We learnt from the wise King Solomon that there is a time for every purpose under heaven and this of course includes every human being.
Everyone wants to be greatly successful, but there is a process to undergo before the success comes.
We must give consideration to the unique seasons we are in as individuals at every point in time.
Many times, people get lucky and get a taste of the success they are pursuing before the time comes.
David for example got a taste of being the number one citizen of Israel before he sat on the throne.
After killing Goliath, the women considered him the most important man in the nation. They even sang that he was more successful than King Saul.
“And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.” – (1 Samuel 18:7)
This short taste of success did not make David plan a coup and overthrow Saul.
He knew it was not yet time, so he went back to serving Saul.
Many people these days would have started their own army and called it ‘The Giant Slayers’ and the name of David would have faded away.
A medical student who treats malaria successfully and goes to open a hospital will soon become the only patient there.
Go through the process necessary for success. There is a seed time and a harvest time.
If you eat all the seed up, when harvest time comes, there would be nothing to reap. If you are in doubt, always ask God what season of your life you are in.
Egypt would have perished during the famine if God had not revealed to Pharaoh in a dream that a season of abundance was coming and it would be followed by a season of famine (Genesis 41:25-32).
God is the controller of times and seasons; you should constantly ask Him what season of your life you’re currently in so you don’t commit any errors or miss out on the prospective blessings.
