This year has been a landmark year of expansion, multiplication, and increase. I am so honored to see what the Lord has done in this ministry in 2015. Thank you for joining your strength and ability with Faith Builders through your financial support and prayers. Together, we are shining a light in the darkness as well as building faith in Body of Christ.
Partnership provides a spiritual connection. The Lord ordained partnership as means of sharing and distributing the anointing. He ordained the principle of partnership to supply the spiritual power for the assignment or mission. The men who found David in the cave Adullam and joined their efforts to help the assignment of God on his life became partakers of the anointing given to David. They became mighty men because they partook of the anointing of might that God had given David to accomplish his task. The connection was made as these men helped David fulfill his God-given assignment.
These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel. I Chronicles 11:10
The Shunammite woman recognized that Elisha was a man doing God’s work. She joined to his assignment by providing food and a nice place for the man of God to sleep when he was in town. She shared supply and provision of a natural source and received supply and provision of a supernatural source. God supernaturally supplied her the ability to conceive a child after years of barrenness. But it didn’t stop there! When destruction came knocking at her door, she placed a faith demand on the anointing with which she was connected. The Lord God raised her son! (II Kings 4)
The disciples became partakers of Jesus’ anointing as they supported his ministry with their abilities. Once again we see the principle in motion. They brought a natural supply of help and received a spiritual supply of the anointing. In Luke 10, Jesus sent out seventy disciples with His anointing operating in their lives. They laid hands on the sick and preached the kingdom. They remarked to Jesus upon their return, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name!” His anointing was working in them and for them.
That same principle is at work in our partnership. As believers, we are connected to Jesus Christ through the new birth. We have His anointing in our lives. When we connect to His purposes and His assignments, we position ourselves for the measure of the anointing in operation for that task. Jesus declared, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.” The anointing was for His purpose. There is an anointing on Pastor Philip and me to build people’s faith. It is a burden removing, yoke destroying power to set at liberty those bound with addiction, fear, or disease. This anointing is expanding, multiplying and increasing because our reach is expanding, multiplying, and increasing!
The anointing and spiritual supply to build faith and frame people’s world by the Word of God is available for my partners to access by faith. The power of God has increased on us in 2015 because our reach is expanding. We are reaching more people. We are building faith in two languages. We are framing people’s world in prisons and drug rehabs. Lay hold on that increase in your own life. Make your declaration of faith, “Lord, as a partner with Michelle Steele, I receive an increase of faith and power to build my marriage, my finances, and my health.”
The Lord recently revealed some things to my husband, Pastor Philip Steele, about what we can look forward to and lay hold on for the year to come. As my partner, I want you to see clearly and lay hold of this next year with a strong grip of faith. It is time for clarity! It is time for recompense! It is time for release!
“2016 will in part be known as the year the picture became clear. There are many things that up until now you have seen only in fragments. There have been flashes of the whole but, never a full panoramic view. 2016 will in part be known as the year you began to see it all and understand more completely your role and call. 2016 will be a year of ingathering– ingathering into churches and ministries, but also ingathering into families. Families are going to be restored as never before.
2016 will be a year of confusion for the world. They will be confused over what to do, who to elect, and what steps to take. But for the church, 2016 will be a year of clarity and calm; a year of certainty and joy; a year of fulfillment and peace even in the midst of turmoil and confusion. 2016 will be the year of the payoff; the year when recompense will flow; recompense for all the times you stood and it appeared the result was loss; recompense for that which was stolen by the enemy or even taken or lost through ignorance.
2016 will be a year of building, a time for ministries to press forward as never before. It is not a year to draw back. It will be a year to ask the Lord for more assignments and more responsibilities. For the time is short, shorter than ever before. So there can be no idle hands, no dragging of the feet. Step up to the mark and toe the line. Ask for the hard jobs, the big ones too. Barriers will fall and obstacles cease.
2016 A YEAR OF RELEASE!”
