Summary: Sowing and Reaping, Everlasting Benefits, Walking in your Season, Baptized in the Holy Ghost
On occasions life’s events have interruptions which can change our daily rhythm into a new tempo. Think about a phone call in the middle of the night places us in a sense of urgency or even a unexpected illness, death or trouble can all serve as a change of seasons or even a change of pace. Just as well as a promotion, birthday, marriage, reunion can also affect our rhythm and tempo in our lives. Nevertheless of the changes good or bad we have to realize that throughout the Word of God the people of God faced changes throughout their journey but they never let go of their belief in God. For instance they face captivity, slavery, wondering in the wilderness and loss of homeland. Yet understand that in the book of Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. God has a purpose and a plan for everyone therefore we are walking in our SEASON. Let look at in a different way year after year we go through seasons changing and in those changes we have notice that sometime we cannot tell the Winter from the Spring nor the Summer from the Fall. There are times we the meteorologist will forecast that we will have rain but end up with snow or a hot sunny day. In actions like these God is showing us that he is still in control of the changing of the seasons but it is up to each us to allow him full control of our lives. It is clear that in order to reap everlasting life there are some requirements that we as believers are obligated to fulfill. For we have to understand that our existence of life is between birth and death. Now in this particular scripture it is clear that Paul is warning us not to compare ourselves one to another. It is important that we be concern to fulfilling unto the plan that God has intended for each of us. Nevertheless we must get the full picture of the Seasons that God has ordered for his children. Furthermore in James 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. What this verse is saying regarding walking into your season is that we have to posse PEACE within our hearts and minds and understand that with God on our side that nothing can waiver us from his ultimate plan. As Paul stated in Galatians 5:16 I say then: walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Which means that as we travel this life journey and our seasons are going to change but we have to hold tight to the Spirit of God within us; it is in that very Spirit that we are to walk in and be led by is when we are overcomers in Christ Jesus.
