Jay and I had a great conversation with Pastor Glen today about the difference between integrity and anointing. PG dropped it on Jay and I in the car today. Anointing has NOTHING to do with how you live. Anointing rises and falls based on God. Integrity is how you live the rest of your life when the anointing is not “on you”. I am not sure what all of this means, but I can tell you that Pastor Glen was really bringing it in the car. I think a lot of times people confuse gift with anointing. You could be anointed to be creative, to be a mechanic, to preach, to wash cars, to make records, whatever, but you do not “live the anointing”. You may minister under it for an hour, but what do you do with the other 23 hours? That is what makes or breaks someone. PG also said because the devil is not able to know the future, he picks and chooses his battles. It is rare you hear of a small church pastor “falling” (which really they do not fall, the just make a mistake, then have to collect, but that is another blog), because the devil is looking for bigger targets in an attempt to hurt more people.

Thousands of planes take off, commute, and land every day with no report. Occasionally one goes down in flames. When that happens, it is a story. Keep your plane taking off and landing.
