Mark 6:12-13 MSG
Then they were on the road. They preached with joyful urgency that life can be radically different; right and left they sent the demons packing; they brought wellness to the sick, anointing their bodies, healing their spirits.

In Mark 6:12-13, we see that everything on the inside of them continued to overflow. Preaching cannot happen if you’re motivated by materialistic rewards of preaching like money or fame. Your ministry should happen as an overflow of what’s on the inside of you. If there’s no joy on the inside, it will not overflow into the people around you. If there’s no song in your heart, you will not be able to sing a new song to God when you’re worshiping on a Sunday. God wants your ministry to be an overflow of what is happening in your heart.
The Bible says as they went preaching with this joyful urgency, they sent the demons packing. That is your assignment. You are not called to flee from the enemy; the enemy should flee from you. You need to flee from temptations and things that pull you down to bondage and traditions. The Bible says resist the devil and he will flee from you. Resist the enemy every step of the way and you will see the enemy leave from every area of your life. You will see such a level of God’s favor everywhere you walk into. You have the ability to reverse everything the enemy brings into the world. The enemy’s job is to kill, steal and destroy. Your job is to bring life in abundance because you carry Jesus in your life.
There are people who are unwell in different areas; your job is to bring wellness and healing into their bodies and lives. That is your calling – to send the demons packing and anoint the bodies of the sick. Just one touch from you is enough when there is an overflow on the inside of you. When you receive this message with thankfulness and joy, whatever is on the inside of you is bubbling up and multiplying and it will begin to affect the people around you. You will see demons leaving. You will see wellness and healing of souls and spirits accompany every word you speak when there is an overflow in your personal life.
How can you attain this overflow? Just rest in the promises of Christ. Rest and believe in Jesus. John 7:38 says, whoever believes in Me, rivers of living water will flow from within them.
Keep on overflowing with the presence and the power of Jesus that works through the Holy Spirit.
