Let’s take a look at 2 churches: Saul’s church and David’s church.
1 Samuel 11:15. Saul’s church had just about everything that could be wanted naturally. They had a fancy building and money. Saul used to be a praying man. 1 Samuel 14:35. Later on, however, I don’t see him building an altar. Later on, we find him going to a witch. Instead of seeking God, he went to seek the things he used to try and destroy.
1 Samuel 15:26. I believe there are some ministries standing around the world today that have millions of followers who think everything is fine, but in reality, God has walked away. God walked away from Saul and no one knew but Samuel and David. 1 Samuel 28:6.
The Kingdom of God is going on. It will not stop if a man or woman in a leadership position sells out to the devil and won’t come back to God. God will have someone to replace them. The work of God will go on.
So, let’s talk about the second church.
Psalms 34:1. David’s church had a praise. Despite everything David went through and what he faced, he was going to bless the Lord at all times. Even when it looked like there was no way out of his hard situations, he was going to praise the Lord. David’s church was one full of worship. Psalms 95:6.
Psalms 20:7. David knew who his keeper was. Psalms 23:1. David knew who his provider was, who was going to give him peace, and who was going to protect him.
1 Samuel 16:12. David had a word from the Lord to hold onto right here. I would encourage you to pray for your personal word from the Lord. When the battle is raging, we need that word from God we can hold onto and wave in the devil’s face when he comes against us. “If God be for us, who can be against us?”
When David went out to face that giant, Goliath, He knew he wasn’t going to die. His word from the Lord had not been completed yet. He hadn’t sat on the throne as king yet. If you have a word from God, you will keep going. The Word of God will carry you through a desert, keep you in a storm, keep you through a battle, and make a way for you.
David had an anointing.
An anointing has nothing to do with emotions. There are a lot of ways to explain it, but here’s what the anointing is: the Spirit of God flowing through an individual. This individual needs to be a clean and willing vessel; one who is open for the Spirit of God to flow through.
There’s a lot of people that the Spirit of God flows into, but it never flows out of them. To them, it becomes a blessing and not and anointing. Anointing is something that will touch another. A blessing is something that will touch a person and then it will stop with that person.
David’s anointing started at his head, but it would flow out of him to touch a whole nation. It’s not enough to let the power of God bless you. Are you letting the anointing flow and touch anyone else?
When a person goes to church and they get free in the Spirit and start worshipping the Lord, it touches other people. How many services have been hindered because the anointing came to someone who decided to be a reservoir and locked it up instead of letting it flow? They made it a blessing for themselves rather than an anointing to flow to others.
What David has wasn’t just for him. He had something that would kill a giant and set a nation free. He had something that would lead a kingdom back to God. Saul led the people away from God, but David’s blessing was to become an anointing for Israel.
We shouldn’t let the anointing only be a blessing and stop with us. The anointing will break yolks and set the captive free. We should let it flow and touch other people!
Thank God for every blessing we’ve received! When people get around us, however, we need to let the anointing flow that it might touch them. When they walk away from us, they need to know they’ve been touched by the Holy Ghost power that flows through us.
Your anointing is never just for you.
If a person’s anointing fixed all their problems, they’d become an island all by themselves and they wouldn’t need anyone. A person’s anointing is to help someone else. Their anointing will work when they are lying in a rehab bed hardly able to move. It will work when they can’t talk. It’s not a person’s strength, talent, or charisma, but the anointing of God flowing through them that touches another person.
Jehovah Jireh, Almighty God our Provider lives inside of us. We need to let Him touch other people through us! The anointing will set the captive free, lift up hands that are hanging down, heal the sick, prophesy, and lift up Jesus.
This generation needs what you have, dear friend. They need that anointing of God to flow to them. Lift your hands and ask the Lord to stir the anointing in you, so that people might see the glory of God and be touched by His power and love!
