Topic: What Attracts The Anointing
Today Wednesday September 13, 2017
SCRIPTURE: So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah. 1 Samuel 16:13 (NIV).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It does not matter where you are kept, your portion and place in God cannot be taken by another person.
The Anointing, which is the Presence of God with a man, is a non-negotiable requirement in the fulfilment of destiny. Everyone needs the Oil in order to fulfil God’s purpose for their life on earth.
However, God does not anoint people anyhow. God’s oil only falls on the right heads.
In 1 Samuel 16, God was in search of someone to anoint in order to take the place of the disobedient king Saul. So, all the sons of Jesse were presented before Prophet Samuel to be anointed as king but the anointing could not be poured on any of them because they were the wrong heads. Eventually, David who was forgotten was the right person and the Anointing came upon him.
It is very important to note that when you make up your mind to do the Will of God, it does not matter where you are kept, your portion and place in God cannot be taken by another person. Your place can only be taken by another person if you fail to rise up to take your responsibilities.
Beloved, ensure that you maintain a solid relationship with God. Instead of struggling to compete and contend with men, give your life to the service of God.
Remember this: It does not matter where you are kept, your portion and place in God cannot be taken by another person.
1. Make up your mind to be the right candidate for the anointing.
2. Develop a strong relationship with God at the place of prayer.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask that You make me the candidate for Your Anointing. Give me the grace to maintain a righteous life, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
