His gifts to us

See also

He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding! [Dan. 4:35.] (Daniel 2:20, 21 AMP)

We have dates on the calendar for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter but does nature follow our calendar? Not usually, in fact almost everywhere, the actual change of seasons, begins before or after the date and it's different every year. Only God controls the times and seasons. He micromanages the colors of the leaves, when the winds blow them from the trees, the small buds of green as the air warms, and the full leaves that shade us during the months of highest temperature.

There are other times and seasons. Seasons of our soul. Sometimes we have joy giving peace to our faces. Other times things are quiet and a gentleness of life covers us. Sometimes we hurt and we have to pull in close to Jesus. God may not cause the hurt but He'll walk with us through it because He takes care of the times and seasons of our lives.

We've had Presidents in our country since George Washington. The Lord set each of them up to use with His hand. Presidents can be very controversial. But we should pray for them and for a quiet life where we can answer respectfully anyone who asks the reason for our hope inside. (1 Peter 3:15)

If we are wise or we have understanding it came from God. We can get it no where else. His word, His voice, His nudges are gifts.
