1 John 2:20;27 But ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye know all things. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Isaiah 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
The Anointing is the Presence and Power of God in manifestation. 1 John says you have an Anointing from the Holy One. Gods Anointing does not come from man, it comes from Heaven. It’s not about who laid hands on you to impart a spiritual gift, EVERY good and perfect Gift comes from the Father of Lights. Of course God can use man to impart to you, but it ultimately comes from God.
In 2019, we need to see an increase of Gods Anointing on every Believer. The Anointing is not hype or professionalism. The soldiers in Israel carried gold shields up until the day the enemy came and stole them. They replaced those shields with brass. They looked like gold, but they weren’t true gold. Many in the Church have substituted gold from brass. They look Anointed, talk Anointed, but there’s no Anointing. Don’t settle for a substitute this year, don’t settle for brass when God has gold for you, don’t allow the devil or you flesh to rob you of your enheritance! This is the year for every Believer to rise up and take their place as Sons of God! The whole earth is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God (Romans 8:19)!
1. It’s a relationship, not a formula, not rituals.
The Anointing comes out of your relationship with God. Things don’t just happen. Everything you experience with God, comes out of your relationship with Him. Some people try to reach God with formulas or rituals. Entire religions are based around fulfilling rituals. But, God desires a relationship with His people that is not based on some works program. If your relationship with God is just Sunday Morning church, then that’s as far as your going to go. But if your relationship with God overflows into your workplace, and family, and is a daily walk, then you can expect to see Gods power every day!
2. Hunger and Thirst
Jesus said in Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”. Being filled and flooded with God means you need to hunger after Him, and desire more. Imagine being a man lost in a desert, and you haven’t had water in days. Nothing in the world matters other than the next drink. As the deer pants for the water, so our soul should long after Him!
3. Be a Worshipper
Psalms says God inhabits the praises of His people. Worship is the highest form of prayer, because you’re just telling Him how awesome He is. Worship Him daily, not just in Church. It will invite His Presence if your life!
