Success surprises us but success is built, success belongs to those who are aware that success is ephemeral or seasonal. Success obeys the season when you are successful, it is imperative that you know the importance of changing this success into success to always enjoy the benefits. The wise King Solomon, the man who tasted everything, tried everything in life, mentioned that there is a time for everything under the sun, in other words there is a season for everything.

This leads us to understand that life is made up of seasons, the integral will of God is not accomplished all at once but in phases, by eras or by seasons. Natural seasons like spring, summer, fall and winter teach us a lot about this spiritual principle. Not only to nature but to our life: 1) If there are natural seasons 2) There are also spiritual seasons This is the reality that Ecclesiastes is trying to explain, there is a time for everything, there is a season for everything, life is made up of seasons. You cannot succeed in life outside of the season. Understanding the seasons of life would save us a lot of frustration.

A time to cry, and a time to laugh; a time to lament, and a time to dance. » Ecclesiastes, 3:4.

Understanding this would save us from unnecessary jealousies and we would know how to behave in a season. The seasons do not adapt to us: it is up to us to adapt. When the winter season has arrived, dress in sweaters (at least in countries where the different seasons are distinct), if you want to dress in winter as in summer, it’s your choice. It’s up to you to change your mentality and adapt to the season. With the season one must not be stubborn, but flexible, malleable or conformist.

When a season begins, you are responsible for your choices regarding your behavior. So you need to have enough intelligence and wisdom to manage it well to get the most out of the season.

1- “There is a time for everything, a time for everything under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up the planted;” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

2- It is important for every child of God to have wisdom to discern the times in which he is, because the lives of men are influenced by the times and the seasons. When we read the Bible, we realize that it is God who controls the seasons, but they control the behavior of men. On the other hand, time management (in this specific context) is under human control.

The Pharisees and Sadducees approached Jesus and, to test him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven. Jesus answered them: In the evening you say: It will be a fine day, for the sky is red“; Matthew 16:1-3.

For a child of God, knowing that a season has begun is not enough, because God has His agenda and He expects us to have discernment as well. So, if your knowledge of times and seasons is like that of the Sadducees and Pharisees, that is, limited to natural and therefore superficial things, then you will never be able to grasp the divine agenda!

Stop being carnal and ascend into the spiritual dimension; see things as God sees them and you will see the glory of God, for He has a plan for your life and that plan will surely come to pass!

Even the stork knows its season in the heavens; The dove, the swallow and the crane Observe the time of their arrival; But my people do not know the law of the Lord. It is said in the Bible that even birds have discernment of the times, only men are ignorant. Now, when a man has the knowledge of these things, he is already favored since when a season is opened, it comes with its demands; there are actions to take and others not, also choices to make”. Jeremiah 8:7 7

What matters to God, therefore, is that his people come to an awareness so that they no longer miss their seasons. Furthermore, the Bible says that he is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season (Psalms 1:3). In other words, when a man misses a season, he will not bear the corresponding fruit and he will have permanently lost that stage of his life.
