Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preached 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” (KJV).
To be anointed means to be set a part for service. The Holy Spirit then gives the anointed one the empowerment to work in the anointing. The Hebrew translation for the verb to anoint is mashiach and is the root of messiah, which means “anointed one.” The exclusive exercise of anointing, by pouring oil on the head, was used as a symbolic act for officially designating and setting apart a person for a certain, public, leadership function in the community. It was a one-time event much like an inauguration of a new president. This anointing was usually appointed to kings, priests, & prophets.
Some of us are anointed to be an usher, but because we do not like the uniforms we will not usher. Some of us are anointed to sing in the choir, but because we cannot lead every song we will get mad and will not sing at all. Some of us have been anointed to preach the gospel, but will not accept our calling because we are worried about what people will say.
What we need to understand is the anointing is not for you. It is to bring deliverances to the captives. We thank God for the anointing. The anointing is to bring deliverance, healed wounded and the sick.
When the anointing is over you, it does not matter what you are going through, your anointing will see you through. The way to confuse the enemy is through your worship because you are anointed serve!
I thank you for the anointing you have placed on my life. With the anointing upon my life, no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall be condemn (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV). Your anointing is powerful enough to declare dominion and authority over the enemy! Activate your anointing daily by serving God’s people. You are ANOINTED TO SERVE!
