Today we will continue with our study on how to develop the anointing within:
1. A good church life: Another important factor that will make the strength of God increase in you is a good church life. There is a measure of strength that God deposits in you every time you come to the church to fellowship with other believers. There are a number of Christians today that tell you that it is not important to be in church. They sit in their houses on fellowship days to watch the ministration of different men of God.
It is not possible to substitute going to church on Sunday for watching ministration on the television on Sundays. If you are already doing that, I make bold to tell you that the devil is already cheating and setting you up seriously and if you do not reverse it, your spiritual life will crash very soon. If you check well in the Old Testament especially during the movement of the children of Israel in the wilderness, you will discover that whenever the children of Israel were not moving, they camped in a place with the Tabernacle of meeting raised up.
You will see that the cloud of glory always sat on the top of the tabernacle of meeting and not on the house of anybody in Israel. The meaning is this; there are things that God will do in your church that he will not do in the house of any of us. Respect your attendance in church services, God cannot make you a member of a particular church and at the same time ask you to stay back to watch a television programme on Sunday. That is out of order and you know that God is a God of order. Respect your relationship with other members of the church, respect the structure of the church that God has made you a part of and do your very best to respect your pastor. Your church life will shape your life and destiny and determine how far you will go in life and destiny.
2. Quiet time: Your quiet time is a period of the day when you privately retreat to the Lord for a personal fellowship with Him. As simple as it seems to many, it is one of the things that brings a steady supply of strength into your spirit man. Respect your quiet time if you will have strength with God. If you look at the Bible very well, you will discover that everyone who won and prevailed in the Bible have a life of consistent fellowship with the Lord and His Holy Spirit.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive help to continually give myself to strength-generating activities. Help me to refrain from every activity that is capable to sapping or reducing the strength of God in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Bible in a year: Genesis 26:17-27:46, Matthew 9:1-17, Psalm 10:16-18, Proverbs 3:9-10
