1 To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11 He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I DECREE THAT THE GRACE TO FOLLOW GOD PATIENTLY SHALL REST UPON YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
In life, many things are tied to divine time and season (Ecclesiastes 3:1). They depend on processes. A process is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. Our generation does not have respect for time and season; they have no regard for process and procedure. They prefer time on the fast lane and the microwave mentality. We want the product; we don’t want the process. We want the baby; we don’t want pregnancy. We want the crops; we don’t want to plant, cultivate and harvest. As someone put it, “You can microwave food, you can’t microwave a destiny into manifestation. You must respect the process!

It is not possible to experience only the pleasant sides of life without the unpleasant. If anyone tells you that once you give your life to Jesus, challenges of life will disappear, the person is a liar. The Bible says that those who will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3:12). Apostle Paul also made a profound statement in Philippians 1:29, “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him but also to suffer for his sake.” It is unfortunate that many believers do not want to suffer for Christ’s sake nor experience persecution. They want life on the fast lane and on the rosy side.
Joseph respected the divine process. He suffered persecution. When he had dreams from God that pointed to greatness in his future, he did not know that he would pass through trials and travails. That is the process. His brothers sold him as a slave. He lived as a servant in Potiphar’s house and did a menial job. Potiphar’s wife lied against him. He was imprisoned. From prison, he became a prime minister. Joseph respected the process. He cooperated with God and things turn around for good for him.
Are you a microwave Christian? Do you believe only in life on a fast lane and have no regard for process? You should have a rethink and learn from Joseph. There is a season and a time for every matter under heaven. Be patient and cooperate with God. Follow his leading and timing. It shall be well with you, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me the grace and understanding to walk with You, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, help me to walk blameless before You, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, let Your will be done in my life, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, grant me the patience to follow Your timing, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive the grace to suffer for Christ’s sake, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, grant me the spirit of endurance, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall cooperate with God in all areas of my life, in the name of Jesus.
Salvation Prayer: To experience the love and the many folds of God’s blessing there’s a need to be part of him by being born again. If you are ready to be part of this noble family kindly pray this prayer with me:
Lord Jesus, I believe you are the son of God who paid the price for my sins on the cross of Calvary, I believe you are risen and defeated in death. I repent from everything that’s dishonoring to your name, I receive you as my lord and personal saviour and I come into eternal life. Amen. Thank you, Lord, for saving me.
