And, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah by the word of Jehovah unto Bethel. . . Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel. 1 Kings 13.1, 11. 

This old prophet in Bethel was a man who in the past had been used by God, but now he was no longer usable. When God wished to warn Jeroboam because of his sin in Bethel, He did not send the old prophet who lived in Bethel to speak for Him.  

The phrase “man of God” denotes that such a one has communion with God, and communion is the basis for light from God. The moment communion stops, at that very moment light ceases. This old prophet once had a spiritual history, for he was at one time a prophet; however, he had now lost communion with the Lord. He became an old prophet when God could no longer use him. How grave is this situation. In view of this, we must attend to a very important issue in our Christian walk—namely, how not to be set aside by God, how not to be rejected or remain unused. Our freshness before the Lord is a most vital habit to be established or maintained. 

This daily devotional comes from the book 
The Lord My Portion by Watchman Nee.
