Do not despise silent seasons. You see just like we take tests and exams, that's the same way God places tests and exams in our lives. And we must pass these tests and exams to move to the next level. The higher the level, the more challenging the tests.
While I have learnt to be a diligent student, and have even studied on scholarship my entire life (more of God's grace than my efforts) I have also learnt that to fulfill God's plans we must also be diligent. You can not just keep wishing and hoping for things to happen. The book of proverbs tells us poverty will fall the lazy ones. To get to that level of extra ordinary, you must be willing to put in extra. To get to the level of outstanding, you must be ready to stand alone sometimes. You must be willing to do what others are not willing to do.
In the past, I used to detest silent seasons because it would be as though God has just abandoned me. But now I embrace silent seasons knowing that it will lead to the next level. Are you willing to put in the work? There must be diligence, persistence, and consistency.
Are you going through a silent season? Why don't you quit complaining and go to work. Remember that for every test or exam a person fails, they will have to repeat. Put in the extra, wake up to pray, study your Bible, read books, teach Sunday school, encourage and pray for others going through a hard time. Wake up and go to work early, work as unto to the lord, be diligent where you are at the moment. Stop waiting on God to give you a bigger opportunity while he is waiting to see if you have learnt to be faithful where you are. Put in the work and enjoy the benefits later. Remember quitting is not an option! Remember God is always with you even in the silent seasons.
