Pastor Casey begins by just sharing about life, a conversation as he says. Then he moves on to the whole thought process of change, times and seasons, Change- change is a process. People don’t change but God changes people. Ecclesiastes 3:1″ To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” We must recognize the changing of seasons.
In Joshua 5:10-15, we see the people of Israel were in for quite a change of times and seasons. The manna ceased! They had been eating manna for forty years-no plowing, planting working or watering, just pick it up and eat. God provided everything they needed with only obedience required on their part. Now, they entered a new place, a fruitful land, where they had the responsibility of taking care of the land in order to see a harvest. God still provided all they needed, but they had to put forth work, effort, fight.
Our purpose is beyond eating manna. We must move into the things of God- be maturing, living by faith, not sight. Listen to today’s message and be encouraged regardless of which season you find yourself in.
