When the miracle of Jesus’ birth took place, the Angel of the Lord came to shepherds who watched their flocks by night and announced the miracle. Heaven had something to show, and it was shown to shepherds who were awake at night, watching their flocks. That angelic visitation came at a time when people ought to be sleeping, but the shepherds were awake. They were awake at a time when God had something to show.
Friend, I pray for you: in times and seasons when God has something to show you, may you be awake and sensitive to what God has to show. May your eyes be open at times when God opens the doors you have been craving to walk into; may you speak rightly when the destiny helpers that heaven sent to you come your way; may you be sensitive to know the hour of your divine visitation; may you be awake when your ‘angel’ comes.
The shepherds were not more important than the teachers of the law, they were not more important than the priests and prophets, but they were awake, and God favoured them to see what others didn’t see. The only thing they did right was to be awake. Sometimes, the only difference between excellence and failure is sensitivity and availability at the time of your visitation. Opportunities often visit the well positioned.
Hear me as I hear the Lord: in the day of your opportunity, you will be well positioned. In the time of your lifting, you will be well positioned and ready to be lifted. In the day of your divine announcement, you will be well positioned for the recognition that would follow. In the day of the unveiling of your greatness, you will be well positioned and in alignment with heaven.
Ask God to keep you awake and sensitive in the time of your visitation. Ask God to position you well in the day of your opportunity.
