Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
Everyone born of God is born an overcomer, and is by heritage destined to live a triumphant life (1 John. 5:4). No child of God should be struggling to survive or be a liability, when he should be an asset to the kingdom of God and his generation. God has created you, not for troubles, but for triumph.
However, there is what you must encounter to establish your desired breakthroughs. It is God’s provision for your manifestation as His son. When businessmen operate under it, they become irresistible. When pastors get connected to it, they never lack what to teach their congregation, neither can their messages ever be dry.
That divine provision for triumphant living is the anointing. It is what brings an end to struggling, and ushers a man into an era of sweatless triumphs. Contrary to popular beliefs, the anointing is not limited to ministry, nor is it solely for preaching or teaching. The anointing is meant to make you a man or woman of exploits in whatever area or field you are in. Once the anointing comes upon a man, no one can mistake him for a byword and a proverb; rather, he becomes a man in charge, with everything at his command.
Returning with my wife from a trip to New York sometime ago, a woman at the ticket counter asked for our tickets, looked at them and said, “Please we have a place for you in first class.” But I said, “I don’t have a first class ticket.” She replied, “I know, but please come to the first class section.” She was literally pleading with us!
There is something about the anointing: it removes stains, eradicates stress and refreshes you. It also ensures that you ascend your God-ordained throne, where everything answers to you at all times. There is, therefore, no substitute for the anointing, because its absence signals the presence of frustration. When it comes upon you, whether you are wearing slippers or shorts, you will be distinguished, and men, no matter their colour, will do obeisance to you.
Perhaps as you read this article, your life has been characterized by breakdowns – in your health, business, Family, finances, etc. The good news is that the coming of the anointing upon you will bring to an end the breakdowns of your life, and grant you perpetual breakthroughs, in Jesus’ mighty name!
The anointing guarantees your protection:
He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
The anointing quickens your body:
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
It also sharpens your mind and makes you of a quick understanding:
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
The anointing teaches you 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.
1 John 2:27
1 John 2:27
The anointing is, therefore, indispensable in the life of a believer. I believe you will have an encounter with that anointing in this text, and your life will not remain the same again. Please, say this prayer:
“Lord, give me an encounter with the help of Your Spirit via this message. I am tired of crawling, stagnation and breakdowns. I want to join the company of the high-flyers. I have sweated enough, now it is my turn to enjoy true triumphs. Open me up Lord, I need a definite touch from You. Thank You Lord.”
