SEPTEMBER 22: We Are Anointed
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18, 19
Jesus, as the Son of man, set us an example as to how we should live our lives. He came on a mission from the Father to bring freedom and deliverance to mankind from every kind of curse that darkness had imposed upon man through the fall. He relied upon the Holy Spirit to empower Him to do this. It is the same for us. We are Christians, with the same anointing, or God-given ability to slam the forces of darkness and make them obey the Word of the living God. We must make it our aim to fellowship with God, daily, consistently, in prayer and in the Word and pray for other people to be able to receive the goodness of God through us. This is how the anointing to deliver others is triggered in our lives and becomes vital every day. Take time daily to pray and fellowship with the Father; commit to living by the Word, pray for others on your job, in your neighborhood, in your home, in your school, on the streets; that they will receive the freedom that God has for them. Take dominion over the demons and satan himself, commanding them to loosen their hold from the lives of those you are praying for. Then, make yourself available to bring that deliverance to others through your words and your hands as you minister to them as an anointed man or woman of God.
Scripture reading: 2 Corinthians 4:1-7; John 1:5; Luke 11:5-22
