A believer might not know when it’s the time to enter a new season due to their inability to be sensitive, discerning and it could be as a result of negligence or carelessness. You need to know when a new season is about to start, to effectively maximize and do the needful. It is because most people do not know, that is why they get frustrated, seek solace elsewhere and eventually miss out. Knowing when you’re about to start a new season helps you know what to do.
Below are ways to know a new season is about to start;
Different challenges keep coming your way when you’re about to enter your season of rejoicing or fruitfulness. This is when you begin to wonder what you’ve done wrong, and why everything seems to be blocked. At this point, you might even struggle to feed, sickness starts rolling in, etc.
Things come to you in a new light
Instead of seeing what you’re going through as a result of your sin, you begin to see the reason why you need to choose gratitude, why you need to help others more and some situations you’ve viewed in a different light begin to take another dimension that might bring about clarity.
You stopped enjoying what you love
Have you ever found yourself listening to a particular song over and over again, and then all of a sudden, you don’t like the song again? Or is there anything you love doing so much, then you just stopped loving and doing them? It could mean a new season is about to start, and the period where the previous things you loved were needed is over. The work of that season has been achieved.
All of a sudden people start calling you to favour you, different opportunities kept calling you, your interview goes through, and you got a new job or bought a new house. On the other hand, you might lose the things listed here when doors close.
You become restless and irritated
You find yourself reacting to the things you’d have ignored on a normal basis, you fret and live in worry all of a sudden.
The same thing keeps calling
This is mostly for those who have an assignment or calling in their life. It could be that you’ve received a revelation to write or speak on peace, and then you keep seeing the confirmation everywhere you turn.
People cut you off
This is so hard to accept. When people who mean so much to you, cut ties with you, start avoiding you and picking up your calls when you clearly did nothing wrong. It means something new is about to happen and they are not part of the story. Hence, you should let them go without begging them to stay.
Not all helpers are meant to help you for the rest of your life. Some are only assigned to you for a particular phase of your life and they would leave when it’s time. So stop feeling entitled and seeing them as a wicked person when they eventually stop helping you.
WHAT YOU CAN DO WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SENSE A NEW SEASON?
Jeremiah 33:3 — “3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (KJV). You need to pray, so you do not miss out on what is required of you to learn or do during that season of yours. Because when you miss a particular season of your life, what that season has for you might never come again and if it eventually will, you will have to tarry a lot for it.
So it’s better to pray ahead and during a season.
Know God is in Charge
Daniel 2:21 — “21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” (KJV). Know that whatever it is that is currently happening is known to God, He is in charge and He will determine how the events will turn out. So do not lean on your understanding.
It takes courage to overcome a season or enter into a new one. Often, a particular season might even require you to be courageous as you go through it. So if you lack that courage, you might give up.
Get ready for War
1 Peter 5:8 — “8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (KJV). If it’s a not-too-good season, the devil wants you to remain there and he doesn’t want you to enter into a good one. So you might not make it out if you’re not prepared to war at the place of prayer.
Be ready to cut ties, leave places and things:
At one point, Abraham left his father’s house, he and Lot had to separate from one another, etc.
The signs are always there when you are about to enter into a new season, you just have to be spiritually sensitive and only the Spirit can help your infirmities.
