Just as there are seasons in the year, there are seasons in life. There will be times of joy, excitement, adventure, new beginnings, and there will also be times of pain and struggle. Each stage is crucial for growth for our characters and our spiritual integrity. We do not realise our weaknesses until we are tested and at the same time we also grow in strength through the tests and trials. From one victory to the next, God leads us in triumphant procession!
Hebrews 12:11 “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.“
2 Corinthians 2:14 “But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.“
Lord Jesus, i want to embrace each season that i walk in. In times to rejoice, let my heart rejoice to the fullest, in times of trials, let me pour myself out to you, but in everything, let me grow more intimate with you, more grateful and aware of your care and presence in each season. So that i may know how real and true your plans are for me – plans to prosper me and to give me a future.
