He made everything beautiful in its' own time! Have you ever wanted some strawberries so bad but they were out of season and you could not find them hardly anywhere? Then one day you are shopping and wow, someone has strawberries!! You buy them with high hopes of concealing the matter of your taste buds, and just when you bite into them they are as sour as a lemon grown in season! What in the world? It is because they were grown out of season. Someone thought to create a green house or somewhere in doors where they could grow these strawberries even though it was winter time. The green house isn't necessarily green, but the name refers to the plants on the inside of it! This is one of the reasons they say it is absolutely AWESOME to have a green house...
Consistent Gardening: When you have a greenhouse, you can evade and ignore all weather conditions and season changes throughout the year. Excessive rains, extreme temperatures, or long droughts will not cause any serious problems for the plants that you grow in your greenhouse. You acquire the flexibility you need to go ahead with any form of gardening.
*Sometimes consistency looks good but it is more beneficial in season. The timing of the Lord.
Even words_ "A few words spoken in season is better than a multitude of words that are spoken out of season."
The bible says...
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."
To the simple this really does seem like a loaded cannon of foolery, but to the believer it is understanding the prayer language as well as seeing the art of war. If we fought every single day, imagine how tired we would physically be! Even the bible states that,
"Jesus was led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt  the Lord thy God.8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him."
The enemy has vigorous times of testing you! When those times are over for that season you're then allowed to be "ministered to." It does not say that we wont face other things but that THAT particular thing we won't face for a time.
The Time Of Ministering__
Do you agree that we go through many things over the coarse of a year? YES we do! Much of it being in the carnal realm, but we fight spiritual battles EVERYDAY! While we most often times take a beautiful seven day vacation with no worries of work or familiar people, when do we commit to Father's leading?
"He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
Did you know that this passage is referring to us as an animal as well as a human? In the earth realm, animals follow the one they love? No! Animals follow the one that feed them, and they grow to love the individual that is giving them nourishment for the body. They will follow this person to the end of the world because their is love in substance.
*Substance__"the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence."
We are that "real physical matter" supposedly hoping for more love, temperance, meekness, self control ect... that cannot be seen physically_ but when we allow Jesus to come into our hearts these things are then manifested so that others may see it as tangible! They are actually able to physically touch kindness, meekness, and long suffering when they touch you or come into your presence!
What if when we took vacations we allowed the Lord to lead us on where to go? What great dynamic for the Lord to be able to restore us while we are taking time off from the world! Many times we vacate for the fun and excitement but do we give ourselves that time to heal?
*Heal_"cause to become sound or healthy again"
If we do not give time to become sound and healthy again we become like those strawberries that are grown out of season. They are sour! Strawberries are known for their sweetness in taste. Have we allowed the angels to minister to us making us sweet again? After preaching, teaching, reaching, do you allow that angel to minister to you? Just like the voice of the Lord, the angles come in these settings...
*_Real worship music playing low in the background of a quiet room
_Laying prostrate on the floor and mediating of the goodness of the Lord
_Listening in a learning environment (This is why the Lord will lead many preachers to PREACH but to teach as well! During teaching restoration can also be found)
_While sitting in the quiet in the state of prayer
(Many other ways)
Have you ever felt an angel just touch you in the lock of your shoulder? Huuummmm... Did you know that angels come in the form of people as well? It sounds odd but this is true! Did Jesus not walk among them having to keep the pharisees from killing Him to early? You never know who is looking back at you! This is why we should treat our neighbors the way we want to be treated. We are all one body but many members! Angels of the Lord can minister to us in an abundance of ways, we just have to make sure we are open to receive. Father put the seasons in place for a reason. That is for Him to get the best out of everything that we do and with all the nutrients of the fruits of the Spirit in tack.
Have you ever heard the term "writer's block?" This is when authors of any kind draw a blank in an area that they are usually creative in. It is my believe that this is not a block but a season of restoration and replenishing! Not just writers but many people go through a point in life where they feel none productive or faint. The majority complain or find self sabotaging things to get into to cope with life in that season when all they needed was time to let God heal and mend. We can become healthy for someone else when we are healthy for ourselves! What am I saying? The feelings of rage, bitterness, and anger_ these spirits love to lodge in those not taking time to "heal." The body of Christ needs a healing, and who better than the healer to rehabilitate, cultivate, and mend the broken? It starts with you!
How do you see it?
