Many in evangelical circles today do not talk much about prophets today. In the O.T. some prophets foretold the future but many times their role was to take God’s word and tell the message to His people. Many times in spiritual direction, the director plays the role of ‘prophet’, listening to God and listening to the directee and speaking discerning words. And as many times with the prophets, the words are often difficult to say and to hear but usually the directee knows in their spirit the words are true but are going to be difficult to live. That is why the relationship of Director and directee is so important for continued growth and accountability.
