Board meetings, 501c3's and life in ministry...

Things must have been a lot easier for Jesus.  No board meetings, no 501(c)3 forms to file, and no long tax forms to fill out at the end of the year.  But then again, we have airplanes, cars, Nike tennis shoes, televisions, cell phones, and microphones.  Ok, so maybe we have it better after all...

Well, I guess I'm just reflecting on how much work it is to actually get a new ministry off of the ground.  This isn't my first time to start something new, but each time I do it, I am amazed at all that is involved.  Starting a ministry or business is work!

But thank God for Jesus and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It's amazing how much you can accomplish under the anointing versus in the flesh.  It's night and day!

Take last week for example.  I think I made more progress than I did the whole prior month.  And the reason for it was actually because of the opposition we were facing.  But rather than the opposition causing us to lose ground.  Because of the anointing, it actually propelled us forward.

That's the way it is in the Kingdom, or at least its the way its supposed to be.  The tougher it gets, the stronger we become.  The word of God says it something like this "..my grace is made perfect in weakness..."

Anyway, I'm kind of rambling on here, but I guess I just wanted to encourage everyone to keep pressing into the dreams and visions God has given them.  Don't let anything stop you.  If it looks bad, well then that just means you're in the perfect position to receive more grace.  And more grace equals more A-N-O-I-N-T-I-N-G!  And more A-N-O-I-N-T-I-N-G means more yoke-destroying, burden removing power!  So bring it on devil, you're no match for the anointing! (Especially when I'm wearing my Nike tennis shoes)!
