Good morning Saints! The Lord is saying to you today “I want you to get rid of everything that is not working for you because if it is not working for you it is not of me. The things that I send to you are an over-abundance of blessings and they would work for you somehow throughout the year. Some of you are holding onto things that are actually holding onto you and holding you back. Out with the old and in with the new. I am doing a new thing. Allow me to do a new thing in your life. Cover yourself every day with the blood of Jesus and no harm can come to you. Cover your households every day in prayer. Cover your loved ones every day in prayer. I am not deaf you do not have to continually repeat things to me or talk loudly. I hear the short prayers as well as the long prayers. In fact some long prayers I reject because they are through vanity and not from the heart. Just like the rabbis did years ago in Israel. They thought they were better than others because they could pray loud and long. When I sent Samuel to pick a king for Israel he picked the smallest one, David because I do not look on the outside but the inside. David had big brothers, tall brothers, strong brothers, but David became the king. Other people around you may think that they look better, talk better, sing better, preach better, even live better than you, but I have chosen you. You are my kings and queens. You are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people and I love you. So this year drop everything that has not been working for you because it doesn’t deserve a place in your life. It is like dead wood, it has no life in it. Just as the soothsayer who didn’t deserve a place in Paul and Silas’s ministry, they didn’t need someone to ‘blow the trumpet and announce them everywhere that they went.’ My anointing IS the trumpet. My anointing WILL pronounce and announce you. Trust me, I love you.”
Act 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
Act 16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
Act 16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
