“For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3
Simply because we are quickly approaching the end of time as we now know it; it is imperative that our “clocks” are in alignment with God’s agenda for this season.
I’m reminded of a few instances when people were in the right place (their physical location and their spiritual position), at the right time. Therefore, because their time clocks were synchronized with God’s timing - they were blessed beyond measure. Consider the: Woman of Samaria (John 4), and The Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8;26-40); they were positioned in the right place at the right time – and therefore were able to encounter life altering experiences.
To be completely synchronized I must:
- Know what season I am personally undergoing. Just understand that your personal season may differ from others who are in your church, temple, synagogue, etc.
- Understand the process of: Seed, Time & Harvest. I feel that all seeds when sown and properly cared for will produce fruit. However, there is a process that must be adhered to prior to receiving the fruit. Even though we are approaching the time when the “plowman will overtake the reaper (Amos 9:13)” – we must still understand the process to be synchronized. (Note: Also apple seeds won’t produce oranges. You can fast, pray, command and demand…. But those apple seeds will only produce apples….after the seeds have matured and are ready to be harvested. We must also know what type of seed to sow and when!)
- Know the voice of God. We are living in an era where the enemy is using those who are in positions of authority to attempt to displace, dismantle and demolish the authentic voice of God. Remember God’s voice will ALWAYS be in alignment with His written word.
- Value my time by not becoming distracted by anything that is not God ordained for THIS season.
To be completely synchronized with God’s future plans concerning us is not difficult. However it will require of us a determination to acknowledge Him in ALL of our ways – as He leads us step by step; day by day…. And in most instances minute by minute!
“Timing is so important! If you are going to be successful in dance, you must be able to respond to rhythm and timing. It’s the same in the Spirit. People who don’t understand God’s timing can become spiritually spastic, trying to make the right things happen at the wrong time. They don’t get His rhythm – and everyone can tell they are out of step. They birth things prematurely, threatening the very lives of their God-given dreams.” – T. D. Jakes
