And that's the way life is for humans - it is simply living through a series of continuing seasons - AND - having the wisdom to change wardrobes when the season changes. I'm not talking about shoes and clothes. I'm talking about attitude and perspective.
The ONE TRUTH about seasons is that they CHANGE - and the wise wife wears the wardrobe that will get her through the season she is in.
- You may be in a season of financial challenge - put on a wardrobe of faith that God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. He will. He will. So take off the wardrobe of worry and fear and put on the wardrobe of a woman of faith.
- You may be in a season of disappointment in your husband - put on a wardrobe of mercy because the merciful will be shown mercy. Take off the wardrobe of judgment and anger. You will need mercy at some season in your future. Trust me, you will.
- You may be in a season of feeling spiritually dry and discouraged - put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Physically, actually, OPEN YOUR MOUTH and praise God for something.
- You may be in a season of being disappointed in yourself, or feeling guilty and accused. Seriously? Put on the belt of truth and breastplate of righteousness and tell that accuser that there is NO CONDEMNATION to those who are in Christ Jesus. Go ahead. Say it. Out loud. "I am a child of God. There is NOTHING the Blood Of Jesus cannot cleanse." (Didja say it? OK. I"ll wait.)
How to know which wardrobe you should be wearing? It takes being a woman of prayer, who is in tune with the Holy Spirit, to know and recognize the wind of changing seasons before they even arrive. If you don't pray, there's nothing more to say. Pray. Pray. Pray. Not to ask for anything but to know the will of God. Try it.
