I heard the Lord say, "Don't blink!"
That's a word for us all in this season. I prayed through this prophetic utterance on my Mornings with the Holy Spirit broadcast, which you can find here.
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 suddenly 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:
Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the desert and came to the mountain of God, to Horeb. The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush, and he looked, and the bush burned with fire, but the bush was not consumed. So Moses said, "I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt."
When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him from out of the midst of the bush and said, "Moses, Moses."
And he said, "Here am I."
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!
