Meat in Due SeasonPrint This Post
“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?” (Matthew 24:45).
Solomon said, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” And for every season, there is a supply given to us from God to sustain us and see that we make it through to the next season.
The secret of success in any season of life, is to find out what God is doing – and get in on it with Him. This is what Zechariah meant when he said, “Ask rain from the LORD in the season of the spring rain” (Zec.10:1).
So, find out what season you are in – waiting, flying, running, or walking – and then ask the Lord for “meat in due season.” Ask Him to supply you with whatever it is you need to be sustained through that season unto the next. He will answer that prayer.
Think about it — if He cares for bugs, which are here today, and gone tomorrow — won’t He care even more so for you? Trust Him fully and He will satidfy you completely.
Jesus said to His disciples on one occasion when he had not eaten anything for awhile – “I have meat to eat that you know nothing about.” (John 4:32). Then, to help them understand, He added, “My meat is to do the will of Him, and to finish His work”(vs.34).
The same is true for you and me. We will find “meat to eat” that others know nothing about, if we will give ourselves fully to doing God’s will, and staying the course until His work is finished.
Receive the meat which the Lord gives you for the season you are in right now.
If it is a waiting season, then fully intertwine your life with the Lord and exchange strength with Him. Only then will you be able to fly like an eagle, run with horses, and walk among giants.
