everything in life should be full of activities. There are moments of ‘being’ as much as ‘doing’.
Let this season be a balanced season for you.
Whatever you need to do, do it heartily, as unto the Lord and not to men. Colossians 3:23
Also do it for your own good and the good of other… “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4
May this season be progressive and fruitful as you wait on Him.
