Daily Devotional – 5/21/15 “It’s your anointing … “

We, as children of God are … too anointed to keep allowing disappointment to steal our appointment. We are too blessed to keep allowing stress to put our feet in mess. We should be actively living and that starts by forgiving. We’ve been given a foot start in the race to not appreciate God’s grace. Even the battle we’re fighting, it’s already won; it was fixed when God sent His only Begotten Son! Yes, God is our all in all, a confident and a provider that doesn’t hold out so why do we doubt? We are too anointed! Please understand this; God’s anointing isn’t limited to those who are charged with His calling of preaching because anointed means to simply be chosen by God. Don’t you know that God uses ordinary folk for extraordinary things? Baby, if God can take a simply nobody like me who wasn’t fitting to live and surely wasn’t ready to die and anoint me; what makes you think He can’t use anybody else? My anointing isn’t based on my merit but it is based on God’s mercy. Chile, if my anointing was dependent upon me, it wouldn’t be nothing compared to the anointing I have by God’s grace! There isn’t anything like the anointing of God.

See, when you are anointed by man they can snatch their anointing away when they feel like it but when you are anointed by God Isaiah 61:1 says, “The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.” When you are anointed by man, you belong to them and they can do with you and to you what they want but when you are anointed by God, He will keep the covenant He made with Abraham and even with Israel when He told them as they wandered from here to there, He allowed no harm to come their way for He gives us the same covering today as in Psalm 105:15 that says, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!” We are His anointed ones, each of us who are in His will! Baby, God’s anointing covers us even when we are in our mess. God’s anointing shields us when the enemy’s battle should have killed us. God’s anointing provides for us when folk talks about us. God’s anointing keeps our mind when everything seems to be going wrong. God’s anointing gives us peace when everywhere we look there is problems. God’s anointing has been given to each of us for 1 John 2:20 says, “But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all have knowledge,” all you have to do is use it. Study God’s word for yourself and allow the anointing of God to flow from you. To be anointed by God is to be chosen by Him and we are His chosen people. Stop minimizing your anointing by tainting it with mess! It’s your anointing …
