“Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years’” (Gen. 1:14 NKJ).
God created the seasons of the earth. The earth’s surface and the activity upon it changes with the different seasons. God has set the heavenly bodies, including the sun, to regulate the seasons of the earth. Our lives, like the earth, also have different seasons, from winter to fall.
A profound truth to grasp from the scripture above is that the lights in the heavens govern the seasons of the earth. The seasons of your life are determined by the degree of heavenly light you are walking in. The Lord asked Job, “Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?” (Job 38:33 NKJ). God wants us to understand the laws of heaven and apply these laws to change the circumstances of our lives. There are seasons in your life that are under your control. You cannot experience more of God than your revelation of Him. Turn on a new season in your life! His Word is the ordinance of heaven!
Are all spiritual seasons on earth under our control (see Acts 1:7)?
APPLY THE WORD
There are seasons that are under our control. You can start a new season in your life today by making a decision to do what God says, whether in your finances, relationships, or health. Giving and diligence will start a new season of prosperity in your life. Speaking kindly to your spouse might start a new season in your marriage. Do something to change your season!
Ask the Lord to help you identity the season you are in right now and show you how to change them for the better.
