I heard the Lord say, “I am raising up children and adorning them with My power. They will release My glory and others will be impacted by what they carry. There is no age restriction for those I use in My army. I look at the heart and use those that are pure in heart and those who are obedient to My leading. Children will be given a greater platform in this hour to release My words, My love and My power. They will draw others to Me and will teach others My ways. They will carry a message that will speak directly to the hearts of people. Their hearts are aligned with Mine and they put their trust in Me. They have faith to see the impossible be made possible and they know who I am. They have eyes to see with heavenly perspective and to see into the heavenly realm. Many children will have heavenly encounters and I am sending My angels to them. Do not limit the children that I am raising up but instead listen to them at this time. Nurture them and make room for them and their gifts. They will cut through religious systems of the day as they walk in love and power. They will be agents of change and reformation. These children will carry a fragrance and sound of heaven and My Spirit will move through them. They are motivated and moved by love for others and they walk in humility. They don’t look for approval from man but only look to Me. These children will hear My voice with clarity as they are not distracted by things of the world. My glory will be seen as they release worship to Me.”
Children have a humility an openness to receive and be taught. They are free from pride and ambition. Here are some passages where Jesus spoke about children –
Matthew 18:2-4 (NASB) - And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Luke 18:15-17(NASB) - And they were bringing even their babies to Him so that He would touch them, but when the disciples saw it, they began rebuking them. But Jesus called for them, saying, “Permit the children to come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.”
I believe the Lord is asking us to give children a platform to use their gifts and be used by God. He wants us to allow children to use their gifts to impact others and advance His kingdom. I personally have seen children of various ages, including my own children, moving in the gifts of the Spirit. In these last days the Lord is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh which means people of all ages, including children. Joel 2:28a (ISV) - Then it will come about at a later time that I will pour out my Spirit on every person. God is raising children up to be agents of change in this hour and to impact people who would otherwise be closed off to the message they will bring and the presence of the Lord they carry. They will be used powerfully as they walk in humility, have great faith and purity of heart. The Spirit will move through them and they will bring glory to the Lord.
Praise God for raising children up for such a time as this to impact their world for His glory!
