If you live long enough, you will agree with me that life is full of Highs and lows; moments of abundant Joy… Then unannounced sorrow that seems to last forever; mountain top harvest experiences followed by downward spiral valley dryness. Why can’t the seasons of harvests last forever and those annoying times of dryness last as long as the blink of an eye? There is a promise in your pain and a purpose in your persecution.
Ecclesiastes 3:1&11(NIV) says…
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity
under the heavens:…. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ezekiel 37:1-3 says…
The hand of the LORD was upon me,and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord GOD, you know.”
You must realise that every season has its own purpose and virtue; while the season of abundant harvest may birth in you a spirit of generosity, don’t complain while you acquire some management skills in the season of dryness where you also learn patience for the next harvest. Life will be so boring if all you always experience is being on the mountain top; sometimes God sets you in the valley so you become a more rounded person who is grateful for everything. HE IS THE SAME GOD ON THE MOUNTAIN AS HE IS IN YOUR VALLEY. Today no matter what season you are…look at God right there with you. Your eyes become clearer to see him as you praise him for where you are towards where you want to be. The best antidote for Your Dry season is God’s Presence…Song of Solomon 2:1 says… HE IS THE LILY of the valleys. Welcome to a new season.
Isaiah 44:3 says…
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring.
