The Bypass Anointing

The Bypass Anointing

One of the many ways the Holy Spirit moves through us is through the “Bypass” anointing. When it flows, we stand in awe of His omnipotence, His magnificence, His grace and His reality. There are times in our day-to-day circumstances when we will feel the Holy Spirit cannot move through us. It may be that we have been hurt and haven’t had time to shake the dust off our feet; or our bodies are weak or in pain; or many other factors that could hinder the flow of the Spirit.

For example, Smith Wigglesworth arrived home very tired after a long hard day at work when he received a request for prayer. He obeyed the call to go and pray for that person. He stepped forth and the person was healed. God moves in spite of us. What matters is for us to remain available to Him at all times.

We do not wait until we believe we are ready. It’s when we feel the weakest that the dunamis power of God is the greatest. When we are weak, He remains strong. We trust the Lord as we step forth in obedience and rely on the Bypass anointing. It’s in those times that the Lord bypasses who we are–to be who He is; bypasses what we cannot do–to do what only He can do; bypasses the natural–to release the supernatural. We walk by faith, from glory to glory!

2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

 

Lying Lips

Lying Lips

We place a guard over our mouth understanding that death and life are in the power of the tongue. We pray the Lord enables us to tame our tongue so our words may edify and minister grace unto the hearers. Words spoken by the flesh, out of anger, hurt those they are spoken to as well as the one spoken through.

When we say things we shouldn’t say, the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, is hindered from flowing freely. We are called to speak forth the truth of God’s word with authority and power. We must beware of the ways the enemy tries to pull us into other people’s conversations. Gossip is very destructive. Sometimes our silence is taken as our agreement with what is said. It is best to remove ourselves from a conversation that is not proper, or express our desire not to be part of what is happening. So much assumption is made by others when things are said that misrepresent the truth. Talebearers spread rumors and lies causing a lot of hurt in the Body of Christ.

We cannot answer for others, but we can condemn every word that comes against us in judgment. We can pray for our own mouth to be controlled by the power of the Holy Spirit, from glory to glory!

Proverbs 18:6-7 “A fool’s lips enter into contention, And his mouth calls for blows. A fool’s mouth is his destruction, And his lips are the snare of his soul.”
