On yesterday after ministering in dance at an event in a nearby city, a very sweet young woman walked up to me, hugged me, and told me that I had an “anointing.” Well I have heard this many times before from different people. I have even had people to state that they experienced healing or could see me as if I am “floating” while dancing! While I always endeavor to remain humble and respond by giving God the glory, honor and credit for the anointing upon my life, I was still reminded by the Lord that I am to never lose the essence of what I am carrying on the inside! In other words….”daughter, don’t ever just get used to hearing those compliments and lose focus on how important, serious, and precious it is!” The same Spirit that rose Christ from the dead dwells within us, praise God!
A couple of years ago I wrote a book entitled, “The Day I Danced Under an Open Heaven.” This book references the revelation that we are glory carriers. In John 17:21-22, Jesus prayed to the Father and declared that He has given us the same glory that the Father gave to Him! (Read John 17:21-22) God wants to allow us to hear the heartbeat of heaven as we minister to people, as we walk along the pathway of life, and even as we sleep! I pray that I will never lose sight of just how deep and honorable it is to have God’s anointing come upon me and live on the inside of me. I long to see more of His glory so that He can be glorified and that people can truly experience His presence through me. Lord teach us how to appreciate and how to handle the Holy things of You!
