I want to ask you a question.
In the season you currently in, are you maximizing it for God?
Are you giving it a 100%?
Young man, young women, God wants you to maximize the
season you are in.
Stop thinking of singleness as a type of “transit” because it’s not.
God expects growth!
Like the men who were given talents to trade with and increase,
God expects the same. (Matthew 25:14-30)
The man who hid his talent was not the hero.
He was not rewarded for being wise.
Instead, he was scolded and rebuked!
Life doesn’t start when you get married. It starts now!
Whether you are married or single the expectation is still the same,
“maximize the season you are in.”
I have entitled this post “A season for God” because I believe
we should be bringing Him glory in
whatever season we are in.
If single, if married, bring Him glory by living the life He has
for you! Enjoy it, thank Him for it!
Maximize the season you are in.
Priscilla and Aquilla (married)
Paul met this amazing couple when he went to Corinth (Acts 18:2)
They were tentmakers like Paul.
This couple opened up their home to Paul (Acts 18:3)
There were many couples in Paul’s time but the Word mentions
Priscilla and Aquilla!
They were maximizing the season they were in!
“Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an
eloquent man and mighty in
the Scriptures, came to Ephesus.
This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and
being fervent in spirit, he spoke and
taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only
the baptism of John.
So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue.
When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside
and explained to him the way of
the God more accurately. “ (emphasis mine)
Aquila and Priscilla had embraced the season they were in.
As a couple they were advancing the gospel. They were living
out what God called them to.
“Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers
in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in purity.
Till I come, give attention to the reading, to exhortation, to
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by
prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. “
1 Timothy 4:12-14
It is clear from reading Paul’s journeying that Timothy was very
important to him. Timothy was being mentored by Paul.
Timothy was fearless and his love for
God was very evident. He might of being a pastor!
Whatever the case, Timothy maximized the season he was in.
He played a key part in the spread of the gospel.
He was totally devoted to God. He didn’t hold anything back!
He threw himself into what God had called him to do. He was
on fire for God.
I shared these two stories so you could understand what I am
Whether single or married live for God.
Seek Him and His will.
If you are single I can’t emphasis enough how important it is
to get started with life.
God has so much in store for you right now!
Take your worry, take your concern and give them to God
because He really does care how you feel. He wants the best for you.
As I close will you join me in making a decision to make this
season we are in a season for God?
Bless you friends!
