The importance of establishing a lookout

As we’re about to enter a new year and especially in times like these, we need a secure place that serves as a lookout where we will be able to discern the seasons, the warnings, and our opportunities. We should not be ignorant about the times we’re living in or the prophecies that are coming into fulfillment in this season and the ones to come. Unto the children of God is given to know the hidden things. (Jeremiah 33:3)

For the Lord has said to me,“Go, post a lookout;let him report what he sees.


1.A careful looking or watching for any object or event.

2. The place from which such observation is made.

3. A person engaged in watching.

Isaiah 21:6

What should we take to the lookout ?

Questions, of course! We are not supposed to live in fear and insecurity but in purpose and faith.

This year my prayer journal became my place of keeping watch to receive answers, to intercede, find consoling, strength, and revelation. Some of the warnings and revelations I wrote down were personal and some for the body of Christ. My prayer journal served as a register for my answers and findings during prayer. It was also an altar where I received daily and future strategies.

What should we be on the lookout for?

Habakkuk 2:1

I will stand at my guard postand station myself on the lookout tower.I will watch to see what He will say to meand what I should reply about my complaint.

Firstly, we should be looking out for the evil schemes of the enemy and attacks. The prophet Habakkuk called upon the name of the Lord as his strong tower to seek answers for the situation the land faced. Habakkuk asks the Lord why evildoers are going unpunished, and the answers God provided surprised him.

Secondly, we are looking out and waiting for the answers to our prayers, opportunities, or strategies God wants to reveal to us.

A watch full man can dismantle the weapons of the enemy .

Get ready for the next battle before it rises against you.
