It's an O Thing!

By now you are aware that Oprah may be transitioning to her next season in life, It is a part of the latest media buzz but are you transitioning to your next season in life? Oprah has done and is doing her thing and apparently has insight enough to know when it’s time for change-whether it’s a big change or a little change.
Transitioning is an O thing--as in Over!

We all have to eventually come face to face with change. Some change we have to embrace and allow and other changes are going to happen without our permission. Learning to know (discern) and flow (cooperate) with the various seasons of your life is a must for the person who wants to stay in step with God.

Ecclesiastes 3:1
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

This year has brought me face to face with several who want to bypass their season(s) of being students of the word and go directly to being teachers of the word. We should be lifelong students of the word but the ‘student’ season I’m referring to is one where you learn biblical and scriptural basics—I meet many new Christians and Christians who have been attending church for a lengthy season who just don’t want to take the time to do that. What’s up with that?

Hebrews 5:12 (NIV)
In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

Professionally we get training and/or attend college to be skilled at what we do but we do not apply those same principles to our spiritual development—why?

We’ve even fallen into the trap of reading books about the bible more than we read the bible itself. AND attempting to have an effective prayer life with little or no reading of God’s word which is the very substance of our faith.

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

As we prepare for our NEXT with God it is necessary and beneficial to complete our current season—trying to skip ahead is a formula for a setback. Keep the main thing the main thing and first things first and STUDY of God’s word accompanied by PRAYER is always in season and is always THE season. This is a season for new Christians and ‘old hands’ alike to be refreshed in eating the meat of the word. No matter where you are, God has another level of devotion and promotion for you.

1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

An attitude of spiritual laziness has and is attempting to attach itself to God’s people; if you feel it shake it off! God supplies the ‘filling’ but we have to supply the hunger and thirst. AND getting back to  the basics is God's word of the hour for EVERY believer. 

Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

It’s a new season--an O thing! Just another tiney thought for ya!
