GUARD THE ANOINTING.

When you value something, you protect it, you cherish it, and you guard it. Do you look at it this way about the anointing? What is the anointing? Why should I guard this anointing? And how to preserve what God has given us will be answered.

First off, the gifts that God has given to us is way different than the anointing.

The gifts of God are the tools in which God has given us to help further the kingdom. The anointing of God is the empowerment of these gifts, make sense?

There are gifted worship leaders and yet there are anointed musicians.

There are gifted pastors but yet there are anointed pastors.

What a gift does:

A gift can fill a room

A gift can entertain a crowd

A gift can stir people up

What a gift cannot do:

Set those who are captive free.

Break off the bondage of those who are in chains.

Isaiah 66:1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, he has sent me to bind up the broken hearted; To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.

What the anointing does:

The anointing does what it’s intended to do, to break the bondages off of the enemy grip. to free those who are walking in bondage.

2 Timothy 1:14 “By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.”

How well are you guarding the anointing?

3 Keys to Living the Right Life

Key #3 to living the right life

We can live a life and live it wrong or live it right.

#1 THE RIGHT ATMOSPHERE

# 2 THE RIGHT ENERGY SOURCE

#3  THE RIGHT INFORMATION

  • WE CAN’T LISTEN TO JUNK AND SEE A ROSE GARDEN.

WHAT WE TAKE IN DETERMINES WHAT WE SEE.

IF WE GET BAD INFORMATION, FRIGHTENING INFORMATION YOU’LL BEGIN TO SEE A WORLD OF FEAR AND HOPELESSNESS.

EVEN RIGHT NOW WHAT ARE YOU TAKING IN?

THE DISTRACTIONS OR THE TRUTH OF THE WORD?

JEREMIAH 15:16 ““Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.”

Jeremiah 15:16 ESV

  1. WHAT THE LORD SAYS ABOUT YOUR SITUATION IS WHAT MATTERS.

JUDGES 6:12 WE READ ABOUT GIDEON

THE MIDIANITES AND AMELEKITES WERE OVER TAKING ISREAL BUT GIDEON WAS FOUND SPEECHLESS WHEN THE LORD HAD SENT AN ANGEL TO TELL HIM “YOU ARE A MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR”

“YOU ARE A MIGHTY MAN OR WOMAN OF VALOR”

HE DIDN’T FEEL LIKE A MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR.

HE FELT LIKE A WIMP NOT A WINNER.

GOD WAS PUTTING THE RIGHT INFORMATION IN HIM. SO GIDEON WOULD SEE HIMSELF AS GOD SEES HIM!

GOD DOESNT CALL YOU LIKE YOU ARE, HE CALLS YOU LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO BE.”

THATS WHY MANY TIMES WHEN YOU START TAKING A MESSAGE IN IT STARTS SPEAKING THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING.

HE’S TRYING TO MAKE US UNDERSTAND ITS NOT WHAT YOU ARE

ITS WHAT YOU SHALL BE!

GOD DOESN’T SEE YOU DEFEATED, OR BOUND. HE SEES YOU AS AN OVERCOMER.

IT’S TIME TO GET THE RIGHT INFORMATION, CHANGE THE INFORMATION THAT YOU ARE TAKING IN.
