EVERY season in a person’s life is filled with good and bad, this should be no surprise to the one experiencing their season, because they were the one’s responsible for planting the seeds via words and action that has produced whatever it is that they are experiencing.
The word season comes from the Latin word ‘satio’ which literally means ‘a time to sow’.
This is important to note because most believers are of the view that ‘their season’ is a time to receive only things that are good.
However, based on the understanding of the etymology of the word season, which literally means a time to sow, this suggests that whatever season we’re in it is a direct result of the seeds (words and actions) that we’ve planted or sown in our previous seasons.
Therefore, to guarantee ourselves seasons of good or plenty or whatever season we desire, it is a must that we begin sowing or planting in our present seasons as of now, what we desire to see in our future seasons. it is important to note that no season is by chance, accident or luck, but by carefully planted seeds knowingly or unknowingly in our past seasons that has brought fort the harvest that we see today. King Solomon said, “To everything there is a time and season (a time to sow) to every purpose under the sun (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Basically Solomon is saying that everything that exist, there was a period in time the seed/s of it were planted to bring about its existence to fulfill it purpose for its existence for that particular season. In verse two of this same scripture, King Solomon made a profound statement as it relates to seasons when he said, “There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which was planted. Bottom line, life gives purpose and death brings and end to that purpose. This process is considered the cycle of all seasons.
Again, your words and actions of hate will no doubt produce a season of hate. Your words and action of love will no doubt produce a season of love. For every season that you find yourself in, sow the opposite of what you dislike in that particular season, so that you can look forward with confidence to a season that you desire!
So the bottom line here folks is simply this, the word “season” is just a condensed form of the process of sowing and reaping. Your seasons are guaranteed based on what you sow today; therefore consider greatly the motive behind whatever it is that you are sowing, because your next season will see to it that it comes to fruition.
