KEY SCRIPTURE:1Sa 15:22 KJV” And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”

God anoints his servants for His glory. The anointing never makes you a demigod. The anointing indicates God’s presence is with you. The anointing, therefore, put a demand on absolute submission to the will of God.

Unfortunately, some servants of God are carried away by the grace that has come on them. In our key scripture king Saul who was the anointed king decided to place his ambition before God. He became proud to the point that he was concerned about his image among men. After God spoke to him about his error, just consider what he said.1Samueĺ 15:30 KJV” Then he said, I   have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD thy God.” Saul’s problem was his image that he wanted to protect. It was this very thing that made him disobey the voice of God.

Many anointed men who fell out of favour with God did so because of their ego. There are some who would get very offended, because they were put in a hotel that, they felt was below their standard. Dear servant of God, no matter how much you are anointed or no matter how people honour you, make sure you always give that honour to the Lord Please you are never the center of attraction, Jesus is. Some men of God get so offended because he was given an honorarium far lower than his status. They vow never to go to that place again. Please dear one, whose image are you honouring, yours or the Lord’s? Never allow the anointing to deceive you.

One thing you can do to protect yourself is to have the idea of the donkey carrying Jesus. Matt 21:1-10. So long as Jesus sat on that donkey, people laid their clothes on the floor for the donkey to walk on. Who was being praised, the Lord or the donkey? That donkey must keep carrying the master. If it turns its attention to itself and put the Lord down, it would soon realise no one would even look at it. Continue to keep giving the praise to the Lord. If you think an action towards you, is a disgrace to you, just remember all your reproach falls on Jesus. Always remember it is Jesus who does the miracles. He Jesus, own’s any glory and he also carries any reproach as well. We only carry Him and act in His name, every other thing is His business.


Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your goodness towards me. Whatever I am is what you are in me through our Lord Jesus. I have no image to protect, but your image. I also don’t have any glory to maintain but God’s glory. I am very grateful to have such a relationship with you.


Phi 1:20 KJV” According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.”

Rev 4:11 KJV  “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
