Prophetic Word: In This Changing Season, Don’t Sleep Through Your Day of Opportunity

by | Jun 18, 2020 | Prophetic Insight

Our world is in a new and ever-changing season. As we come out of the time of quarantine due to COVID-19, we face new decisions, challenges and outcomes. Author and speaker Caleb Hyers points us to Scripture for advice:

“Know the importance of the season you’re in and a wise son you will be. But what a waste when an incompetent son sleeps through his day of opportunity! The lover of God is enriched beyond belief, but the evil man only curses his luck. The reputation of the righteous becomes a sweet memorial to him, while the wicked life only leaves a rotten stench” (Prov. 10:5-7, TPT) is the passage Hyers quotes on The Faith-Rest Life podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. He says, “It’s important that we know how to change seasons. …If we’re not able to change seasons, well, we’ll carry the unrest of yesterday into tomorrow. Nobody wants that. I don’t want that. I know you don’t want that either.”

Hyers points out, “We’re walking into the importance of the season; we’re walking out of understanding all of the importance surrounding it … because the kingdom is advancing with or without you. … The kingdom is advancing in times of lockdown. The kingdom of God is advancing in times of reopening, and it’s up to you and me to be wise and partner with that kingdom.'”

“Let me just call you up and wake you up today to say, ‘Listen, don’t sleep through your day of opportunity,” Hyers says. “There’s a great new day dawning around us. And we have a wonderful opportunity to partner with the kingdom and see heaven come to earth. … And so we have to take our take great pains really to evaluate the importance, what was important from the lockdown season, what’s going to be important to take with us, what’s going to be important to leave behind, what’s going to be important to grow in, what did we learn in this time?”
