Glory Seed Devotionals,
2015: Year of Promise
God blesses those people who refuse evil advice and won’t follow sinners or join in sneering at God. Instead, the Law of the LORD makes them happy, and they think about it day and night. They are like trees growing beside a stream, trees that produce fruit in season and always have leaves. Those people succeed in everything they do. (Psalms 1:1-3 CEV, emphasis mine)
What “life season” are you in?
Like nature life has its seasons. Fall is a time of decline. Winter is a time of preparation. Spring is a time of blessing. Summer is a time of rest. Yet unlike nature the seasons of life do not last for a specified period of time. And believe it or not for those of us who have a relationship with Jesus each life season is a time of blessing.
When we find ourselves in a time of difficulties (fall). The Lord prepares us to receive a blessing (winter). Once we’re prepared to receive the blessing the LORD gives us the blessing (spring). Once the blessing is received we begin a time of resting from the difficulty (summer) until the cycle of life begins again.
However in spite of the 4 life seasons author Rebecca Van Noord adds, “In this life, we’ll go through dark times and struggles that may never end. We may even feel forgotten. But despite what we think or feel, we can’t abandon what we know to be true of God.” What is true of God? GOD’S PRESENCE IS THE GREATEST BLESSING. And where God is present there is not only blessings but also an abundancy of life as well.
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

The LORD gives strength to those who are weary… But those who trust the LORD will find new strength…” (Isaiah 40:29, 31 CEV)
