Secret Of The Anointing

Text: “You loved righteousness and hated lawless behaviour. That is why God, your God, has anointed you with oil instead of your companions.” Hebrews 1:9 (Common English Bible)

Friends, do you need more anointing in your life? Then we need to take a cue from the life of our master, who revealed to us how to live in God’s presence. That is to love righteousness and hate lawless behaviour (lawlessness).

And for you and I to receive this anointing (abiding presence), we need to separate ourselves unto God. In Acts 10:38, we are told ‘how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.’ And we know that God in us abhors sharing the same space with iniquity therefore we need to drop every form that defiles the body, soul and spirit and simply love righteousness.
Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee” (2 Corinthians 1:21-22). God calls us unto Himself and in this month of sanctification, let us make a concerted effort to draw near to him and let go of all unrighteousness.

LEARN and APPLY: To get more of His anointing (presence), learn to separate yourself from everything that can defile.

Pray: Lord help me to see all the weight and sin that I need to drop for Your anointing to become more in my life and ministry, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
