Every demarcation in time gives us the opportunity for a fresh start. Lamentations 3:23 expresses God’s mercies are new every morning and great is His faithfulness. Morning does not only mean that we are constrained by a 24-hour clock but signifies where there has been darkness light is about to break forth. The delineation from day to morning is generally referred to as the “break of day”. John 1:3-5 (NKJV) says that, “ In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” I decree the enemy will no longer hinder or seize your new day and where there has been darkness the light is about to break, shatter, violate, destroy and subdue it.
One of the greatest challenges as a believer is discerning when one season is over and a new one is beginning. Sunrise and sunset look the same if you don’t know what time it is. Knowing the time is vital to what your response will be. The sons of Issachar were men who understood and could discern the times and the season in order to give the children of Israel direction and instruction (I Chronicles 7:1). It is our prophetic responsibility and kingdom right through the Holy Spirit to be as the sons of Issachar since discerning the times can determine the outcome and productivity of the next season.
In addition, God will in these seasons prune and correct. A harsher season of pruning will produce and greater season of fruitfulness. Correction will prohibit us from making duplicate mistakes, solidify our sonship and purge us from anything that can hinder us from going forward. Per scripture God is a father that disciplines His children. Paul understood the value of correction and wrote in Hebrews 12:11-12, “For it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it; strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees make level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.”
In closing, I believe we are on the brink of a divine turn-around. Isaiah 54:2 pronounces, “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.” It is time for a spiritual comeback! If you have been lax, relegated to the background, fatigued, fearful, weary and AWOL welcome back! The spirit of the Lord will once again infuse you with strength, courage, wisdom and ability for the season ahead.
