NEW SEASON - PART 2 "WINTER SEASON"

Hello friends!  Hope you are feeling the Love of Jesus today.  So we are going to continue on with part 2 of “New Season”. Part 1 began the journey and we are about to go through verse 11! 

 

Song of Solomon 2:8-13

Ah, I hear my lover coming! He is leaping over the mountains, bounding over the hills.

9 My lover is like a swift gazelle or a young stag, Look; there he is behind the wall,looking through the window, peering into the room.10 My lover said to me, “Rise up, my darling!Come away with me, my fair one! 11 Look, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone. 12 The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come,

and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air. 13 The fig trees are forming young fruit,and the fragrant grapevines are blossoming. Rise up, my darling! Come away with me, my fair one!”

In this brief blog, it is my desire to show that we all go through seasons and all of us are at different places within a given season in our walk with Jesus. I love how the Word of God can bring hope, clarity and motivation anytime we dive in to see what the Spirit of the Lord is saying!

 

Ok. Verse 11 – the beginning to realize you are in a season!  That’s the first step.  Many times we hear people saying, why the Lord isn’t speaking, must be a season…hmm…

Look,the winter is past

LOOK – so often we read to fast and miss important words that bring awareness to what the writer is actually trying to stress.  What does the word “Look” mean?  To turn your eyes to see!

 

We need to see where we stand to make a difference.  It not enough to say this is a season, but to see around you what season you are in. Look the winter is past.

 

What is the winter season – of course it can change due to a person – but mainly the winter season is a season of bareness.  No fruit. A time where we need to be examining our heart – seeking after the goodness of God. 

 

Winter is a symbol of spiritual climate.  To survive in such a climate, we need a source of fire to produce heat to stay warm. I believe this is a time that the Lord does a work in our heart, mind and spirit to get us ready and prepared to go into the next season.

 

Also this season could be a state of heaviness.  Someone carrying burdens that they need to be leave at the Cross.  Snow is very pretty to look at (but it can be heavy, as it accumulates it gets weighty and puts a structure to a stress test) – meaning many walk around with a smile and ask as though things are well – in reality they are hurting inside from the burdens that are carrying.

 

How do we get beyond this season?  We must come to the point of saying – Not by my understanding but by His.  There may need to be repentance to begin to take away the burdens.  Seeking forgiveness is different then repenting – later blog!

 

We must seek help in the body – lets look at the snow analogy again – say you are not able to go out and shovel the snow to make a path to walk.  You seek help, correct?  If one part of the Body suffers, the whole Body suffers.  We are created to help each other in the Body of Christ.  You hurt yourself even more, if you don’t seek help.  At times, not seeking help will keep you in that season longer. 

 

There are times where we need the body to support, encourage and pray with us.  Never become a loner –in prayer the Lord can speak to someone a word of Wisdom to bring you to a place of freedom for the winter season.

 

Worship is another key to help “melt” the coldness around our heart.  Our worship has the potential to ignite a fire in our heart that sets us free. 

 

I do want to say, in every season – we should seek the Lord for His will and what is there to gain at this time.  He doesn’t have seasons for us to walk in without making us stronger more powerful and stable then we were before we entered into that time. Don’t go through a season without reaping its benefits!

 

Part 3 we will look at the second part of verse 11.  I don’t want to rush through nor have too much to read in each blog!

 

Blessings,

Les Tomlinson, Jr.
