SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK: JOB 33:14-18
It is the season to receive God’s revelation in the night watches “For God speaks once,
and even twice, yet no one notices it [including you, Job]. In a dream, a vision of the night [one may hear God’s voice], when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed.”
Kislev is the ninth month of the Hebrew year (19 Nov-17 Dec) and is associated with the Hebrew letter ‘Samekh’ which picture a circle or repeating cycle. Words associated with Samekh are ‘to turn’ or ‘come full circle’. So in this season God wants to give you a second chance to confront and deal with things that defeated you in the last season. It is a season to enter into a whole new cycle. Missed opportunities can come back around again and that also means old enemies can come back again also. So be on guard this season.
This is also a season to break out of old cycles that have held you in captivity! It is a season of light shining in the darkness because Hanukkah falls in Kislev (12-19 Dec). Last season was the time of the flood, so this is the time of the rainbow. Examine what you have warred through in the past year to come into a place of peace. God makes a covenant with us so that we will not have to war with those things again. There are certain things every year that you want to make a spiritual locater and say, “I am not going through that again.”
In this season, even in the midst of warfare, you will have peace. Don’t get tangled up and get out of your abiding place. ‘Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel answered, “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him. “It is He who changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and [greater] knowledge to those who have understanding! “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.”’
This is the season to gain new awareness of your dreams. Psalms 127:2, “It is vain for you to rise early, to retire late, to eat the bread of anxious labours-for He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep.” God wants to bless you even while you are sleeping!
