The Power Of Anointing In Your Life. Part 1


Anointing is a divine enabling. It is an outflow of the Holy Spirit through a human vessel. 

Anointing is the in-filling of the Holy Spirit. It is after baptism that one receives the anointing. This was clearly illustrated in the ministry of Jesus. When he was baptised at River Jordan, the Bible says that the Holy Spirit came upon him in the form of a dove. Thereafter, he was led by the spirit into the wilderness, from there he returned in the power of the spirit. He came under a strong and powerful anointing and his fame spread abroad. He read from the scriptures:

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set free the oppressed and to announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people (Luke 4:18-19).

This was why he could go about doing good and healing all those that were oppressed of the devil, because God was with him. 

This is the anointing. It makes it possible for the sons and daughters of God to manifest their sonship and daughtership. It is the release of God's power that makes performance possible. The anointing is not a doormat issue; it is what activates your Christian stand. It enables you to stand on God's word and to get results. 

No king reigned in Israel without the anointing. Similarly, no prophet stood in his office without it. You never get to occupy your throne without the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is the anointing that marks out a believer. It enthrones the saints of God. It disguises between people. This is why two people may embark on the same project, but have different results. No matter your calling or area of service, the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon your life is the master key to fulfillment and accomplishment. Your enthronement is not by power or by might, but by the spirit of the Lord. 

The anointing is very important in a believer's life. Every believer requires it for sustenance, performance, success, break through and fulfillment. Nothing gets accomplished without it. It is an absolute necessity for a fruitful Christian living. 

   "And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing (Isaiah 10:27). 

The obstacles are cleared off, the mountains are brought low, and the Red Sea paves way, all because of the anointing. Only the anointing can destroy the yoke, no matter what the yoke is. 

How much break through you experience in life is determined by the level of the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon your life. Jesus charged the disciples not to go witnessing until they were endued with power from on high. The kingdom of God is not in words, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power. Without the anointing, the disciples were incompetent to operate in their offices and ministries. Likewise the kings and prophets of old. 

Anointing is for performance. No anointed man can retain the anointing without putting it to work. Lack of use results in decay, while acting use results in maturity. The anointing of God upon your life will only increase as a result of using it. 

If you go to sleep with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, it will also go to sleep in you. The anointing is giving for a purpose. Jesus said: he has anointed me to.... 

He had a task to accomplish with it. He was anointed for a mission.
