Here is what we know about what’s next

1. There will be blessings in the next season

“The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.” Psalms‬ 145:9‬ NIV‬‬

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” Psalms‬

34:8‬ NIV‬‬

““Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be

opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one

who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew‬ 7:7-8‬ NIV‬‬

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your

heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” Deuteronomy‬ 6:4-5‬ NIV‬‬

““These are the commands, decrees, and regulations that the Lord your God commanded

me to teach you. You must obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy, and

you and your children and grandchildren must fear the Lord your God as long as you live. If

you obey all his decrees and commands, you will enjoy a long life. Listen closely, Israel, and

be careful to obey. Then all will go well with you, and you will have many children in the

land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised

you.” Deuteronomy‬ 6:1-3‬ NLT‬‬

“For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and

deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and

fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; a land where bread will not be scarce and you

will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills.”

Deuteronomy‬ 8:7-9‬ NIV‬‬

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you

everything you need.” Matthew‬ 6:33‬ NLT‬‬

2. There will be challenges in the next season

““In this world you will have trouble ...”” John‬ 16:33‬ NIV‬‬

““I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will

have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”” John‬ 16:33‬ NIV‬‬

3. Some of our biggest blessings will come from our

greatest challenges

“Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and

blossom blossom with spring crocuses. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and

joy! The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount

Carmel or the plain of Sharon. There the Lord will display his glory, the splendor of our

God.” Isaiah‬ 35:1-2‬ NLT‬‬
