I sense the Lord saying, “The older stars in My kingdom are going to shine brighter and do greater exploits than ever before!” I sense there is a special anointing coming upon older men and women in the body of Christ. God is not through using you. Your age is not against you, it is for you. Job 12:12 says, “Wisdom is with the elderly, and understanding comes with long life.” You have more wisdom now than ever. With years comes understanding.
This anointing is going to cause you to live longer. Many of you have not planned to live long enough. It will be an anointing similar to Caleb when he reached 85 years. He said to the Lord, “I am as strong now as when I was 40, and I want to take another mountain!” There is coming a “spiritual fountain of youth” into your midst, a renewing, a release of God’s strength. Psalm 68:28a says, “Your God has commanded your strength.” God is commanding His strength into you! The God’s Word Translation says, “Your God has decided you will be strong!”
Why Many of You Will Have to Live Longer
Many of you are going to have to live longer because God is not through using you. Many of you are going to go into a second “childhood” in the Spirit. You will be reactivated by God to live out the dreams you are only dreaming about right now. People and relatives will laugh and say, “You are going to do what? You are going to go where? At your age?” But that anointing is going to rise up within you to take mountains, to do exploits, to run and not be weary, to walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).
Our older years are when we are in our prime to be used and bring forth fruit. Psalm 91:16 says, “With long life I will satisfy [you] and show [you] My salvation.” There is an anointing coming upon God’s people to live longer. The joy of the Lord, which is our strength, is lengthening our days upon the earth.
Many have made out their wills, but before you think about leaving, check out your Father’s will for you. I don’t think you are going anywhere for a while. As Abraham and Sarah conceived in old age, you are about to conceive and live to see your Isaac … your impossible dream!
Remember, “too old” is not in the Bible.
