The Best Season


See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,

redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:15-16


Life is a lot like the weather . . . it’s seasonal. It has a way of pushing us into the next season whether we like it or not. And when pushed into the next season, we are often uncertain and even fearful of what it might hold for us.


This is especially true of later seasons of life, when we are haunted by thoughts such as: Will I be left all alone? Will my health hold up? Will my money last? Will my mind stay alert? As with every season of life, we have to make a choice—to waste the season in fearful thoughts or, as Paul says, make “redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” (Eph 5:16).


Regardless of your season, you can count on God’s faithfulness. He says, “‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear’” (Heb 13:5-6).


Because you have God’s presence and provision, you can make the most of your time in every season by following the Lord Jesus closely, spending time in His Word and prayer, loving and forgiving more freely than ever before, and serving others with joy and generosity.

God has blessed us with our present season—make the most of it!

Read

Exodus 32:15-29.

Prayer

Lord, grant me the grace to accept life right where it has put me, and help me to overcome the fear that would waste my days. Give me the wisdom and desire to make every day count for You. In Jesus name. Amen.
