The Anointing…We all need lots of it!
I do honestly believe we all have the power, authority and likeness of God within us; for it is written that God created man in his image, in his very likeness he created man…! Therefore if we take out all self acquired mind blocks, we see the Truth in its simplicity. Bear with me here, life proves over & over that goats beget goats, sheep beget sheep, humans have human young ones and of course God is our heavenly Father thus he begets gods…god-like creatures. Psalms 82:6. And since we are God-like we have access to the power, authority, giftings, riches, and yes Anointing from our Heavenly Father… This is a fact many completely overlook and go about their lives living in spiritual lack & fear.
The Anointing – Yes please more 🙂
The anointing has been so misrepresented, misunderstood and so mystified that we cannot proceed our discourse without elaborating on the simplicity of the anointing. As shown above, we literally are anointed when we are conceived in our mothers’ womb. Our life-plan is mapped out and capped with greatness. (Remember your Father in heaven is greatness personified). Yet we allow the devil our enemy, who frankly is as we know a liar, a thief and a killer of that which has life. (That can be your mind, dreams, targets, promises, health, job, even life)! The enemy mystifies the anointing by making it look so strange that only a select few dare to move in it.
Look at Joseph, he was God’s chosen one, yet he was called the dreamer. He had the anointing for great things, even though the enemy used his brothers, so much so that they sold him into slavery. Joseph was God’s chosen one, and yet he was thrown into prison unjustly. Haaa but here is the fun bit, Joseph finished his life in a palace because he had the anointing and tapped into it. God placed him in the right place at the right time. Many times what appears to us as a dead end is God’s divine plan unfolding. Its that plan and purpose that we must look for always, and we soon find the amazing works God has created for each of us. A unique anointing just for You. Are you looking to tap into it, or are you allowing the enemy to put a shroud on it? Don’t let your dreams go to waste, in them is greatness, Act on them.
“27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.“ 1 John 2:27
Clearly thus, to continue in the anointing you must abide in Christ. Your continual fellowship with the Lord is the KEY to tapping into and maintaining the anointing. One of the ways of mentally & physically tapping into this anointing is also by someone laying hands on you. Someone with the Spirit of God within them, many a time a man or woman of God, a Priest, Vicar, Pastor, deacon, a doctor, teacher etc. Yet you might be asking the following.
Why should someone lay hands on you or anoint you with oil if you already have the anointing?
– First of all the act of laying on of hands stirs up your faith with respect to the gifts you already have.
– Secondly, no one has everything all by himself. Yes we are all wonderfully and fearfully made but we live in a fallen world, so we need help every so often. That’s why the laying on of hands gives you another dimension or measure of the anointing. The spiritual terminology here is the impartation.
To be honest with you, laying on of hands is good, the use of the anointing oil is good, all done by Faith the results can be amazing. We all know that without faith whether you are a believer or not, nothing really moves. In my view its faith when one gets in their car, starts it and goes wherever they want to. You must have some kind of faith as you leave your house that your car will start, you don’t even think about it. So why don’t we have the same faith, a faith that doesnt ever need questioning that we have the anointing to achieve whatever we choose, by the grace if God in Christ Jesus! For he said that he will give us more than want we ask for or imagine by his power at work within us. To me this scripture means that all I have to do is fave faith, follow his precepts, believe with all my soul and whatever I ask for, I shall receive way more, patted down, shaken over and overflowing. For my Lord and King says so. Remember God does not just go looking for empty vessels to fill; nor does he force us to tap into his gifts to us. He looks for useful vessels to fill and use. Matt 11:28-30
So Go out there and be all you can be,start to think positive, think great things, You have The Anointing, you have the power, you are a god-like creature. And may His grace and love follow us always. Thou anoint my head with oil my cup runneth over, surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, Forever more 🙂
