Our breakthroughs, freedom, change, power and authority are all found in earnest prayer, especially Midnight Hour Prayer! This is the time to lock the day that is going and unlock the day that is coming. It is a ‘kairos moment’ when supernatural encounters (John 4:24; Romans 8:14; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16) are triggered in order to activate supernatural provision and breakthroughs.
I Chronicles 12:32 speaks of the sons of Issachar who had the understanding of the times to KNOW… The Hebrew used is ‘yada’ which means to perceive and see, find out and discern. So we can break into the realm of the spirit and see what the LORD is on with and then begin to make declarations in the natural for its manifestation. This means interrupting chronos time with kairos time (Isaiah 55:11).
Chronos and kairos are different. Chronos is the time on your wrist watch, time on the move, passing from present to future and so becoming past. Kairos, on the other hand, is qualitative rather than quantitative. It is time as a moment, a significant occasion, and of immeasurable quality. In the New Testament, kairos is God’s time, it is real time – it is the eternal now. Chronos is fact and kairos is truth! When Jesus stepped into time to proclaim the Kingdom of God among us, He came to show us in chronos the reality of kairos.
God is faithful no matter how difficult our circumstances. It is not enough to believe Him as the Alpha if we cannot believe Him as the Omega. He has our best interests at heart. If He spoke to us about this special season, He will surely be good on His promise. Therefore, let these midnight prayers pave the way into our promised land. Psalm 77:19: ‘Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters – a pathway no one knew was there.’ This helps us to understand that He has already made the way and we only await its revelation, which is why these Midnight Hour Prayers are crucial, for revelation only comes through prayer. Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but happy is he who keeps the law. Proverbs 29:18.
