You Are Not Too Old – God hasn’t finished with you yet

June 21, 2010 by Lynne Lee

“The older Stars in My Kingdom are going to shine brighter and do greater exploits than ever before!”

As Cal Ripken Jr. stood up to the plate in his final All-Star Game, he blasted his pitch over the left field wall. On the heels of announcing his retirement, Cal Ripken broke the record to become the oldest player to hit a home run in an All Star Game. He was named “Most Valuable Player” in his final All-Star appearance.

As history was made that night, 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, “With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.” 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 eighty-five years. He said to the Lord,

“I am as strong now as when I was forty, 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 68:28 says, “Thy God hath commanded thy strength.” God is commanding His strength into you! One translation says, “Your God has decided you will be strong!”

Many of You are Going to Have to Live Longer Because…

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 re-activated by God to live out your dreams that you are just 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!

  2. Thanks for this energizing word, Lynne! I receive it wholeheartedly. I used to think I was always a “late bloomer” but now I believe that I am right on time in God’s right timing for these end times.

    I don’t think the elders in our culture receive the honor and respect that are due them simply by means of their sheer longevity, wisdom acquired and experience accrued, but don’t count us out or down! We still have a lot to offer this world that will count for God’s glory1

    Hi Lynne,

    I forwarded this post to a couple of friends and just wanted to share their feedback:

    “It made my day. I am so looking forward to what the Lord, has in store for me, but I do wish HE would hurry up……….I could do with a bit of happiness/excitement. As I am not sure how to create it for myself. The car accident brought home to me how fragile I am & without Him I am nothing.”

    “This word is a word in time. I have returned from holiday ill and tired in all dimensions. I will ponder this word and seek our Fathers advice, for I know He is wanting to talk.”

    Bless you Lynne x
