Just imagine, you’re inside of the Throne Room you hear a sweet but authoritative Voice, a Voice so powerful to shake you, yet gentle enough to calm you. This voice gives you the play by play moves concerning you and then tops it off with saying, “this is you before you were ever thought of." Next, He calls you His own and then commissions you because He trusts you. Yes, He has faith in you but wants to work on your trust in you and your trust in Him, so He tests you.
Child of Mine, what do you see?
You tell Him
Child of Mine, again, what do you see?
You tell Him.
You’ve been tested, tried and true, now, He’s ready to perform His Word.
Before you head off in your mission, it's important to know a few things. You must understand that while God was preparing you, He not only tested your trust, but He confirmed your identity, as we discussed HERE. He also sharped your EarSight. Yes, your earsight. You have ears that can see. Because you have ears that can see, we’ll cover that today, as well as the Words in your mouth.
In the Book of Jeremiah, Chapter 1 verse 11, The Lord God, asked Jeremiah a question concerning His sight. “Jeremiah, what do you see?” This question was a pivotal moment in Jeremiah’s life, and it had everything to do with his earsight.
Okay, so when it comes to earsight, obviously there are two words, ear, and sight. Together, earsight enhances the prophetic gifting. When hearing from God, you must have the ability to see what you heard. If you don’t, God will faith build to strengthen your spiritual sight. After all, now faith is the substance of thing hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (see Hebrews 11).
When God is faith building, He first sharpens your ear. He will ensure that you have the power to hear from Him rightly, correctly and confidently. This will require you to trust that His Spirit is inside of you and that He desires to not only use you but also speak to you.
When God speaks a word, your faith and trust in yourself and in God must be grounded in His Word. Before I go any further, I want to clarify. The reason why I say your faith and trust in yourself must be grounded in His Word because you must believe that you have the ability and power to hear. Yes, you must trust in God, and He also has trust in you; therefore, you must know that you can be used by God, for God.
Now that that's cleared up let's continue… As you are built in your faith to hear from God, your confidence in being able to see what God has said, before it comes into fruition will give you the foresight to understand what God is doing when He calls you. Kind of like the moment when Elijah told Ahab to go up to eat and drink because there is a sound of the abundance of rain…Before there was ever rain, Elijah had earsight – the ability to see what God has spoken. (see 1 Kings 18:41, NKJV).
Words in Your Mouth
Using the same example from 1 Kings 18:41, Elijah had the faith to speak what he saw through his earsight. Elijah had his own share of being built up in faith and trained in his prophetic office; therefore, he was able to confidently speak what He not only heard but what he saw. Elijah spoke into an area that seemed dry and impossible because Elijah trusted that God wanted to talk to him. He accurately prophesied the coming of rain even though to the natural eye it appeared as if rain was the last thing to happen.
When God puts words in your mouth, He trusts that you will deliver. Your earsight is what will be the driving force of being able to speak when God calls you. When God calls, your faith in Christ must be solid.
When God calls you, you must remember your moments of being confirmed (read about it HERE) trained and commissioned, which we’ll talk about later. Your faith is the foundation of your ministry, work mission, or whatever you wish to complete. By faith, walk as God calls. If you struggle with faith, no worries, we have an entire series on faith, Read it HERE. ;)
