To everything there is a season.


The Bible is quite clear that to everything there is a season. As sure as Autumn follows Summer a new season is coming. However the seasons in our lives aren't always as predictable as the seasons of nature. God has implemented the seasons which arrive in proper time and in proper order, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, repeat, every year just the same, if it were not so then our planet would be in chaos. When the seasons in our lives don't match up to what we expect then sometimes it can feel like chaos, but God.

In each season in our life, the good, the bad and the ugly, we must learn to trust in God.


Whatever season we find ourselves in, we must be prepared for the changing seasons that are ahead, and they are coming and they are changing, think about your life and think 'is this exactly how I thought it would turn out?' I very much doubt it.


But knowing God is with you in life's seasons they are better, you are stronger in them and through them.


Psalm 23 v 24 (NKJV) tells us that..........


4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil;

For You are with me;

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.


Psalm 23 is often quoted at funerals, probably because of this verse, but it isn't a 'death' Psalm on the contrary it is a 'living' Psalm, God is with us through our trials and tribulations, and He wants to bless us, particularly when we face troubles, verses 5 and 6 confirm this.


Psalm 23:5-6 New King James Version

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil;

My cup runs over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days of my life;

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord

Forever.


God is indeed our Good Shepherd in all seasons, but are we listening to Him and are we willing to be guided by Him.


Psalm 23:1

New King James Version

The Lord the Shepherd of His People

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd;

I shall not want.
