There are three seasons of a life that will fulfill divine destiny and it is important that you know which season you are in so you can cooperate with what God is doing in you. The seasons are first, when you attain a height in the world; second, when God brings you into His process to make you; third is when you are manifesting the purpose for which God created you indeed.
When men are popular in the world before they get saved, it means that there is a great purpose for their lives, but that purpose must be harnessed, and processed before it can be used by God. Look at Moses, his life was divided into three seasons of forty years each. He became mighty in Egypt in the first forty years, and then God took forty years in the wilderness to break him down. In the last forty years, he was the mightiest prophet. If you are going to reach the peak of your purpose, your life will also have to follow those three seasons.
There is a season that you become something in the world because the devil was allowing your purpose to be used wrongly. When you get born-again, you go through a period of re-training “in the desert.” The Bible says John was in the desert until the day of his showing to Israel. The desert is where you are broken into the will of God. That is where you understand that God’s voice is more important than the voice of men and that pleasing God is more important than pleasing men. When people don’t pass through this process, they become dangerous in the place of manifestation.
Don’t hurry out of your season in the wilderness. When you hurry out of this phase, you miss out on the greater things that God is brooding upon your spirit. Many people will receive help and strength from the things you learn in your seasons in the wilderness. Can you imagine if Jesus refused the death on the cross? There will be no name above all names. Don’t tarry too long in the first season because only the devil is receiving glory from your misguided purpose.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from every misguided use of my purpose. Help me to tarry in my place of molding. Help me to pass through all you are taking me through in order to become all you want me to be in Jesus’ name. Amen.
