The local church is VERY important to God. He created the structure of having an earthy shepherd over us for our blessing. Your pastor is anointed to speak answers into your life. 1 Cor. 2:4,5 “My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in DEMONSTRATION of the Spirit and of POWER, that your faith should not rest in the wisdom of men but on the power of God.” The Holy Spirit manifests when the Word is preached! Go expecting to receive!
