Doing the Work of a Donkey by Rodney Howard Browne

Pastor Rodney Howard Browne explains to us that

when the anointing is not there, you go one more

time around the mill. Your life becomes a grind and you

are doing the work of a donkey. It becomes repetitious.

There’s no excitement, no joy, no strength. “I’m going

round and round and round. I can’t see like I used to. I

be something else. For everyone it is different. You must

locate it and deal with it in your life before it kills you.

Never let the devil steal the anointing from you. Do

whatever it takes to keep the touch of God upon your life.
