Surrendering to God’s Season When Life Turns Upside Down
Discerning what season you, your family, your ministry, and the world are in right now may be our most important leadership task. Discerning properly our season will determine our priorities, decisions, and gait- for ourselves and our units. Flunking to discern properly will result in all kinds of internal pang and squandered vitality. That is the theme of this podcast.
Scripture schools us there is a time or season for everything under heaven: To everything there is a season, a experience for every purpose under heaven…a time to plant and a time to uproot…a time to weep and a time to laugh … a time to be silent and a time to speak”( Eccl. 3:1- 8).
I expound on the seasons of Fall( modulations ), Winter( fatality ), Spring( fruitfulness ), and Summer( abundance ), examining, in particular, the winter season in which we now find ourselves. This winter season, which is running longer and more deep than any of us expected, is changing the world and faith ministry as we know it. And, I am convinced is meant to transform us as well- both personally and as a church.
The adversity and disruption to our programmes of this wintertime season ends any illusion that we were ever in control. Yet, it also offers us a moment to reorient the path we live and follow Jesus. How? By surrendering.
Among David’s fighting boys were the “men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do”( 1 Chronicles 12:32 ). May God reach you and I like them!
Listen to this very important podcast.
Blessings to you as you listen.
