God wants you to protect the anointing He has over you. Do not be reckless with it. He gave it to you for a reason…Be very careful who you allow to lay hands on you…Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
1 Timothy 5:22.
He says watch and see who I put in front of you to share the anointing with. I have given the anointing to you there is plenty to go around but do not be careless with what I’ve given you. I’ll give it to who I choose who will use it to help others. I watch and know their heart. Use it with Honor. Honor me respect me. You have an authority in you. Do not be jealous of others anointing because there is plenty to go around I am God and I am before, after and now. I am More than enough. I am never ending. Trust Me when I say there is plenty but I’m watching to see what you do with what you got…
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
When I was young in ministry I didn’t know any better and I was praying with a lady I didn’t know (but there was something about her) and she said oh now let me pray for you. The next day I became very depressed and realized what I allowed to happen she transferred her stuff to me and I had to break it off in Jesus Name. Then I was better it lifted. If you can catch a physical cold from somebody you can catch spiritual junk from people also. Be very careful and choosy who lays hands on you. When I do my ministry of laying hands on there is a warfare and I have seen bad Spirits come out of people and they received freedom but I have to know what I’m up against and be armoured up at all times and know what authority I carry. If there is any fear in me then the devil knows and smells it and I could be hurt…Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.
Acts 19:13-16 NIV
God says let me shake your tree. I can be a gentle wind and some of those old limbs will gently fall off. Sometime you might need a Big wind to get a real shaking. Some of that stuff you are holding on to needs to come off. You might be sore for a while but oh you will be free! Your holding on so tight I’m going to send a Big wind to get rid of those limbs that are getting in the way of you growing. God says that’s enough of holding on let them go and I’ll leave your strong branches I gave you that can bear through the shaking, wind and storms. Those are what I will grow I’ll grow those branches big and strong and then I’ll produce more branches for you that I choose. Shake off those dead ones! Leave them on the ground they wern`t strong enough to stay with you. They were taking the focus off of you growing.
The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”
I was on my backside on the floor couldnt get up frustrated that I was laying there. In a small Spirit Filled Church in Fred Tx. How did I end up here. I’ve been a fighter my whole life. There was a warrior Spirit in me that God must had placed there as child I just never knew what to do with it. I had Jesus, taught Sunday school, read my Bible every morning. I was even going into the Prisons with a ministry and seeing many Women come to Christ. What just happened?? She layed her hands on my head and spoke in this beautiful language and something went through me and there I was.
I got up off the floor and I couldn’t quit crying something changed in me in the time I was laying there. There was an overwhelming love that pierced me. A lightness that came over my body a new boldness that grew every day. A gift that when I prayed with others that they experienced Gods Presence, Love and healing power of fire flowing through them. I found out that I was Baptised and Anointed with Holy Spirit and the Fire of His presence burns deeper every day. That is Freedom of Holy Spirit. No more chains no more bondage no more worries because there was a faith placed in me so big!
This is what I know and the knowledge God has given me about Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is a person who has feelings. He is happy, sad, ( we can grieve Him) and He can be excited! If we learn to flow with Him He will speak and show you things you never imagined. He is in the whisper in the wind. (listen) He will give you what He knows your ready for. It is for you but it is for others because He anoints your ministry so He can use you to draw people to Him. He knows your heart. If you want to experience Freedom and a new boldness a deeper knowledge. The Words will come alive in the Bible! For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”
Receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Here is the thing if you have Jesus you have Holy Spirit in you already so you dont have to do anything but be still breathe and get in Gods Presence ( put some worship music on) and sincerely ask God to use you and for Holy Spirit to manifest come alive in you to Baptise you from the top of your head to bottom of your feet and believe just believe. You dont have to run around or jump up and down. Just get in Gods Presence receive His Baptism just be a willing vessel for God. God knows your heart He made you.. trust Him.
“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” he asked them. “No,” they replied, “we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” “Then what baptism did you experience?” he asked. And they replied, “The baptism of John.” Paul said, “John’s baptism called for repentance from sin. But John himself told the people to believe in the one who would come later, meaning Jesus.” As soon as they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied. There were about twelve men in all.
Acts of the Apostles 19:2-7
There is more always more. Come follow me into the fields of lush and meadows and hills to the never-ending water and the beautiful mansions. I have this for you where I am but where you are I have what your hearts desire on earth. I know your heart I created your heart and I love you. There is more don’t quit now just when you think your at the end I will open another way a bigger and better way just sit still and trust me. Where I have you people will not understand but they will see one day. It’s so much to comprehend in a human mind. Keep using the anointing over your life I created you for. Place your hands on them and let them feel my love. Sometimes I’ll make you rest and pull back but then I’ll put a stir in your Spirit and you will not stop. I’m leading you stay close very close. Trust me
What I think it should be and what it is.. is two different things. I was grabbing jackets this morning as I was running out the door and thought well it’s April and should be warm today not so cold! Then I thought well that’s about right because sometimes what I think it should be and what is.. is not the same thing. I’ll see people walking around in short sleeves and flip flops today because they think its what it should be, but right now it’s cold so bundle up! Now sunny days and warmer skies are ahead so be prepared. I like to be ready but also stand in the now of the day. So as I dress warm and stay out of the rain I’ll be getting prepared for summer that’s coming also. It’s called faith that it will come it always comes so I have faith in the waiting. Yesterday I was blessed and honored to get to teach children’s church. The lesson was over God’s healing. Now I have seen God heal instantly or it might take days or years or He might use doctors to heal but God He is always our healer. So today I might still feel that pain I asked and claimed and thanked God to take away but Jesus has already healed me on the cross Jesus says by My stripes you ARE healed… But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. Isaiah 53:5
So if Im still hurting I know in my natural eyes that I can feel the pain today but I also have faith He has already healed me in the supernatural and that it will happen in the natural that I will actually feel that pain leave me. I have unwavering faith..a complete faith… But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do James 1:6-8
So today it might be cold and rainy and I need to do what I do to get warm and stay inside and do inside stuff but sunny skies are ahead. God is saying I want you to pray and thank me for the rain I know its hard but I have an open door for you and so sunny and beautiful through that door. It’s in your unwavering faith.
Driving my child to school I look back in the rear view mirror and God shows me his trust as he sits in the back seat and I drive the car. He is holding his backpack playing his rubix cube and not paying attention to where I go just trusting me. Our children trust us with their life as it it should be. God handmade and designed them in our womb. Placed us all together for His plan and purpose. We were handpicked for them and they us. For all their seasons of life (baby to old) God has equipped us for them. We are to take care of them and teach them His word. Pray over them and stay close to God so He can guide us through. Then we let go when they are adults and trust we have done the best we can as the parents God helped us be with continued prayers. We trust the process and stay far enough away but close by so if they need our guidance or they need to just visit or talk on the phone to be in our presence we are there for them. A couple of years ago I said Mitch where is God can you feel Him and He said God is in your hands I feel Him in your hands. Wow that was a beautiful statement and such love that he felt God in his moms hands. He knows God is in his heart but he knows who will pray over him in an instant. This is how God wants to be to us also. That we can sit in the back seat and trust Him to drive this car and do our thing He has created us to do. We are in His hands He created us for Him and He is for Us. Just like my son trust me I should trust God. We should not worry because God loves us so much more than we love our children. That is amazing because as parents we love and will do anything for our children! Ill let Him take the wheel today and I’ll sit back and ride and let Him guide me with His hands.
“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
The Joy of the Lord is our strength! ( Nehemiah 8:10) When David brought back the Ark of God. He had to do it with respect because the Ark carried God’s presence and when the Ark was in a place His presence was there and when the Ark was not there His presence and Glory were not there. David was bringing the Ark of God back to the city of David but he sacrificed animals every few steps and danced and played the tambourine and showed honor and respect for God’s Presence. (2 Samuel 6: 1-15) He worshiped God what God wants us to do! What he created us for! We are to get in His presence and worship Him. When Davids wife saw him coming she thought he looked like a fool because of the way he danced before everyone. She didn’t understand the Joy of God’s Presence. She didn’t want people to look at her and her husband crazy or less than. When we worship God We raise our hands and humble ourselves and not care what those Michals ( David’s wife) say. By the way Michal was rebuked for the way she acted. David had the Ark of the Lord (God’s glory)! The Joy of the Lord! You know I would have been dancing also because back then You could not live and see God. You would not survive if you touched the Ark only Priest were allowed to handle it. To be in His Presence WOW how could you not be joyful? How much more Joy should we have in us now that Jesus (Joy) (The Ark) God’s Presence) Holy Spirit resides in US! What He did for Us on the Cross! We don’t need a priest to go through anymore or an Ark to be near Gods Presence. Ask God…Fill me with You overflow me with Your Joy, Your presence remove from me sadness it’s not of You and Your in me. Let me feel you! Get your worship music on and dance like David. How much do you want to be in His Presence? How much do you want Joy (Holy Spirit) to overcome you? Holy Spirit Baptise us with your Joy! Will you look like a fool for the ones who don’t understand? Are you worried about what they think? THEY cannot fill you with Gods Presence THEY cannot release your sadness and critical heart. Only GOD can and He knows your heart. God said David is a man after my own heart. That’s how I want God to see me. After His heart! Not caring what others think. So I ask you…Where does your heart lie today? How bad do you want Joy (Holy Spirit) to overcome you?
