Recently I heard the Lord say, “The children will teach you”. Instantly I was reminded of many things the Lord has spoken to me regarding children for this new era, a mighty move of God through the children, the place of childlike faith and humility, and a move of His Spirit through the children could offend if hearts aren’t positioned in humility.
As the Lord spoke these words recently, I was surrounded by this strong sense of the Lord saying, “PAY ATTENTION TO THE CHILDREN”.
I had heard the Lord say this to me before in words I have released and when He spoke it again recently, I was surrounded by such a deep sense that He is releasing and will continue to release a deeper revelation of childlike faith, deep trust, and wonder to many, through children right now.
There are some life-changing encounters with the Lord and His voice for many right now that are going to come through paying attention to the children.
“At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children;” – Matthew 11:25 (English Standard Version)
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14 – ESV)
“Jesus overheard them and said, “I want little children to come to me, so never interfere with them when they want to come, for heaven’s kingdom realm is composed of beloved ones like these! Listen to this truth: No one will enter the kingdom realm of heaven unless he becomes like one of these!” Then he laid his hands on each of them and went on his way.” (Matthew 19:14 – TPT)
I began to see many encountering the Lord through paying attention to the children and the Holy Spirit speaking through the mouths of babes. There are lessons, keys, impartations, and moments of encounter with the Lord that are taking place and will continue to take place for many through watching and paying attention to the children.
The Lord showed me that there are going to be significant prophetic words that are going to come out of the mouths of babes for many right now that are going to give many clearer direction and clarity in what the Lord is saying. The Lord is going to astound and confound by His voice and wisdom that will flow through the mouths of babes. It’s important to PAY ATTENTION.
The Lord showed me that there is going to be a ‘rearranging’ of PACE for many that are going to take place through paying attention to the children.
The Lord is going to release such a deep revelation of what it is like to live in “wide-eyed wonder” like a child to many right now that is going to see many by the direction of the Holy Spirit, change their pace, and make room in their lives for more time to sit at His feet in wide-eyed wonder, to slow down and be present and enjoy the little moments and not miss the beauty, revelation and His voice in the little things of every day. The Lord showed me through watching the children, the Holy Spirit will speak and there will be a rearranging of priorities for some that is going to make space for a new move of God in their lives that they have not anticipated or expected.
I heard the Lord say, “I am going to teach many of My people again the place of JOY in Me and FUN with Me.”
The Lord said to me that the battle many have faced in this last season that many have forgotten the joy that it is to know Him and to not be so weighed down. We are in a serious and intense season, but the Lord showed me that many have forgotten what it is like to have fun with Him and to LAUGH.
The Lord is going to meet many who have been heavy laden and weighed down by life in moments with children that are going to bring forth such JOY, an explosive joy within hearts that will see the Holy Spirit breathing life back into hearts in those moments as they are reminded again through watching children what it is like to have fun and to laugh.
There is going to be a deeper level of encounter with the Lord revealing in greater ways what it looks like to live in childlike faith, to take the Lord at His Word, and to live in a deeper level of trust without fear. There is going to be a new level of joy that is going to spring forth in hearts as the Holy Spirit uses children to minister His heart for His people to walk in childlike faith and humility.
Some of your prayers are about to be answered, hearing the voice of the Lord, deeper revelation, and lessons the Lord is wanting to teach, through the mouths of babes and watching them.
Pay attention to them! There are some monumental moments with the Lord set up for you by the Lord through children. Don’t allow distraction to rob you. Slow down and listen for Him closely, He’s speaking and revealing.
