There are two kinds of anointing; the anointing upon and the anointing within. Let me take some time to explain them to you.
THE ANOINTING UPON
i.It comes with the calling and destiny of God for a man: Everyone that is called of God for a particular assignment manifests it. That was the anointing that was noticed upon Samson in Judges 13:24-25.
ii.It is a divine donation of God: A man does not have to pray for it before it comes.
iii.It is not a true measure of your walk with God: It is not a true measure of your walk, state, level or relationship with God. Even if a man is living in sin, this anointing will still manifest.
iv.It is not a function of your relationship with God: It is not a measure of a man’s true spiritual state with God. Whether you pray or not, this anointing will manifest the moment you are carrying a calling.
v.It can be defeated by the enemy: Do not misunderstand me, the enemy cannot defeat the power of God, but a man who places emphasis upon this anointing and does not develop a walk with the Lord can be defeated.
vi.It is not the anointing to walk the road of your destiny: If as a man or woman that is called by the Lord you want to fulfil your destiny, you will have to go through the process of God for your life. That anointing is meant to minister to the need of others.
I want to encourage you today, do not be deceived by the anointing upon your life, do not minister to others at the expense of your personal walk with God.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I pray for grace to pay attention to my life and my relationship with you so that the enemy will not take advantage of me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
