Speaking Prophetically

God has a perfect plan for each and every one of us (Jeremiah 1:5) and our duty is to wait on the Lord and ask Him to reveal His plan to us so that He can use us as His instruments.

Most of the times when we are called to speak for the Lord we come up with excuses by saying – “I have no experience. I am not qualified enough” or “I don’t know what I am supposed to say.” (Jeremiah 1:6). There is so much fear in us that we would also be scared to correct someone thinking we would be hurting them.As a prophet is not recognized in his own home the same may happen to us- we may not be heard by our own family, friends as they look at the weaknesses we have.

How then do we respond to God’s call to be a prophet? Let us realize that when God calls us – He has a plan for us and we need to be ready to accept His plan. He will put the right words in our mouth. God is calling you and me for a greater responsibility – To be His prophets – To deliver His message to the people. We need to be bold, we need to have the courage to stand for what is the truth and guide people in the right way.

“They will fight against you, but not prevail over you, for I am with you to deliver you” (Jeremiah 1:19)

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
