Where are the prophets of The LORD who will lead and mentor others to fit in their shoes and outgrow them?
Where are those who will come down into the trenches with the people and work alongside of them?
Are they all getting caught up in numbers, as to how many followers they have, and how much money they can bring in?
Or can they limit their numbers to fewer, and really pour into a few at a time, so the rising voices will have the leadership they need?
We desperately need humble, down in the trench-prophets, not concerned with prosperity and wealth, but who feel the pain of the suffering and bring them hope.
We need leaders who will steward the anointing they have and pass it onto others, not keep it all for their own glory.
Let us continuously wear the coat of humility, realizing that what we carry is only what God has entrusted us with.
One day we will have to account for what we did with the Anointing and Gifts we were given, the impartations we received and the sheep we were entrusted with.
May we be found worthy of every single thing we carried for Christ, and be able to give everything back to Him plus interest.
May we be able to show Him we were good stewards, we raised up more disciples to be like Him, because we were like Him.
Samuel had a school of prophets. He trained them and showed them how to prophesy, lead, speak and carry a heavy responsibility.
Samuel was there with them, and the company of prophets would stop and prophesy in different places, releasing The Word of The LORD.
I am sure he didn’t live for himself, or distance himself away where he was untouchable and unreachable.
He didn’t gather as many around him as he could, so he could live in wealth. He gave of himself and poured out into others. God trusted him to raise up more prophets like him.
This world needs more Samuels right now. May we be one of them.
“And Samuel grew and The LORD was with him and He did not let any of His words fall to the ground, and all Israel from Dan even to Beer-Sheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of The LORD,” 1 Samuel 3:18-19.
