Here I sit having been saved since 1977, having preached 29 years and 46 years old. I realized at 10 years of age there was something special happening in my life and I knew there was a wonderful God impacting my life. I still remember that August Sunday night in 1977, when my older sister gave her life back to Jesus, how I felt such a pull on my heart to come to him too. I remember walking down to the front of the church and saying I wanted to be saved. I wanted the Holy Ghost. I remember a little while later speaking in other tongues and dancing and praising God for this new dimension I had walked into.
That same year I began singing solos and there appeared to be something special happening there too. When I would sing something happening in the church. I would sing "He touched me and made me whole", "It's in my heart", "On Christ the solid Rock I stand" among others. I felt something special every time I sang and every time I served in ministry. I clearly had an anointing on my life at a very young age.
Tonight as I type this and look back I felt compelled to type to so many of you who tasted early anointing in your life and somehow have seen trouble or situations come seemingly to destroy the true impact you were born to have. I have been through it since 1977. In 1979, at 12 years of age, my life changed never to be the same again as my inner world crashed and the anointing on my life was no longer the only thing I had developing in my life. It appeared the enemy was permitted to sow a seed in me while others slept. This seed would damage my heart, my mind and my character. Little did I know at the time the full impact this seed would have but I was no longer that 10 year old who sang and the anointing would fall. I sang, the anointing fell but afterwards other battles developed in me.
Recently I have sensed a strong presence of God and a clear understanding of what he wanted of me like I had not in many years. As I sit here and write tonight I want to encourage the people who this blog is being written for. You may feel you have failed and that it is too late for you or maybe you have been written off by someone. Listen, this is your time to rise and claim what your father said is your. In the Kingdom we have an inheritance and it cannot be revoked. No WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER. For many years in my life a weapon I did not invite, did not want and had nothing to do with it being formed against me kept me so busy that I almost forgot whose and who I was. That lying devil had convinced me to turn on myself. He had me believing I could only serve a few people because my name was tarnished and I had hurt some people. What I now know is my story contains glory. My story does not help everyone but it helps the right ones. I have been aimed for some people in the earth who I have the stuff that will help them process their freedom and their rights as kingdom citizens.
My friend, don't allow the enemy to convince you that greatness cannot happen for you now. You have been anointed for greatness. I am telling you that I am so convinced that I am anointed for greatness that I know every connection from this point forward is a connection with a greatness agenda. I am called to father sons and daughters and see people raised to their full potential in Christ. I am not on the earth for projects but I have been called to raise people. Don't you sit there one more night and allow the enemy to beat you up. You have what it takes to do what you have been called to do in the earth if you have God's word. The thief needs you to walk away from what is yours and allow him to have it. When I was at my worst I never wanted to hurt nor to hurt anyone. The enemy exploits us and then uses what he knows about us against us. Let me tell you again "NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER!" You are the chosen of God and you have been anointed for greatness. So CHAMPION get up get to the starting blocks and get ready because your new race is about to begin and this time run with patience and know that God will bear you up in your every trial. Do not give up this time. This is your best year and the King has appointed you for a job no one else can do therefore making you necessary. Do not fear who has rejected you because your stuff only works for those who receive you and who you have been assigned too. Be blessed and let's live this life to its fullest. You ARE anointed for Greatness! That enemy wanted to run me off because he had peaked my anointing. Now I will make him pay by the changed lives and the souls that come into the Kingdom. Join me and let's be ALL we have been anointed to be. YOU ARE ANOINTED FOR GREATNESS!
