WISDOM FOR 2021/PROPHECY
A Prophecy: Season of Unprecedented Opportunities
There are divine opportunities all around us. Sometimes, we just don’t see them. But in this season, God is going to make it plain to those who have a heart to follow His generous Spirit.
I heard the Lord say:
“This is a season of unprecedented opportunities—a season of opportunities that eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor has entered into the heart of man. I love you and I will cause you to prosper in the midst of a whirlwind. I will cause you to rise up, even when the world is trying to bring you down.
“I will give you eyes to see. I will give you ears your hear. Even things that were right under your nose that you could not see before, I will illuminate them to you. And you will see and you will seize. You will see and you will seize. You will hear and you will know.
“And I am handing out keys to doors of opportunity and I’m giving you the power to lift up windows of opportunity to go through to places that you’ve not been before.”
I decree in Jesus in name, this is a season of unprecedented opportunity! The risk averse will release great faith. Prayer bowls are tipping over and prophecies are being fulfilled in this season.
Yes, the enemy can bring false opportunities but you are not going to fall for it because you will remember the prophecies and the prayers. You will discern. You will get confirmation in Scripture. Wise council will back you up. You’ll have peace that passes all understanding.
All you need to know now is how to tap into the divine opportunities that come your way.
1. Prepare now!
If you believed you were going to run into the opportunity of a lifetime this year, what would you do? Prepare now. It’s been said opportunity comes to those who are prepared. That’s true, but it’s also true that opportunity comes to people who are not prepared but should have been. The unprepared cannot step into the opportunity. Ask the Lord what He wants you to study, how He wants you to pray and otherwise prepare yourself for what’s to come.
2. Look for the opportunities.
People who are not present in the moment often regret their past. Put another way, if you are not paying attention you could miss an opportunity. Have you ever been at a stop light and got caught up in your smartphone so long that by the time you looked up the light was already yellow again? You missed the green light because you weren’t paying attention. Opportunities are all around us, but it is possible to miss them because you aren’t looking for them.
3. Be open to new possibilities.
Sometimes opportunity comes in unrecognizable packages. Don’t be too quick to dismiss something that’s outside your comfort zone or doesn’t look like what you imagined. In fact, be careful not to discount an opportunity that’s before you. Pray about it before you move past it.
4. Keep a positive mindset.
Faith is not negative. While you are waiting on the opportunity that will surely come, keep a positive outlook. Don’t get jealous of your friends—or even strangers—who are walking through their doors of opportunity. Tell yourself you are next and you are able. Indeed, you are well able to take the mountain!
5. Grab the opportunity.
You may feel like you’ve been passed up for opportunity after opportunity, but more opportunities are going to pass in front of you. When you see them—because you are looking for them—grab them. Take advantage of them. Seize the opportunity. When it’s divine, don’t delay.
Ultimately, you may have to change some of your mindsets to see the opportunity under your nose. You may have to say no to wrong things so you can say yes to the right things. Or you may have to stop saying no when you should be saying yes. Take more risks. Meet more people. Be more curious. Stop thinking about the past. Don’t underestimate what God can do through you. Dream wild.
This Prophetic Word Will Open Your Eyes Wide
I heard the Lord say, “Don’t blink!”
Let me break this down for you, though.
Blink means to look with half-shut eyes. Blink means to look with too little concern. Blink means to deny recognition. Don’t blink!
Things are going to happen in this season in the blink of an eye—in an instant. We’re in the midst of sudden moments—a season of unprecedented opportunities. Don’t blink!
If you blink, you could miss your kairos moment. If you blink you could miss the open door standing before you. If you blink you could miss seeing what God is doing. Don’t blink!
Moses Didn’t Blink
If Moses had blinked, he would have missed the burning bush. It was only when he stopped to look that God spoke to him. I want you to see this in Exodus 3:1-4:
“One day Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law, Jethro, the priest of Midian. He led the flock far into the wilderness and came to Sinai, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up. “This is amazing,” Moses said to himself. “Why isn’t that bush burning up? I must go see it.” WISDOM FOR 2021/PROPHECY
“When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, ‘Moses! Moses!’
“Here I am!” Moses replied.
Catch that: Moses was calling God. Moses could have missed his calling. He didn’t blink, rather he kept his eyes and ears wide open and God used him to liberate a nation. Don’t blink!
The Enemy Isn’t Blinking
The enemy is on high alert. Don’t blink!
Peter the apostle put it this way: “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.”
Don’t blink! If you get lazy in the spirit, the enemy can get an advantage over you. Now is the time to cultivate a spiritual awareness that makes you more sensitive to God’s Spirit. When you are more sensitive to God’s Spirit, you will better discern the enemy sneaking up from behind you. You won’t get blindsided if you don’t blink.
