When God is bringing us out of a season, and he begins to take us into the next season, there is a turning point in which we must make it through the turn in order to shed that current season. Spiritual seasons are similar to natural seasons in that they end to begin the next season when the times come. Now there is one crucial way in which spiritual seasons are not similar to natural seasons: we can pretty much be sure, for now anyway with global warming and stuff all on the season rising; that natural seasons will end on time, or in the neighborhood of time for the most part in whatever cycle a particular region has become use to over all the years. On the other hand, a spiritual season may not ever end during ones life time if the turn through the turning point is missed. A spiritual season can last as short as a natural season, or it can last for forty years; and then on until it doesn’t matter anymore as far as those that may die along the way is concerned. I have for a few weeks been playing around with the natural season’s turning point between cool and warm weather (spring), and warm and hot weather (summer). Since I live in Southern California, cool and warm weather are always on the verge of being kicked out of season for the warm and hot weather. This season’s cycle in SoCal has been more wet, and more cooler than what we are use to, but we know that the good ole faithful SoCal hot weather will be arriving any turn now. And speaking of turns, I have gone into the house storage to put away the warmer clothes as we say out this way, for it is still hard to catch many of us in what most people may call an actual coat. I may get to put away the warmer clothes by Memorial day as I believe that I have made it through the turning point of the turn. We can declare, or act on making it through the turning point of the turn once we see the temperatures remain above a certain degree, as oppose to the regular dipping below the degree needed to put the warmer clothes away for the next season that we have had more of this season cycle. We don’t want to miss not making it through the cool and warm weather turn into the warm and hot weather only because we made our move to soon to put away the warmer clothes. If we move to soon in the natural season, and the weather still comes cool, we will be able to withstand the move to put away the warm clothes a week, two weeks or whatever too early. However, if we move to soon in the spiritual season before the turn of the turning point, then we may have to remain in the turn made longer because we made it the turning point while still in the current season. The Will Of Father Is The Text Of The Turn.
So how do we know if we are about to make a turn too early in a spiritual season? We are in a skill dilemma more than we are in a faith dilemma anytime the turning point begins to turn. When we see a season have some turns to come forth, we want to make sure not to go and make any moves in the turn too early. These early turns are not the turning point in which we must make it through to shed the current season. Let’s use the natural for an example of having some turns to come forth in which we do not want to make a turn move too soon: even in SoCal we know better than to make the turn to put the warmer clothes away, and to declare beach season is open just because we had a couple of ninety degree days in March. Yes, all that sunlight and warmth did feel good for those two days; however, the experience, the forecast, and the skill to not turn is what keeps up in good standing for the rest of March and April in how we dress. There is no lost of faith, hope, desire, expectation, or belief in the beach season, but the skill made up by the experiences, the forecasts, and the been here done the SoCal weather before is why the turn to declare beach season is open is not made too early. We have to not make our turns in our spiritual seasons too soon, we have to know how to make it through the turns until the real turning point does come. We can become more skilled to remain in the turn, and not turn too early by keeping our eye on our word of hope: the word of hope is always the text of the turn. When it is time for the turning point, it is our skill in the word more so than our faith that will get us through the turn. The reason that faith is not a concern is because we want to do this season with all our heart; and the problem comes because we need to monitor our eagerness to keep us ready for the true turning point. Oh yeah, we have no lack of faith, but we need too be watchful as to when to use it. Since we know that nothing of the Father’s Will turns without the Word; and that it is by the Word in which all things are made, then we will look for the Word to turn in order to make our turn. John 1:3, “All things were made by him (the Word); and without him was not any thing made that was made.” So hold back the urge to declare beach season in March just because you had a couple of ninety degree days in March. Spiritually speaking, we are always looking for the text of the turn to be the Word who is making the turns comes forth, and he is not just trending at the moment. No, when the Word sends forth turns, or ninety degree days in March, you know that you must prepare to make it through the turn in order to shed the current season for the turn is letting you know that it is on the way.
