In This Season
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (NIV®)
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die. . . .
I believe that God chooses specific persons to live during specific seasons. I believe that “in the beginning” God intended that a man named Noah would have the determination to build an ark. I believe that God knew David would be watching over his father’s sheep long before anyone imagined there would be an Israel, and that Israel would need a king. I believe that God looked across time and called our names to stand today for His purposes, and that He has given us everything we need to lead godly lives in this season. We won’t be held accountable for what we would have done had we been Noah’s neighbors or David’s advisors. Our responsibility is this season. What do we do with that? One, let’s invite people to the cross of Jesus Christ, because it represents the power of God to transform a life. Two, let’s be unrelenting, unapologetic ambassadors for Jesus, even when others are silent. There are no insignificant people in God’s plans for humanity. This is our time. Let’s not hide our reality or deny our truth. Let’s stand up for Jesus during our season in the earth.
Heavenly Father, my presence here is ordained by You, and I want to be faithful to You during all my days. Give me boldness to invite others to come to Jesus and kneel at the foot of the cross. Give me courage to speak for You, even when others remain silent. In Jesus’ name, amen.
