January 18 – Signs and Seasons

It is undeniable. There are signs all around. Some are man-made and others are God-engraved.

From the lakes, mountains, caves and canals, all it takes is a willing eye to see and agree there is a Somebody behind the scene doing great things. But even beyond that, look at the modern and not-so-modern discoveries of mankind.

How about heart transplants? Look at how easily we get from one place to the next, locally and internationally? The Internet? I log on and think, “Oh, the places we can go!” These are signs in our midst telling us more than we often take time to comprehend.

It is not for me to determine what the sun or the moon is saying to you today, nor do I encourage an actual conversation with them. But depending on the “season” you are experiencing, either of them can be a confirming voice of insight for you.

This is why it is tantamount that you and I pursue an active dialogue with the Father concerning such matters. The world has never failed to have its fair share of “spin doctors” when it comes to signs. Yet, when it comes to understanding what you should or should not do as it pertains to God’s will for you, misreading the seasons and the signs that accompany them can be costly.

If you read this and quickly realize you missed a sign a ways back down the road of life, don’t spend time fretting and regretting. Humbly acknowledge and admit the fact to God and yourself. Then ask Him to get you turned around in the right direction.

Trust me, I have had my fair share of ditches and detours, and I can tell you, the speed and precision by which the Father can curb and correct misdirection is out of this world. And He often turns any mess we make into a message as a sign for future seasons on down the road!

 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;” and it was so. Genesis 1:14-15 NKJV

Biblical Meditation: Isaiah 30:21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
