Galatians 6:9 AMPC
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
The God who has given time to humanity as an expression of His mercy has made it known to all that one of His greatest desires is to see His children live in what is known as the appointed time or the Kairos moment. Kairos is an appointed time or a due season, measured inopportune moments that transcend and redeem time when we persevere! Tonight we will discover and uncover the temptations that we all must overcome in order not to get stuck in time and experience your Kairos moment! (Due Season).
Overcoming the temptation to get stuck in time: Walking into your Due Season.

#1. Overcome the temptation to share your dream with people who lack vision. They will become jealous and hate you for it!
Dream - a picture of what God has promised. It is personal and limited. Dreams are given to inspire people and gives time meaning!
Vision - an impartation of the end from the beginning, revealing why and how God will accomplish what He has promised and our unique part that we play the benefits everyone!
Vision is corporate. It reveals the why and the how God will accomplish what He promised.
Vision is given to unite people and make hard times bearable and good times lasting!
Read Genesis 37:23-28 NLT
#2. Overcome the temptation to become bitter (aged anger) when people who are supposed to love you sell you out.

Read Genesis 39:1-5 AMPC
#3 Overcome the temptation to assess your situation from the world’s point of view instead of through the eyes of God!
Remember that favor is more valuable than money, and God can move faster and accomplish more with favor that you can with finances!
Read Genesis 39:7-13 AMPC
#4. Overcome the temptation to own what you have been given stewardship over.
Resist the trap of entitlement! Entitlement causes a person to justify their lusts because of what they have suffered or endured.
Read Genesis 39:19-23 AMPC

Imprisonment - identifying with your limitations stunts growth and stifles God’s ability to create unlimited possibilities in limited spaces.
Read Genesis 40:1-8 AMPC
#6. Overcome the temptation to become too self-absorbed with your present unfortunate situation that you lack the spiritual sensitivity to realize that God is setting you up!

Having the spiritual maturity to serve others even when it looks like it will never benefit you, allows God to supernaturally reposition you using the very time you thought was wasted!
