The Anointing of Ease

FieldsLead05042017a

Did you know God has a simple and easy way for you to get the life you really want? Would you be amazed to know God’s intent is for you to reclaim your life of ease through his blessings and promises? What if you could speak to the storms and trials of life and make them go away just like Jesus did to the storm in scripture?

V.K. Fields shows us how to achieve all of that in her man-centered book “The Anointing of Ease”.

She describes how having the life you really want is simple and easy, because you can generate results similar to Jesus.

Would you like for your life to be easier? It is simply a matter of your will, which should only be a reflection of His will. Everything you really need to know to have the life you really want is simple-and more times than not, it’s easy because you are a believer and a follower of Christ Jesus. Following Christ means that we study His life, follow His example, and generate results similar to His.

She gives the impression we can speak to the storms we face in life, and make them go away, just like Jesus did to the literal storm. She says that by following the example of Jesus we can make storms obedient to us.

Have you ever heard a sermon that sounded something like this? “If you are a child of God, you are either in the middle of a storm, coming out of a storm, or going into a storm.” Ironically, the example we are given in the Bible is of Jesus resting during the storm and awaking only to silence the storm. He said, ‘Peace, be still.’ He did not fear the storm, worry about the storm, or curse the storm. He spoke to the storm, and the storm responded in obedience to His words and to His will. That is our example. When we follow His example, we should also get His results.

Your life should not be defined by the storm, because the storm is subject to you and your authority through Christ Jesus. In The Anointing of Ease, author V.K. Fields shares how to reclaim God’s original intent for your life of ease through His blessings and promises.

How does she measure up to scripture?

Jesus said we would have tribulation in the world.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 (ESV)

As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

Romans 8:36 (ESV)

He also said Christians groan inwardly, feeling the pain of creation.

And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

Romans 8:23 (ESV)

Did Paul experience a life of ease? Was he able to make his storms go away?

To the present hour we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and buffeted and homeless,

1 Corinthians 4:11 (ESV)

Paul described himself as hungry, thirsty, poorly dressed, buffeted, and homeless. Did he simply fail to use his authority as a believer to make his life easier?

Of course not. We all know such an assertion is total nonsense, just like this book from V.K.Fields.
