“[The Lord] appointed the moon for the seasons; the sun knows [the exact time of] its setting.” Psalm 104:19 (AMP)
Every moment of every day, in all the world, in every life, with its flawless rhythm and unfolding wonder, was held in the heart of God from the beginning of time. And when God was setting the seasons for the sun and the moon—He was setting the seasons for you too!
His first priority is to lead you to the place of intimate connection with Him where true life flows and from there lead you in the divine purposes He has for you—always inviting, always encouraging for His best.
There are times where we may be out of alignment with God’s perfect plan for us, and things seem a lot harder than they need to be. Even that He has prepared for, with His new mercy mornings, readily available to you, and a chance to begin again with the dawn of each day and rising sun!
If you find yourself rushing ahead and feel suddenly alone, just turn around and see Him coming, He will lead you back to the place where provision waits, and into the fullness of where you are meant to be.
If you have lagged behind in the richness of all that He has planned—perhaps a lack of confidence or courage has kept you back from what you knew God had designed for you to do—He will meet you there too. Encouraging, supporting, and leading you, step by step, into His best. In His love He will not force you, staying with you exactly where you are, but continually holding the possibilities before you of what could be, and allowing you to choose.
Each season has a purpose; each season has a lesson to be gained as you align your heart with His—moment by moment, day-by day, season by ordered season. He has perfectly planned those days, precious one, for the sun, the moon, the stars—and for purposefully chosen and deeply cherished you!
