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 – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
