During the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, you couldn’t rely on going to church as usual. Most churches were closed, and they transitioned to being virtual. You weren’t responsible for anything other than what was in your house because you couldn’t go out and do everything. No more big conferences. No more big travel. None of these big gatherings were going on anymore. So you had the time to get with God, pray, fast, and really build your spiritual awareness, your anointing, and all the spiritual things. I believe this had to happen so you could sustain during the pandemic and when the pandemic was over. At the end of the day, He gave you an anointing to work, have a family, and spread the good news. The anointing is not just to hold it for yourself and say, “I am anointed by God.” If you get too arrogant and cocky, He does reserve the right to take it away from you.
I transitioned into spending time with God more and did not deal a lot with who I was around before and who would try to creep up and come up during the pandemic. I had to deal with things in a certain way (spiritually and naturally).
I had spent time on a spiritual and mental seesaw, so now I just wanted to get good at spending time with God, so I could get ready for my next sets of assignments. I transitioned first within myself to understand what I was doing wrong, outside of the will of God. Then I had to transition into fighting in the Spirit and putting those spirits in their place, so they would leave me alone. Later, I had to transition my thinking in the sense of not letting other people’s negative ways, mouths, and actions overtake me. Remember, not only was I dealing with men, but also, I was dealing with women with their different ways and spirits. Things that were done and said were not always godly or positive, so I found myself fighting for my peace and contentment while feeling like I was being sifted, like I spiritual leeches were draining the spirituality out of me. I would turn on my favorite songs on YouTube or do something exciting to counteract the negativity taking place.
In the first year of the pandemic, God anointed me and said he would heal me. I didn’t even know He was anointing me, but several prophets called me and said that God was anointing me and healing me while I was at home. I set myself apart, reading and praying, doing spiritual things, being obedient, fighting off the enemy.
