Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live. Don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what’s good. Throw out anything tainted with evil. May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together—spirit, soul, and body—and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!
I Thessalonians 5:16-24 (The Message)
Life and life’s challenges are not a one time event nor are they somehow ambivalent to our weaknesses, they are purposefully designed to attack and wear us down at our weak points to overcome and separate us from God and His purpose and plan for our lives. In order for us to resist the attacks on our promise, our anointing, we must be intentional about our ability to Guard Our Anointing, God’s promises to and for our lives. To Guard Our Anointing therefore requires us to stay fit. To stay fit means that we must continuously be prepared and ready to reenforce our weak points with the power and strength of God. It is in our weaknesses that God’s strength is made perfect, albeit we must watch, fight and pray to ensure that we walk in and receive our victory and overcome. We are the God-created and thus our source of strength and joy is found not in life and life’s challenges but instead in our relationship and oneness with God. Your Worship is not a once a week event but a daily lifestyle that keeps you fit and reinforced for the attacks on who you are and what God has ordained and prepared for your life. Rejoice in God and maintain your constant communication with Him and LIVE. As we are in Worship of God we disembody ourselves from the flesh and transform our being and thinking in the Spirit that makes us living souls. Staying fit in the Spirit helps us to see and seize that which is beyond what is to what should be as declared, promised by God. The attacks are real but it is only in the Spirit in which we can see and seize our way out fueled by our faith, believing that God is in control and that He rewards us for diligently pursuing that which is our anointed way. Guard Your Anointing and LIVE by staying fit in worship, Spirit and faith and you will win, overcome and inherit all things!
