Your “Due Season” Is Right Around The Corner

Romans 8:18 – “I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us.”

Always remember, that your “due season” is right around the corner.  In life, everyone experiences hurt, pain, rejection, death, confusion, hardship and an array of other trials and tribulations during the course of their lived experiences.  Experiences that sometimes make you want to give up, and “throw in the towel” of life.  If you are thinking like this or you have thought like this in the past, DON’T throw in that proverbial towel.  Why?  It is just “labor pains” and your “breakthrough” is fast approaching.  Let me explain.  When a woman is in the process of giving birth to one of God’s children, there are sometimes minutes, hours and even days of labor pains leading up to the actual birth of their child.  Several women have told me, that these labor pains are otherworldly, and the pain can cause a discomfort that is indescribable and sometimes unbearable to manage.  But then they stated, once they gave birth to their child and held their child in their arms, they were filled with a joy, a love and a peace that made them forget about the former labor pains, because they knew God’s glory was upon them.  As Paul states, “They had a peace that surpasses all understanding.”

Therefore, never forget that God, the Creator, is in the glorifying business!  So, when you are in a season of “labor pains,” get ready for your “due season,” because you are about to give birth to a new spirit, a new love, a new understanding, a new joy, a new way of life, a new job, a new relationship and a new bill of health, because God is about to shine God’s glory on you and take your spirit just a little bit higher, if you just hold on a little bit longer.

Always remember God knows “exactly” what God is doing ALL the time.
