“He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?”

Matthew 16:2-3

The ability to discern times and season seem to Jesus an important factor. So much so, it looks as if anyone who misses out on understanding God’s time and season, such individual might ultimately miss out on God’s plans and purposes on the earth.

The book of Ecclesiastes reiterates this reality, that on earth times and seasons regulate the affairs of things. Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” In the wisdom of God, He designed that the unveiling of His plans and purposes will be regulated by the laws of time and season and anyone who fails to understand this stands a chance of losing out completely in achieving or fulfilling the plan of God.

Furthermore, the lack of understanding of this pattern usually leads to frustration on the part of the individuals who have erred on the path of discerning the time and season of their life. They do all they can, and despite all their effort, to them, it doesn’t seem to work. The problem is not insufficient trial and dedication, sometimes the missing link is an inability to figure out what time or season you as an individual are in.

And so, amongst other things that a believer must be rich in the knowledge of, the believer must understand how to decode what season he is in according to God’s calendar of things.

When we understand how to live like this, we will enjoy more peace and fulfilment as God’s people and ultimately too, will be successful in God’s plan and purposes for our lives.
