As autumn approaches, the leaves on the trees begin to change colour. Then, in a little while, in the gentle breeze, individual leaves fall off of the branches and gently float down to the ground. The whole countryside takes on a completely different character as greens give way to golden browns and reds, and a completely different beauty is seen. This is the natural order of things, designed and ordained by God. The falling of the leaves from the trees does not hurt or harm the tree, but shows that the tree is alive and living according to the season.
As it is with the trees, so it is with your life. A season is approaching where an entirely different beauty will be displayed in you. This is a season where the gentle breeze of the Holy Spirit will cause things to drop from your life. The things of yesterday that you do not need for tomorrow will gently fall away from you, proving that you are indeed in the season that God has ordained.
Yield to the wind of the Spirit and do not fret. This is a painless exercise, and the supernatural order of things which will allow and enable greater growth and fruitfulness. Do not try and hold onto the things that are due to fall. Yield to the wind of the Spirit.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up, and instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up, and it will be a memorial to the LORD, for an everlasting sign which will not be cut off.
