The Oil

text size A A A

I love to read particularly anything related to God, prayer, intercession, spiritual warfare, chasing the heart of God etc. My prayer room is filled with such books. Today, I want to share some of the things that struck my heart from reading Carriers of God’s Anointing.

THE OIL

Webster definition of anoint 1: to smear or rub with oil or an oily substance 2a: to apply oil to as a sacred rite especially for consecration b: to choose by or as if by divine election; also: to designate as if by a ritual anointment .

God gave very specific directions for the preparation of the oil use for anointing leaders, kings etc. Each ingredient different, serving a different purpose. Each ingredient of the oil was valuable, costly and rare. As it is in the natural, so it is spiritually.

 I don’t know of anyone who truly loves God that does not desire to be anointed. The anointing is valuable, costly and rare. There is a high cost for the anointing. You witness pastors, leaders, intercessors who are carriers of God’s anointing and see the manifestation of that anointing through miracles, signs, wonders, healing and deliverance of others.

You may say to yourself I wish I had that anointing. Well, look closely at their lives. As you examined their lives if they are truly anointed and not just gifted you will find that they have experienced many disappointments, challenges, setbacks and struggles. Rom 12:11They overcame by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony and they love not their lives unto the death. Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Look at the life they live and you will be able to distinguish the gifted from the anointed.

Valuable, costly and rare. The question you have to ask yourself is “Do I really want the anointing”? Not everyone can handle the anointing. There is a high price to pay for the anointing. When you ask for the anointing, you must be prepared to take a hit from the enemy. For each level of anointing there will be another Devil to withstand you. You must be properly armed and dressed for the battle to withstand the challenge that will come against you.

SPEAK THE ANSWER NOT THE PROBLEM. THE ANSWER IS THE WORD OF GOD. Heavenly father we pray for the courage and strength to seek your anointing. Make us and mold us after your will. You have paid the price for our souls and we no longer belong to ourselves. We present our bodies to you to be your temple that you may do what you will in our lives. We have counted the cost and concluded that the anointing is worth the price. We boldly come to you and seek daily the fresh oil anointing that we may become a terror to the enemy. Anoint us that we may be the vessel that you work through destroying yokes off your people and removing burdens from their shoulders. We pray that you anoint us to love and worship you. We understand that the anointing is not for us but it is for your service We desire to please you and be warriors in your army marching upon your command to destroy the enemy’s kingdom and set the captives free. We dare to call upon your name for your word declares that when we call upon you, you will answer us and show us great and mighty things. We give you all the glory, honor, praise that belongs to you for you alone is worthy.
