The Antidote to the Deadly Poison That Kills Prophetic Anointing

Clearly, the prophetic anointing manifests in diverse ways. All arise from the same Holy Spirit, who gives as He wills. With this in mind, a warning is in order.

There is a deadly poison that can kill our ministry and our ability to walk in our anointing: the poison of covetousness. Comparing ourselves to someone else and wanting what they have produces death. We should never judge or evaluate our anointing by someone else's anointing.

It is vitally important to avoid jealousy and insecurity. God has plenty of anointing to go around. Let's be satisfied to seek our own calling and walk in our own anointing.

The antidote to this poison is to learn to walk in accountability with others, cultivating faithfulness while giving ourselves to the unique expression of grace that God has imparted to each of us. Sometimes we are prone to allow ourselves to be hindered by rejection, criticism, legalistic traditions and the restrictive yokes and molds of others' unrealistic and erroneous expectations.

The Holy Spirit will help us and liberate us to be unique and varied expressions of His wonderful prophetic presence and yet walk circumspectly with integrity within the church.

When we are satisfied with our own calling, we acknowledge certain aspects of God's character. What are some of these? How does faith come into play in order to walk in our own anointing?
