Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

February 24: Anointing for Exploits

“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the HOLY GHOST and with POWER: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” – Act 10:38

Read:? Ephesians 1:19-22; Isaiah 59:19; Daniel 11:32

Whether we like it or not, you and I are going to face obstacles as we pursue our God-given destinies. The devil is going to come against you in many ways and through many people. Some of those people will not realize they are being used as instruments to attack you, and may even think they are doing the right thing. However, regardless of how the enemy attacks, there is an anointing from the Holy Spirit on our lives that help us overcome. Many times the reason we lose our battles is because we either don?t employ this anointing, or we are ignorant of our position in the spirit realm. The Bible says Jesus has been set far above all principalities and powers, and we are set there with Him! So develop a different image of yourself today. Get rid of that victim mentality, and get back in the fight for your destiny. Employ the anointing of the Holy Spirit and take the victory ordained for you.

That anointing will enable you to do amazing things. You will find it as supernatural empowerment to solve difficult problems, defeat strong oppositions, and do the impossible.? Don?t allow that power to lie dormant in you. The Amplified Bible says in Philippians 4:13, ?I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me. I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me??? Some practices in our lives such as consistent prayer, fasting, absolute devotion to the Word of God, praying in tongues etc. will enhance that empowerment. Some other practices such as disobedience, sin, inconsistent prayer life and lack of devotion to the Word will hinder that anointing. You will not end up a disgrace in the battles of life in Jesus Name. Amen.
