UNDERSTANDING TIME

The Word: Genesis 17: 21 (KJV)

21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

Dig Deeper:

Genesis 18: 14  (KJV)

14 Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Think about it

UNDERSTANDING TIME
Still on Vision, Planning, Strategies, Goals, Timing

Psalm 102: 13
13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

There is what is called SET TIME.
There is also what is called APPOINTED TIME
You will see this two repeated throughout scriptures…..
It suggests that God works in seasons.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 – 3

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavenA time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

Our lives are segmented into seasons.
There is a planting season, there is harvest season,
There is season of abundance, (when everything works) there is wilderness season (when there is unexplainable difficulty)
There are seasons of warfare, there are seasons of peace. David fought warfare most of his life. Solomon however had relative peace throughout……
There is a season when God is silent, It would seem God has forgotten us in those times, however there is a season of visitation when God open the book of remembrance.  
There is a season of humiliation when it seems we are unfairly treated, there is a season of glorification when God goes out of his way to honour us
There is a season of weeping – Sarah and Hannah experienced such, but there was a season of laughter when God changed their story.

Our Divine season now is a season of NEXT LEVEL when God is translating us to the NEXT PHASE, the NEXT CHAPTER of our lives. 
What does God need from us?

– Expectation
– Prayer
– Taking responsibility to do our own part
– And Obedience

Nuggets:
NEXT LEVEL is a season when God changes our level upward
