Dr. Ulf Spears
When I was a child I heard the voice of God calling me into his kingdom and I received Jesus Christ as my Savior at the age of eight along with being called to ministry at the age of eighteen. I knew that without God in my life I would not be able to make it due to the challenging environment I had already experience in my home and neighborhood. Yet, to my surprise, the call on my life and the challenging environment were the perfect combination to press and fashion my life toward the Lord’s purposes. As I began to move towards those purposes by reading the bible, I realized that I was not the only person called by God’s at a young age; Jeremiah the Prophet was called generations before me and laid a foundation for what I would possibly experience, overcome and accomplish in ministry. With this in mind, here are some training points for parents as they raise young prophets, taken from Jeremiah 1:1-17:
Parents, I believe that if you keep these training points in mind as you raise your young prophet; they will be more prepared to be transferred into the hands of Lord and other trainers for further development. You can do it: Raise Jeremiah according to the word of the Lord.
