Scripture: Jeremiah 1:7-10
What does God expect of us in the end-times when we know that the prophetic is one of the major aspects of what God does? When we operate in the true prophetic, we are His voice to people. In Jeremiah 1:7, we first see that our age does not make a difference. The issue is not age but that we are called to represent the King. Looking at Caleb and Joshua makes it clear – at 85 years old they were as strong as they were at 40 and they asked God for the mountain where the giants were and God gave it to Caleb. Age is not an issue because all things are possible to him who believes. The second issue is that God does not tolerate fear, “‘Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,’ says the Lord.” Fear has no place when it comes to our witness, our testimony and what we feel God wants us to say. We have to trust Him that we are going to say what we need to say and He will take care of the rest. Then the Lord said, “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.” When God puts a prophetic word in our mouth, we have the authority not only to subdue kingdoms, but to bring destruction to those people who are attempting to destroy our harvest field. We need to walk so closely with the Spirit to hear His direction on when and how to pray, whether it will be to build and to plant or to destroy and throw down. We cannot let fear stop us from speaking the Word of the Lord and praying the words He wants us to pray.
