TOPIC :THE WONDERS OF ANOINTING (III)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 2, Exodus 3, Exodus 4, Luke 8, Luke 9, Luke 10
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 17:34-37 (KJV)
34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.
37 David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee.
MEMORY VERSE: “Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said,” – 2 Samuel 23:1
When God anoints a man, His undeniable glory will manifest in his life.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I COMMAND THE WICKED POWERS OF YOUR FATHER’S HOUSE TO BE WASTED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
One of the wonders of the anointing is that it can make a man do supernatural things. In today’s Fire Scripture we saw a lion which came into the sheepfold to steal a lamb. David went after it, caught it, and punched it to death. That is a wonder because at this particular time, David was about seventeen years old, less than twenty years and he also killed a bear.
He was a young man but the anointing made him to do supernatural things that were beyond his age. He, David, must have been filled with the anointing.
Another wonderful thing about the anointing is that it gives you the supernatural strength to outrun and outwit your enemies-1 Kings 18:45-46. After Elijah had wasted the wicked powers and prophets of Baal holding Israel to ransom, he needed to pray for rain to come after three and half years of drought and famine. Eventually, he had to leave Mount Carmel for Jezreel.
The Bible says in verse 46: “And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah: and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.” He outran Ahab who was on a chariot because of the anointing upon him.
Dearly beloved, there is no end to what the anointing can do. When the anointing comes upon you, it will enable you to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. John 15:16: “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
Dear reader, you need the anointing to fulfil your purpose. You need the anointing to break your yokes and to destroy your enemies that have purposed to hinder your destiny. Come unto Jesus today and He will touch you.
