RESPECT THE ANOINTING
Memorise: Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. Psalm 105:15
Read: 1st Samuel 24:1-6, Bible in one year: Joshua 15-17, Matthew 21:18-32
There is a saying that the anointing you don’t respect will never work for you. When Elisha was following Elijah from one point to the other, the fifty sons of the prophet who were at Jericho were waiting to see the outcome, expecting that the relationship would end hopelessly. They even confronted Elisha and reminded him that his shine would soon be over because his master would soon be taken away. In 2nd King 2:15, after they saw that a superior anointing had been transferred to Elisha, voluntarily, they all bowed before him. When the Holy Spirit comes upon an individual, he is no longer the same, irrespective of his age, status or qualifications. Despite all the activities of Saul in trying to destroy David, David still respected the anointing on Saul’s life, even though his activities were incongruent with the word of God. For those who respect the anointing, God has a way of changing death to life for them. He has a way of making their enemies to become their servants. The same sword that Goliath wanted to use in eliminating David was that David is this: David fought only the battles he could win. When you are rebelling against the leader God has put over you because of his firmness, you are already fighting a battle you can’t win. You cannot fight against the anointed of God and win because God has already decreed it.
God fought for David throughout his sojourn. Whenever God decides to fight for someone, the battle is always very short and victory is assured. The person that God is fighting for may not even need to do anything at all other than just wait for victory. In one of our monthly Holy Ghost services held at the Redemption Camp, some agents of darkness lined themselves up around the place from which I ascend to the pulpit. I knew of this opposition because of the spiritual gift of discernment. In the midst of being lost in the though of what to do, I committed the message to the Lord in prayer. The Lord told me to go ahead and preach despite the opposition. He told me that His anointing upon my head is able to make my cup run over in the presence of my enemies. To the glory of God, the Lord took control of everything and His people were mightily blessed on that day. When the anointing comes upon your head by faith, you will never be the same again. The cup of this unction and power of the Lord will overflow of your head in the presence of your enemies. The uncommon anointing will break every yoke, heal every sickness, cure the incurable, set the captives free, raise the dead and enable you to rule in the midst of your enemies.
Have you partaken in rebellion against the anointed of God in any way? Repent and be converted today.
