The kingdom mobility enjoyed by the church in the first century was far beyond any supernatural navigation found anywhere in the earth today.
The Scriptures were written to an agricultural people who understood the ebb and flow of seasonal living. They understood the importance of spending appropriate energy in the correct season. By contrast, our modern industrial societies live by the clock and 24-7 productivity, not by seasons. Our “switch” is always turned on, unwisely so. What might be positive for making widgets, doesn’t translate positively into the kingdom of God. Being seasonally in tune with Him is critical for mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
A few months ago I passed through the tiny community of Between, Ga. With a population of only 148, the place is not much to write home about. (And besides, it doesn't even have its own zip code). The town got its name because it's halfway between Atlanta and Athens, Ga. But as I passed the local convenience store I couldn't help but imagine the strange reactions I'd get if I lived there.
