8 Reasons God Will Change Your Season

WE ARE UNSETTLED when we transition from one stage of life to another.


However, God determines the boundaries of eras and changes the times and the seasons (Dan. 2:21).


God moves people from one season to another.


JOSEPH TRIED to change the season of his life when he begged the cupbearer to say a word for him (Gen. 40:1-9).


When the time was right, God created a need that only he could meet and moved him forward.


WHEN GOD wants to move you forward, he sends help.


He sent help to the Widow of Sarepta, but it was disguised as a test of ownership.


For her to move from the season of lack to the season of more than enough, she had to feed Elijah (1 Kings 17:7-16).


She had to be faithful in handling the little for God to give her more.


To change your season, you have to be faithful (Luke 16:10).


GOD WILL only move you for a reason.


He moved David from obscurity to the limelight to prepare him for the throne.


God does not look at the outward appearance but the heart (1 Sam. 16:1-13).


So, there was something about David’s heart that touched God.


When your heart is pure before God, he moves you from one season to the next.


GOD WILL MOVE you to meet a need.


Joseph was sold to the Midianites to fulfill prophecy and meet a need that would arise in the future (Gen. 15:13; 37:27).


Light brings growth.

Plants embrace light to receive life. Joseph embraced the dream of God and grew.


He believed it and shared it.


God trusted him and moved him into the next phase of his life.


GOD DOES NOT share secrets with strangers. He will not entrust his treasures to someone he cannot trust.


When the three men who visited Abraham were leaving, God wondered if he would hide things from him.


So he said: For I know that he will command his family after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice (Gen. 18:17-19).


God was willing to move him forward because he knew Abraham would make Him known to his family.


If you want God to move you into a new season, you must engage Him—and be willing to know Him and make him known.

 

What you embrace, you become.


GOD WILL CHANGE your season to establish you.


After Abraham separated from Lot, God said to him: Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west.


All the land that you see, I will give to you and your offspring forever (Gen. 13:14-15).


God saw Abraham’s integrity and expanded him.


Until some people leave your life, you will not move forward.


TO MOVE FORWARD, you may need to meet a need in the house of God.


A need for a priest arose in Israel when Eli‘s sons, Hophni and Phinehas, defiled the women and desecrated God’s temple and sacrifices.


So when Hanah vowed to give a son that she was yet to conceive, it touched the heart of God.


God did not stop at giving her a son; he made him his priest (1 Sam. 2:12-36).


GOD IS ALWAYS on the move. He moves people to take ownership.


When the things that concern him matter to you, he backs you up with all you need.


Nehemiah became a recipient of God’s favour after he wept over the state of Jerusalem and took ownership of their sins.


He found favour before his boss and received resources and assistance to return and build (Neh. 1; 2:1-7).


CHANGING SEASONS comes with a responsibility.


Throughout Jesus’ time on earth, he did not do any miracles for himself.


Satan said to him, If you're the Son of God, throw yourself down.


For it is written, he will command his angels to bear you up lest you dash your foot against a stone (Matt. 4:6-7). But Jesus said no.


His food was to do the Father’s Will—and he moved from giving the greatest sacrifice to earning the greatest name (John 4:34; Phil. 2:9).


One way to shorten a season is to give God pleasure. You do this by seeking what gladdens his heart.


Bringing it Together


ANYONE whose trajectory suddenly changes is an indication that they were rewarded.


When manifestation begins, put no pressure on yourself but on God because he promised (Isa. 43:26).


Write his promises, declare them over your life and watch for the manifestations. Hold fast to your confessions of faith.


And when God’s promises come to pass, give Him praise!
