Time & Seasons
The God who lives outside of time, has given to man both times and seasons (Dan. 2:21; Acts 1:7; 1 Thess. 5:1). We need both. Seasons have to do with focus. It is as we do the thing of a season in its season that we see fruitfulness in our lives. But time has to do with having a past and a future. God needs neither: He is ever present. But in this world that we live in, we need a future to give us hope and a past to give us closure.
Some things need to be placed in our past so that we can move forward without hindrance. What we hold to, we give life to. Some things need to die so that other things can live. Now is the time to put our past into the past and direct our life towards our dreams and our potential.
Other things we have yet to obtain - they are still in our future. Do not let that discourage you. If you can see it, you can have it. The future is ours. It is faith that lays hold of our future and makes it our now (Heb. 11:1).
As we learn to live each day in communion with the One who lives outside of time, so our mistakes and heartaches become our past and our hopes and dreams become our now. So at the beginning of yet another year, I encourage you to close out the old and step into the new. It is time to let go of the past and dream big. Regardless of how many years we have seen, there is always more before us than there is behind us. The God we serve is a big God and His plans for us are bigger and better than what our wildest dreams could ever imagine.
So welcome to 2012. It is going to be a good year, because God is a good God. There are things that were once our future that will become our now. So don't be afraid to put your faith out there - even for things you have been believing for, for years. Believe again, dream big and send your servant out there one more time. The clouds of rain are on our horizon (1 Kings. 18:44). Can you hear the sound?
Thank you for being a friend of The Secret Place and for partnering with us in “turning hearts back to the Father through intimate praise and worship”.
May you be blessed in The Secret Place.
