Let’s get right to it. The extra strength and guidance you need for victory in every aspect of daily life: relationships, work, family, dreams, finances, decisions, wellness, self-esteem – is readily accessible through the power of God and His anointing.
Yes, this anointing is not only responsible for miracles, but it is also necessary to do the following in and through your life:
– heal and restore any type of brokenness
– strengthen and empower your spirit
– overcome and destroy any demonic oppression
– set you free from bondage: emotional, mental or physical
– demonstrate God’s pure love to the world
– help to discern the truth
– guide you to accomplish your purpose in life
Many of us are not aware that we have access to God’s powerful anointing right now! And that God desires us to flow in this anointing every day as we live out His purpose in us. Without it, the challenges of life tend to wear down our faith, distract our attention away from God, and hinder our spiritual progress. (The book of Acts in the bible gives further explanation of God’s anointing.)
Maybe you can relate to being a Christian who has experienced feeling exhausted, frustrated and powerless. You come to a point in which you are no longer thriving. It feels as if you are suffocating in fear, worry, anger and condemnation. You find yourself becoming resentful and bitter; no longer helping others and sharing the love of Christ. Thankfully, God is the ultimate power source to overcome all we will ever encounter in life! This power is essential to living a victorious life. Even better, you and I have access to this power through God’s anointing today!
Any person who has received the gift of salvation also has access to this power. You do not have to be a preacher or work in ministry to be anointed. God can and will work through anyone willing to “work” for Him. He loves you and does not care about your race, age, sex, occupation, status or background – only your heart.
Now it is God who makes both us
and you stand firm in Christ.
He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us,
and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come.
– 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (New International Version)
You can access the anointing of God through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. When you are ready, simply pray and ask God for this powerful gift of being anointed and filled with the Holy Spirit. Once received, continue to seek God and His word to learn more about this extraordinary way of living! He is ready to do a mighty work through you!
