A Purpose For The Wait

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1

During winter, the ground is dormant and nothing is growing. Everything looks dead and dry.  But, in the spring it all comes back to life. Many people don’t like the winter because of the cold and colorless landscape. It’s then that we need to remind ourselves that within a few short months it will all change!

Sometimes in our walk with God, He allows us to go through a dormant season. We don’t like it because it feels like God doesn’t even know we exist. Maybe you feel like you’re not being used like you were before and that God is finished with you. But, He’s not finished.  He’s just getting you ready to move into a new season in your life.

Winter snow contains nutrients that will soak into the ground and allow the crops to grow in spring. The slower the snow melts, the more nutrients are absorbed. When we wait on God, and don’t try to hurry things, we will benefit from the wait. In a season of waiting, allow God to refresh you and prepare you for what is coming next in your walk with Him.

God has a purpose and reason for everything He does in your life.  Trust the process.

Prayer: Lord, help me to trust You in everything You are doing in my life. Help me to remember that You have a reason for everything I am going through. I want to be ready to walk into the next season of my walk with You. In Jesus Name! Amen!
