While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted…
Do not say, “Why were the former days better than these?” For you do not inquire wisely concerning this… in the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: surely God has appointed the one as well as the other, so that man can find out nothing that will come after him.
I call you My Beloved because you belong to Me. I am your Shepherd and you are My sheep. Seek pasture with your Shepherd. Do not seek what is out of your Shepherd's will. He knows what is best for you. Within the parameter of your pasture, you will find all that you need. Come in obedience with a willing spirit. Come and be tended. Look to Me for all you need. Be not anxious, but trust in Me and I will lead you safely home. Drink freely of My living waters. Cool yourself in My shade. Lean upon Me, and I will uphold you. Trust Me when I shear you. I know what is best.
What I give to you is for a season. Do not cling to it, as it is but a gift from Me. There are different seasons and different gifts. To each season there is need of a gift. Trust the Giver of the gift as well as the Giver of the season. I see what lies before you and I know what you need to grow. Allow Me to choose, as I am He who leads you. The sheep do not know more than their Shepherd does.
