Steven Furtick — You Have Nothing To Prove
Well, and I want you to know, that God has a full horn of oil, to give you a fresh anointing of his Spirit today, for this year. And all you got to do, is get close and receive it. Receive a fresh anointing. The anointing will empower me, and equip me, and enable me to accomplish my assignment, given to me by God.
I love verse 4, it's very simple, but if we could do this this year, we would succeed in every spiritual thing. It says, 1 Samuel 16:4 "Samuel did what the Lord said". I should just walk off the stage right now. So, do that, but without the anointing of God to enable us to be obedient, will become legalistic trying to do what we think God wants us to do or what God wants somebody else to do. And that's why we need the anointing, that's why we need God's Spirit. This is the secret weapon, that the enemy doesn't want you to know about. And it says: "When he arrived at Bethlehem, the elders of the town trembled when they met him. And they asked, 'Do you come in peace?'", because they didn't know what kind of Word from God this would be. Because every time God speaks, he doesn't speak just to make you feel good. And every time God opens his mouth, that didn't just to tell you how wonderful you are. Sometimes he wants to show you some things, that are out of order...
