Have you noticed? Some services are surprising, and others are not. At times I am ready to go home, because I have been up too, long, and I had little rest. It is harder to function when this happens. You know, God sees us when we are sick, and when we are going places that we need to go. God is everywhere, and He will talk or listen to you any time of the day, or night.
Let’s talk about the anointing of the Holy Spirit. When you received Christ, someone prayed about your coming to Him. I don’t know who, but sometimes people just pray, and a name will come to mind that they don’t know. They pray for that person, because God wants them to pray for him, or her right then. I prayed for someone named one lady for a day, and longer. Then I kept on praying. I finally met her. I didn’t tell her I had been praying, but she was so full of the love of God, and the anointing of the Holy Spirit was there.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit comes to break the yokes of bondage that we have in our lives. Do you know He can cause someone to come to Christ because of the prayers of so many people about one, person? They come, and it may take a while, or a short time. The anointing of God is what we should want. I do believe that reading the Word, praying for cleansing, and confession of sins go together.
Humility is knowing that Christ died for you, as well. Humility is forgiving all those who have run away, and come back to Christ. That was the miracle. They came back with humility. Forgiving people gets harder until you see how much God forgave you. You want the anointing? It isn’t there when pride, and arrogance are speaking out of your mouth. God sees to the heart. I usually pray for those who displayed their arrogance.
I pray until God says, “Let go.”
