The Grinding Season
The grinding season is a busy season. In this season, you may be hearing yourself saying, “I don’t have enough time in a day to get everything done!” The truth is, you do have time. You may be thinking, “There’s so many things to learn about the prophetic ministry” or “so much of the Bible to read” or “too many people to schedule time to meet with.”
In this season, the key to success and to accomplishing much in this particular season is seeking God for direction the moment your feet hit the floor. It’s important to plow through your priorities when your work day begins. Don’t allow your busyness to distract you and to take your focus away from your relationship with God.
Attacking your priorities first will also help alleviate undue stress. You’ll be amazed at how much you get accomplished when you dedicate your day to God.
Burn out is a sign that you’re trusting too much in your own capacity to operate in the prophetic ministry. Pace yourself and your tasks. Keep in mind that God does not need you to be busy, He needs you to be productive. Breathe. Pray. Then be excellent for God.
In this season, recognize what needs to get done, write things down, and press through with the strength God gives you, His provision and divine grace. Rely on the Holy Spirit to lead and help you get through the grinding season.
The Tests & Trials Season
If you’re going through some challenging times in this season, know that God is with you right there in the midst of it all. You may be facing resistance or conflict in the ministry or you may be facing unfair judgment or persecution. You are doing the work of God and you are expected to be met with opposition.
God is in control. God is the One who will vindicate you. It may be hard when you’re in the middle of the season, but look back at the times when God made you victorious. You might not even understand what you’re going through or why, but in the past, you experienced how God revealed His greater purposes. But I want to encourage you that God knows, and in due time, all will be revealed. Again, seasons are temporary.
Maybe God is revealing Himself as your Comforter, your Strong Tower, or your Present Help. God can also give you strength and wisdom. During these seasons, you will experience your relationship with God strengthened. In this hard season, fix your thoughts on heavenly things, not on things on the earth. The Apostle Paul said, “For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure” (2 Cor. 4:17).
