Luke 10:1, 2  The Lord now chose seventy-two other disciples and sent them ahead in pairs to all the towns and places he planned to visit. These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” (NLT)

Each season knows its own urgency. There is a unique priority. The order of operations is adjusted accordingly. What season are you in? What demands your attention at this moment? What is your best next step? How do you manage the rhythm of planning and review?

Jesus knew the timeline between where he stood on his way to Jerusalem and the cross (9:51). He was making his last walk through those villages and towns. He would not come back until he had finished what he had come to complete. Harvest season had fully arrived. The time for decision had come. The moment of all moments was at hand.

Like crops that had to be gathered before the rains, people everywhere along the way needed to know the Good News of the Kingdom of God. John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach, loved to tell his players, “Be quick, but don’t hurry.” It sounds like he learned this from Jesus. 

Again, what season are you in? 

Is this a season of education and training in preparation for new opportunities?

Is this a season of prioritization and planning for significant projects?

Is this a season of harvest where multiplied results are received and celebrated?

Is this a season of evaluation and reorganization?

The more clearly we can identify the season, the more productive and effective we can live within it. 

Please know if nothing has changed substantially in a long, long time, this may not be a season. This may be a rut. 

Who do you need to help you assess your season? Consider these four questions from Tom Paterson:

1. What’s Right? (Optimize it)
2. What’s Wrong? (Fix it)
3. What’s Confused? (Clarify it)
4. What’s Missing? (Add it)

As Paterson taught so many in different fields of endeavor, perspective comes before planning. You have to know where you stand before you determine your best next steps.

I will assess my season so that I can take my best next steps.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
