Seasons Of Life

Main Scripture Passage: 
“Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law.” Psalm 119:18 

Related Scripture:  Ecclesiastes 3:1-9

Something we say often is “it’s a season.”  Having two young girls I say it often when experiencing a challenging week.  It’s a reminder to me to persevere and push through, that it’s not always going to be this way.  But the truth is, though it may be
a season, another season is right behind it and until the Lord brings us home, we are going to face challenge after challenge after challenge.  We say this phrase because we feel like we can’t do everything, all the time, and rightfully so!  In His infinite wisdom, God created us to be finite beings, with limitations for our good.

But it is important that we don’t carry this mindset into our time with the Lord.  His Word, and its goodness, is for every season.  In fact, to continue on without it, especially during difficult seasons, can be detrimental to our growth.  We may tell ourselves that the next season, will include a margin for spiritual growth, but busyness is not the barrier of holiness.  The true barrier is not the busyness of life but in not believing that God has something for us to learn in our busyness.

We are never too busy for what we find truly valuable.  And so the question is, do we believe the Word of God to be worth our sacrifice, worth our effort?  I challenge you, starting with today, to make The Word of God a priority.  May we never allow ourselves to believe that Daily Bible study is unnecessary or unattainable.  May His Daily Bread be water to our dry and thirsty souls--in every season!
