Topic: Preserved By The Anointing
SCRIPTURE: 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. – Psalms 105:14-15
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: An anointed person is too defended to be defeated.
Sometime ago, I read a story about the Middle East shepherds, especially in Bible days. From that story, I discovered that those shepherds used to anoint the bodies of their sheep with olive oil, and by so doing, flies and other insects were kept at bay. That way, the insects could not feed on or destroy the bodies of the sheep.
As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual. It is important to know that the Anointing of the Holy Ghost carries unusual preservation power.
The Anointing of the Holy Ghost has the capacity to keep satanic afflictions away from God’s children. The Anointing preserves by placing upon a person the seal of Divine Presence that averts evil. It makes a person’s spirit impregnable and fire-full.
Now, let us look at one of the keys to the Anointing:
The Presence of God
The Anointing is the Presence of God and the Presence of God is the Anointing (Acts 10:38).
Therefore, beloved, press into the Presence of God in prayer, praise and worship, and you will come to the point where accessing the anointing is effortless.
Remember this: an Anointed person is too defended to be defeated.
1. Determine to make God’s Presence your permanent habitation.
2. Determine to be humble in order to attract the anointing.
