Memorize: For an angel went down at certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had; John 5:4.
Devotional Reading: John 5:1-18
Our God is a God of times and seasons, likewise life generally is about time and season. Ecclesiastes 3:1; To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. In our bible reading of today, there was a crippled man by the pool of Bethesda, he missed his season’s of healing for 38 years, it was the mercy of God that made Jesus go to him, not everyone will have such opportunity or privilege. Many people have missed out their times and seasons irrecoverably, some have died without having another chance or privilege, I pray that you will not miss your time and season in Jesus name.
Time is the one thing that can never be retrieved. One may lose and regain a friend, one may lose and regain money, but time and season are not to be missed. 1 Chronicles 12:32; And the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…. You too can pray for the Sons of Issachar Anointing: to know and understand the timing and season of God for your life.
There was an incident that happened during one of our revival services; a young man came for the program and word of prophecy came out for him, he was given specific instruction as the prophet of God was led by the Holy Spirit, on the specific day this young man was instructed to carry out this instruction, he was careless and forgot, when he came back to the prophet of God and told him, he was very disappointed. When the prophet prayed and asked God what to do, the Lord instructed the prophet to tell the young man to carry out the instruction on the same day he was told, but in 7 years time. What a great miss of opportunity! Imagine what he will have to endure while waiting for 7 years.
There are some opportunities which will come our way in life that we must pray seriously not to miss, these opportunities represent our times and season’s.
I pray that the Holy Spirit will help you not to miss such times and seasons of opportunities that comes to you in Jesus name, the key is to “Watch and Pray”. May the LORD help you and I in Jesus name.
Prayer point: O God of Time and Season, remember me today in Jesus name.
Key Dose: Guard your time and season by watching and praying.
