Prepared Hearts Anointed For A New Day

This morning I brought a message titled “Prepared Hearts Anointed For A New Day” at Living Word Community Church in San Diego, California. It will be available as a download this week from Living Word Publications.
This Word is a commission to the San Diego church, and to our Fellowship as a whole, into a new day. Like the children of Israel who spent years as slaves in Egypt, you have been in a time of trials and difficulty, but the purpose was to create a people after His own heart. God has worked to turn all of those things for good. He was with you through all of it. Romans 8:17 tells us that we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. 
David was prepared as a man after God’s own heart before he was anointed king. Saul was anointed, but he was not prepared. He could not carry the anointing outside of the atmosphere of the school of prophets. We have seen days of great anointing, but now the Lord is looking to pour out an enduring anointing on hearts prepared to carry it. Through David, God began a deep Father-son relationship with Israel. This is the end of an arm’s-distance relationship with the Father, and the beginning of a new day.
