Probably you have been discouraged and disheartened with your own progress but the Bible shows our God is never in hurry. God took 80 years to prepare Moses including a season of 40 years in the desert. What God is doing in our lives is contrary to the popular quick success promised by the world. The world guaranteed quick success without obligation and responsibility such as ‘no money down’, ‘instant success guaranteed’ but there is no shortcut to maturity, God is more interested in our character development.
In your season of sowing, stand firm in the Lord like Joseph, though abandoned and forsaken, he continued to be faithful in every places he was at whether it was the palace or the prison. In your season of waiting, again, seek the counsel of the Lord and renew your strength through daily communion to God through the Holy Spirit, let your strength be renewed like an eagle who soars best during the storm allowing the wind the bring him higher above the storm. In your season of reaping, remember to give thanks to the Lord for He is always guiding you, loving you and developing you to your fullest God-like character.
Most of all, through all seasons, choose to trust and believe in the heart of the Lord that desires good things for us. Truly, God is good, all the time.
Psalm 86:12 ESV
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.
