A man of God once shared a story with us years ago. He was ministering in a meeting in a particular city. After the ministration, a much older minister of God met him with a lamentation. According to the man; “I started ministry with so and so, but I have nothing to show for my labours.” He could not manage seasons correctly.

Friend, life is about times and seasons. Life is in phases, and men are in size. Understanding your current phase and managing transitions from phase to phase is a major requirement for a life of success and fulfilment (Ephesians 5:17). Truth is where God has been. Anointing is where God is. Revelation is where God is going. You would need this trio in order to navigate seasons.

You cannot make progress beyond your level of revelation (Galatians 2:2). While truth stabilises you, anointing equips you, and revelation transitions you. The revelation of what God is doing in your life per time will help you to partner with God correctly during transition. I learnt earlier in my walk with God that God does not tell you to do what is next on your plan, but what is next on His plan for you (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Transition season calls for focus. You cannot be looking here and there and be accurate with God (1 Kings 20:40). Elisha must maintain focus on Elijah and what God is doing for him to receive the double portion of Elijah’s spirit. It was a season of transition (2 Kings 2:9-14). When Peter woke up from sleep during Jesus’s Mount of transfiguration experience, he began to talk wrongly (Matthew 17:1-5).

Transition season requires sensitivity. Praying, “Lord, what will you have me do” is more important than praying, “Lord, do something.” God is always doing something, but what you must do to align with and maximize what God is doing is a critical matter to consider during transition (Acts 9:6).

Perhaps nothing is worse than a man doing the right thing at the wrong time. For Gehazi, it was not that collecting gifts from Naaman was wrong. But it was done at the wrong time (2 Kings 5:26). Gehazi, at the time, needed to be learning and receiving impartation for the next level of his divine calling. Unfortunately, he was busy looking for what to get (2 Kings 2:20-21). What about you? Do you know what you should be doing at this season of your life? Do you know what God is doing in your life now?
