I cannot stand the thought of you being lost. Not for a day or an hour. You are found in Me. I Am the shelter you’ve been searching for. Let Me set your feet on the path to your destiny.


At the beginning of every year, I seek God for a word for that year. I look at the Gregorian calendar, the Jewish calendar and the seasonal calendar in Ecclesiastes 3 because I think God wants you and I to know where we are. He doesn’t like it when you don’t know where you are:  

But the Lord called to the man, “Where are you?” – Genesis 3:9

God doesn’t ask that question because He doesn’t know where Adam is. He asks because Adam doesn’t know where Adam is, or how deep of trouble he’s gotten himself into.

Logistically speaking, God wants you to know where you’re at. Especially when it comes to seasons. He doesn’t hide the seasons of life from us. He wants us to know what season we’re in. That way, we can predict what season is next. 

If it’s summer, we know what comes after that. We know that if it’s fall, winter follows. Why? We’re supposed to gear up for the next season because there’s a timing to every purpose under heaven.

A time to be born, And a time to die;

A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;

A time to kill, And a time to heal;A time to break down, And a time to build up… – Ecclesiastes 3:2-3

When you look at the seasons of life Solomon noted, you should know what season you’re in and what to expect next. God wants you to be prepared, but what if you’re not? What if you’re living your life out of synch with His plan and purpose?

Well, that’s when life is tough and you know it’s tough because you’ll want to be single when you’re married. You’ll want kids when you don’t have any. You’ll be going to school when you should have a job and your relationships, finances and stress level will all show you’re out of timing.

Get into alignment for your Kingdom assignment. Go after Jesus in a way that puts Him in the center of your life. He will guide your steps and set you on the path home. Your Father is there. Where are you?
