God’s anointing comes upon us to do His will. I’m not talking about the fellowship we have with God throughout the day. I am talking about the empowerment to do what is impossible for us alone. You see, only God can give life. All we can do is obey.
Long ago, I gave my testimony in a church in Egypt. The interpreter came alive as he translated my humble coming to Christ. It was as if God flipped a switch. Bam! Every man in the church came forward, wanting me to lay hands on him for prayer. It was cool!
For years, I thought the interpreter embellished my simple testimony. Now I know it for what it was. The Holy Spirit indwelled the interpreter to bless His children. I felt it too, but not until prayer time. But as soon as the last man was prayed for, it was over.
Now, I love hearing how the Holy Spirit moved someone as they’d read my stories. Wow, even scribblings on paper can be the vessel of God’s empowerment. How cool is that?
Thank you Lord for letting us come along for the ride!
