Bypass Anointing

Bypass Anointing

The Holy Spirit moves through us in many ways including what I call the “Bypass” anointing. Sometimes in our day-to-day circumstances, when we will assume we hinder the Holy Spirit from moving through us because of our flesh. For instance, we may be upset and haven’t had time to shake the dust off our feet, or our bodies are weak or in pain.  

For example, Smith Wigglesworth arrived home exhausted 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 despite us. What matters is for us to always remain available to Him. It is He who is able.  

When opportunities come our way to minister to others, we must rely on the Holy Spirit. 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.”

Able?

Able?

When the Lord guides our steps into something new, a sense of being inadequate can come upon us attempting to stop us. Learning to yield to God’s ability, and not our own ability, takes time. We experience His power in and through us as we step out with faith in His power.

We hear of an opening for an employment position we have been waiting for but are afraid of rejection because of our lack of qualifications. A door opens for a new relationship, but we feel insecure about the future. As the Lord strengthens us in the power of His might, He continues to bring opportunities our way to take us to a place of confidence in Him. It is so we know that even when we are unable, God is able. 

Our heart wills do His will and our desire to follow Him overtakes our inability to do so in our own strength. God enables us to obey Him, one step at a time. When we come to the end of ourselves, He begins. When we stop, He starts. God is able and unchangeable. His power rests upon us, 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.”
