SCRIPTURE: “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” – Psalm 45:7 (KJV).
Anointing can be described as divine electricity. This description will help us understand how important anointing is. If a person is not pure, yet is anointed, the anointing will kill the fellow, because if you mishandle electricity, you will be electrocuted. Samson was highly anointed but spent time with harlots. A man of God who commits adultery has set himself up for destruction. In other words, the combination of anointing and sinfulness will produce a casualty while anointing with purity will produce great and long lasting results.
For example, Abraham’s anointing was that of prosperity (Genesis 22:17-18) and it was transgenerational because he trained his children in the way of the Lord (Genesis 18:19). Abraham became great, his son became very great and his grandson Jacob became exceedingly great. His great-grandson Joseph picked up the anointing and God used him mightily as well.
Christians need anointing to execute their respective divine assignments. You may have heard the story of two people who sang Psalm 23 – one a professional singer who sang beautifully and everybody clapped, the other, an old man who sang the same Psalm 23 and had everyone on their knees, worshipping God. One sang professionally, the other with anointing and their results were different. So if you are a chorister, you definitely need anointing. Psalm 24:3-4 tells us the kind of people who can stand in God’s presence; so ushers also clearly need anointing. Prayer warriors need anointing because Romans 8:26 says we pray with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus was anointed with the Holy Ghost before He started off His ministry (Acts 10:38). If the Lord did not perform a single miracle until the Holy Spirit came upon Him, surely you need anointing too.
Open Heaven 29 April 2023 PRAYER POINT:
