Have you ever experienced a season in life where everything seems to fall to pieces? It could be a combination of a few things, for example, loss of job – financial crisis, or a broken down relationship.
It can be really difficult to accept your current reality; especially if you had/have no control over your situation, or if it is completely out of your control to influence the outcome.
Are you feeling extreme disappointment? Are you asking yourself if God has forgotten about you? Are you blaming yourself, thinking that your current circumstance is due punishment for something you intentionally, willingly did.
The truth is, there is a reason for every season. It could be a season of repositioning (how exciting)!! It could be God wanting to refine certain gifts in you. It may be a push to complete surrender where God wants to be God, however in order for that to happen, He needs you to surrender and trust in Him, not to try and manage things in your own strength, but rather, to trust In Him and His ability.
One of my favourite verses in the Bible…
Isaiah 25:1 (AMP) O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise and give thanks to Your name; For You have done miraculous things, Plans formed long, long ago, [fulfilled] with perfect faithfulness
Resistance in a difficult season provides no purpose. Surrendering and recognising the opportunity for exponential personal growth, as difficult as the season presents is wisdom!
Whatever life has presented you, you get to choose your reaction. Do you react to circumstances based on irrational, reactive, compulsive thinking or do you choose to react based on your personal core beliefs and values?
Trying to reason with your season can pro-long the season with little to no outcome. Embracing your current reality, recognising presented opportunities, learning the lessons in your current season, leads to growth.
Embrace very season and thank God in advance for what He is orchestrating for you.
