We all have times in our lives when God feels distant, when He seems silent, and when we can’t see Him working. These times can last for a day or for a season, and one of the biggest challenges we face during these times is Satan lying to us.
When we’re in challenging seasons of life, taking time to rest is usually one of the last things on our minds, but actually, it should be one of the first.
Resting can mean taking an actual rest by stopping our usual activities and allowing our minds, bodies, and spirits to be renewed.
But resting can also occur while we’re still working.
Are you in a confusing, frustrating, or challenging season of life? I know how painful and exhausting those seasons can be, and God has had to gradually do a work in my heart to show me that He has a reason for each season of life, and that He wants me to view each season as a learning and growing experience with Him. While I’m definitely not an expert at it, I’d like to share 3 tips for embracing your season, and I hope they are helpful and encouraging to you in your season as well!
Isn’t it so incredibly frustrating when we’re in a season of waiting on God, and even though we’re obeying Him and doing what He asks us to do, He still doesn’t give us what we’re waiting for? I mean, we’re doing what He wants, so why won’t He do what we want? I’ve gone through this myself, so if I may, I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you.
There have been several times in my life when I’d been begging God to work, and all I heard in return was silence. Sometimes, the silence was simply due to the fact that God wasn’t ready to work, and I had to learn to wait for His timing. Other times, however, the silence was due to my own wrong thinking, unbelief, and inaction.
