GLORIOUS WORD DEVOTIONAL
IN THE DAY OF HIS ANOINTING
(1 John 2:27) “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
In the Old Testament section of the Bible, we see different categories of people such as the King, the Priest, and certain people anointed with the Holy anointing oil into special offices for God’s people. But Isaiah being a Prophet of God saw that a day was coming which would be called the day of His anointing where yokes and burdens would be destroyed. In Isaiah 10:27, the Bible reports that ‘It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil’. This anointing oil was symbolic of the Holy Ghost. Since the Holy Ghost has come, it means the anointing has also come. See, Apostle James even prescribed that if a Christian is sick, the elders could pray the prayer of faith over him and anoint such a one with the anointing oil in the name of the Lord to break the yoke of sickness over such ones (James 5:14-15).
Apostle John took things higher by telling us that the presence of the anointing (Holy Ghost) in us is enough to teach us all things (1 John 2:27).What a day! What a season! What an age! We are in the day of His anointing. In this day, you may not necessarily use anointing oil, No! The Holy Spirit is the anointing. With Him in you and upon you, you have stepped into the day of His anointing. Start worshipping Him and thank Him for the anointing.
Confession: The day of which Isaiah spoke of where he said yokes shall be destroyed because of the anointing is today. It is my day of His anointing. Today, the power of the Holy Ghost will work for me speedily. When I command there shall be a performance. Halleluyah!
Say this if you have never been born again. I declare from today that Jesus Christ is my Lord and I believe that God raised Him from the dead.
You can begin to attract God’s goodness into your life from today.
