READ: Luke 19:12-27

And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

Luke 19:24

Paul was someone who felt he would get into all sorts of trouble if he did not preach the Gospel “…yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). He was not wrong! Indeed, I think I can say those words with Paul.

Every minister who does not take the leading of the Spirit seriously will open himself to all sorts of dangerous attacks. He will be in danger of losing the anointing! A minister must obey the voice of God to avoid having the gift taken away. “And he said unto them that stood by, TAKE FROM HIM THE POUND, and give it to him that hath ten pounds” (Luke 19:24). Dear man of God, do not think that you are indispensable. If you do not do what God wants you to do, your ministry will be taken away from you and given to another. Read it for yourself ! Take from him the pound! If God gave you a pound, He can take it back when He wants to.

Pastors seem to enjoy hiding behind Romans 11:29: “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. They think that God will never take away His anointing. What this Scripture means is that God does not change His mind about you. He never changes His decision to call you or use you. He never changes His decision to anoint you.

Keep the gift of God by obeying His call! Be sensitive to His voice! Do what He tells you to do and you will succeed in ministry! Do what is hard and difficult rather than what is nice and easy!
