Q. My question is, does God change his mind? Can a pastor lose His anointing?
A. In Romans 11:29 Paul wrote that God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. He won’t cancel them or take them back. If a person is called by God to be a Pastor, it’s for life. This doesn’t mean the pastor won’t ever go through “down” periods or even doubt his calling from time to time. It just means if that happens, what he’s feeling is not from the Lord. As for the anointing, it came with the call. You can’t very well have one without the other.
