A New Season

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19).

We are currently in the season of autumn which is a season of shedding. If we observe the behaviour of the trees, in preparation for winter, the trees first change colour and then they shed their leaves. Similar to the trees, there are many habits, behaviours, practices and even relationships that we cannot take into a new season. It is time for us to realign and restructure as we rebuild and establish new perimeters and boundaries. Some patterns and associations may end or change, as many cycles have come to an end. We cannot grieve over old systems and old ways of doing things.

Nehemiah understood the importance of rebuilding Isreal’s walls and gates. “And when all our enemies heard of it, all the nations around us were afraid and fell greatly in their own esteem, for they perceived that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God” (Nehemiah 6:16). After Nehemiah rebuilt the walls, the surrounding countries were afraid, because the Jews were no longer defenceless. The rebuilding did not happen without opposition and challenges from Sanballat and Tobiah. As Nehemiah remained focused, the rebuilding was complete. As borders are important to protecting resources, boundaries are important to protect our personal time and energy.

We have to guard our hearts, from which flows the issues of life. Once we have appropriate boundaries, God is able to channel resources to and through us. God will not transfer resources to people without boundaries and systems to maintain it. We have to demonstrate the ability to be good stewards. As good stewards, we can work what God has given us, create increase and redistribute, but the walls around us need to be built up. “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous” (Proverbs 13:22).

There are people around us in this season with the Cyrus Anointing, who God will use to be a blessing to us. God did not always use righteous kings to establish his people and to restore their dwellings. “Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah” (Ezra 1:2). God will continue to separate his elect so that we will be preserved to usher in the end time harvest. Rejection and separation are often signs of God’s redirection. Abraham was commanded to come out from his family and Joseph had to be separated from his people in order to be prepared to lead Egypt.

  1. Not only is nature a great teacher but gives an example to follow. I am purging my possessions in the hopes of taking on a new life inside me, without being weighted down by things, just as the trees shed their leaves. Another great post! Thanks!🙏🏽

  2. Thanks for this timely reminder. I can attest to being in an autumn season which has been resulting in spiritual expansion. And even as we expand spiritually God can trust us with greater revelation of spiritual things. I’ve also come to experience persons outside of christendom being the most supportive of my business and the most willing to impart knowledge in that regard. Keep writing truth, the world needs it.

  3. Boundaries are important in protecting our personal time and energy. I have found that having boundaries help me be a better vessel for Christ. It helped me move away from people pleasing.

  4. We can use a shedding, even the separation. It may be uncomfortable, but it is always for God’s glory, and satisfying to our spirit to know that God will use us, and bless us.
    God bless you

  5. This autumn 🍂 God has put on a spectacular show. The reds, oranges, yellows, and the greens. And now they have begun to shed, the beautiful colors are fading, but still I look forward to God using those same leaves for a new purpose, in my garden. This shed leaves now lay in my garden, preparing the soil for a fresh beginning next spring💕
