You and I are designed to be the conduit in which God’s power and His anointing flow through. This amazing power flows freely when we stay calm, cool and collected during any life situation. Calm during a personal storm, cool under fire, and collected despite betrayal. Make no mistake…this is much easier said than done.
Scripture gives us a description of calm like this…
And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God,
whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Let all bitterness, and wrath,
and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking,
be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another,
forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
– Ephesians 4:30-32
“Be kind to one another.”
A good friend helped me to put this verse into perspective by instructing me to replace “one another” with my husband’s name. Try it with someone close to you. Then replace it with the name of a relative, your children, a neighbor, your boss, a co-worker, or your ex – any person that may disturb your flow.

The anointing flows without interruption when we walk in love. No strife. No fear. No selfishness. The anointing has room to flow and bless others through our lives when we relinquish our personal agendas and carnal emotions. The anointing is sacred. It requires our focus to remain on God. Once activated, He shows us what to do with it. Thankfully, you and I do not have to be perfect to transmit such a powerful gift! But there is something we must do…
Stay Calm. Be Kind. Flow.
