Most people want to wait until they "feel" anointed before they try to minister to someone.
Some have even been taught that they MUST wait until they feel anointed to minister.
NO WHERE are Christians told to wait to minister to anyone.
As a matter of fact, we are told to preach the word in season and out. The original Greek of that verse says, "when opportunity presents itself and when it doesn't".
That means that it is always the right time to minister the Word.
The Bible says that the Gospel IS the power of God unto salvation....
If the Good News is the power of God and we are to preach the Good News, then it must always be the right time to minister to anyone.
Many try to feel something, that they assume would be the anointing.
We are not told to wait for an anointing.
The early disciples were told to wait until they had received
power from on high or more specifically, they were told to wait
for the promise of the Father, which happens to be the same thing. They had to wait until the Day of Pentecost for the Holy Spirit to be released.
No where after that day are they told to wait. As a matter of fact they began to minister immediately after receiving the Holy Spirit.
