Lighthouse Living
The LORD is my light and my salvation; I will fear no one.
The LORD protects me from all danger; I will never be afraid.
Psalm 27:1

Know His Anointing

Samuel took the flask of olive oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers. The Lords Spirit came over David and stayed with him from that day on.

1 Samuel 16:13

When the Lord calls us to ministry were filled with His anointing. Were filled with passion and enabled to accomplish in His power and authority. But a word of warning: we must be on guard not to fall into the snare of self-righteous pride or become critical and judgmental. Prayer is crucial in order to know that were doing exactly what Gods called us to and to know that our calling isnt necessarily anothers.

A lack of understanding comes from lack in prayer. God will give insight concerning the ministry anointing upon others and ourselves if we sincerely seek it. Our energies should be invested in prayer not in critical conversation.

Would we have ridiculed a sling and five stones against a giant because it looked ridiculous? Would we have determined it foolishness to follow Joshua marching around Jericho since it hadnt been done before? Would we have considered Jesus a heretic for presuming to peel away mans religious overtures and reveal true Christian living? No!

Okay, whats our attitude toward pastors sermons or ministry direction? How do we feel about the new (different) direction in church? Whats in our heart (mind) during worship? Are we excited for all Gods doing or regurgitating and chewing on all we dont agree with? Solution: step aside, get on our knees and seek Him.

A puzzle has many pieces which when put together forms one picture. We may not understand each others passion and direction, but in prayer well see how each piece fits. Gods puts everything together for good. His anointing is powerful; walk in it!
