Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Everyone I believe knows the difference between a mango fruit that is ripe and one that is not ripe. Apart from the change in external color, there is great difference also in taste. When you start eating the fruit, you will know if it is ripe or not. Unripe fruits are usually sour to taste and less enjoyable.
First, every tree gets to maturity before it starts fruiting. This varies from tree to tree. Second, the fruit they produce must also mature before they are harvested. Both processes take place within time. In other words, both processes need time. There are no short-cuts. During the waiting period the plant receives the needed nourishment from the rich soil and the atmosphere above the soil.
The same happens to the Christian. It is obvious that mature believers will bear much more fruit than novices doing trial and error. When your season comes, your productivity is enhanced. If your time is not come, you may bear fruit but that fruit may not abide. Every Christian therefore owes it to himself to go through the process by which his/her due time will come. Today’s passage takes us through some of the requirements for being ready in the fullness of your time. Follow the teaching.
1. Thank God for creating process for everything we do in this world to ensure things happen at their right time.
2. Ask God for patience to go through process till your time comes
3. Father, please give me the discipline to go through the process You have instituted for everything You are working in my life.
I declare that my time will come. The time for my breakthrough will come. The time for Your purposes in my life will come. I believe in the God of process. I subject myself to His plans, purposes and processes. I will therefore wait patiently on You till my change comes. I declare that my Father is faithful and He will manifest me in due season in the name of Jesus.
