Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 7:6 (KJV); Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you.
It is one thing to be anointed, it is another to be mature in the anointing.
You may mature in the anointing by reason of the period of time in which you have exercised yourself in that grace. You may also mature in the anointing by reason of the experiences you yielded and made yourself available to in that grace.
One mark of this maturity in the anointing is discernment. The mature discerning spirit knows what to say, when to say it and where to say it.
From this comes the requirement of accountability for every minister as seen from our theme scripture; are you casting pearls to swine or not?
Every minister who is mature in the anointing knows how to weigh the spirits of those to whom he ministers inorder to understand the ability of their spirits to bear certain spiritual insights.
Not every mystery you receive must be uttered in that instance. Some people are not spiritually ready to receive certain truths; and because they are not, they will twist your truth and in turn seek to destroy you too.
Not everything you see must be spoken. This is why there are things Paul accessed but he was barred by certain laws of the Spirit to utter them ( 2 Corinthians 12:4).
Discernment causes the mature minister not to stumble “by meats” but to edify by love (1 Corinthians 8:1). Hallelujah!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your word. My master, your love, that which edifies, has opened me to the depths, breaths, heights and lengths of your person. It is from this that I minister. I can never stumble the brethren by reason of the things I access and received from the Spirit. I know what to say, when to say it and where to say it. In Jesus’s name. Amen.
