There is an old adage “Spring forward, Fall back” that is used for daylight savings time. The Lord gave me this word for those of you that feel as if you have been stuck in a winter season (spiritually) for a long time. Rejoice in this cold, dry season, because your spring season is just ahead, but also recognize that the Holy Spirit speaks in the winter seasons as well as all others. Although you may feel as if the heavens are brass and Jesus is so distant during this time, He is not. Changing of seasons are necessary as He is training you and positioning you for the days ahead. The sons of Issachar knew how to discern the times and seasons for the people.
The Lord says, spend time with Me, and trust Me to bring those times of refreshing back to you. I have created seasons in the natural as well as the spiritual realm for a purpose. Just as they would in the natural, these seasons will release a change in your life and atmosphere. Trust Me in those times of barrenness. Things may not look as you expected but know that I am in every season of your life. Don’t get thrown off course when seasons change but learn to flow with My leading. Don’t wrestle with shifting seasons but rather stay focused and learn how to be content in every situation. Allow Me to restructure your life as you go through these adjustments. Change is always necessary for your spiritual growth. Stay in My timing. Don’t try to birth something out of its due season or it will become an Ishmael
I will bring life in those winter seasons when things seem dead all around you. I will bring growth in the spring seasons and everything will come into full bloom. I will bring My glory in those summer seasons to revive and refresh you. I will bring changes in those fall seasons to prepare you for your advancement. Learn to recognize what I am doing in every season so that you will be content and able to move forward. There are lessons to be learned that are necessary for growth in every season . Do not fear change. This is the season to embark on new journeys and enter new dimensions in My kingdom as you submit to the season that I have placed you in says the Lord.
“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer,
and day and night shall not cease.”
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.
First Chronicles 12:32
From Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do-200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command.
