Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 16:3 (KJV); And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
We are all excited about defining SEASONS in this life: seasons of increase, seasons for elevation and seasons for spreading forth. But not many understand their TIMES.
They rejoice in the anticipation of SEASONS but are indifferent to the convictions of TIMES.
As a child of God, you ought to know your TIMES!
Even the enemy can discern seasons but he cannot discern your times of access because that is a heavenly affair.
For example, he sensed the season when the Messiah was born but he did not know the exact time. His solution was to kill every child of the age of two and below (Matthew 2:7-16).
The man at the pool of Bethesda knew the season when the angel stirred the water but he always missed the time! (John 5:1-8). As such, someone always got in before him and was healed.
In our theme scripture, Christ reminds us of the need to understand TIMES and their SIGNS.
David needed the sons of Issachar. The Bible says they had an understanding of TIMES to know what Israel ought to do (1 Chronicles 12:32).
It is good to know the SEASONS but it is MOST IMPORTANT that in the season, you know your TIMES because it is the understanding of times that gives you access to the graces released in any season. Hallelujah!

As a child of God, you ought to know your times; it is the understanding of TIMES that gives you access to the graces released in any SEASON.
PRAYER: Father, I am most grateful for this Word. This divine wisdom positions me perfectly in accordance to the time of the Spirit. I am never outside the divine calender because I understand my times. I know what I ought to do at all the critical points of my life because this knowledge rests in me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
