New Season, New Life Emerging

“Season of Bounty” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

Song of Solomon 2:10-12 (VOICE) My love responded and said to me, [Him] “Arise, my dearest, my beauty, and come away with me. Don’t you see? The winter is done. The rains and clouds have come and gone. The flowers are unfolding in the fields; the birds are warming up their songs, The cooing of the turtledove is heard throughout the land.”

Behold, you have entered into a new season, beloved. You feel it in your bones and know it in your heart, and yet you are tempted to hesitate because your gaze is fixed on seasons past. Yes, you have known the pain of what it is like to step outside of My timing and My will when you step ahead of Me. You have witnessed that depending upon your own strength and understanding does not bear fruit or profit you. But look at your past with grace and mercy, for from that place of weakness you also discovered true strength and the Source of your life. The winter seasons have passed and they have resulted in a deep abiding joy and a life-giving flow of My Holy Spirit within you. Indeed, I say that you are a tree that is bearing good fruit.

As you step into this new season, remember that you are an extension of Me. I have created you for good works that will glorify the Father in heaven. Be comforted and be encouraged, beloved; refuse to be intimidated into stepping back. For I know you well and would not call you to step forward into this new season unless I deemed it time. Therefore, trust in Me, continue to abide in Me and be lead by My Spirit. You will know that My hand is in this new season and new direction, for what I move you to do by My Spirit and what I set into your hands will surely prosper and flourish. For blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply these new seeds of purpose and destiny within you. 

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (VOICE) and I know God has made everything beautiful for its time. God has also placed in our minds a sense of eternity; we look back on the past and ponder over the future, yet we cannot understand the doings of God.
