Yesterday, I spoke to you on the anointing upon. Today, I will like to show you the anointing within and its characteristics.
The Anointing Within:
i. This is the true strength, the strength of the spirit man: This anointing is a personal anointing developed by individuals as they walk with God. It has nothing to do with the calling as all believers can develop it. It is developed in the place of prayer, study of God’s word, fasting, worship, right living, and integrity. As a child of God who develops a life of consistent walk with the Lord, this anointing gradually builds up in the spirit of the believer. This is the anointing that Hebrews 1:9 is talking about.
ii. It is the true measure of your spiritual capacity/strength: Whatever you are able to accomplish through this anointing is what you truly are. As a matter of fact, it is safer to have this anointing than the anointing upon the calling. While the anointing upon the calling can give you a false picture of who you are, this anointing clearly shows you your real level.
iii. It is not easily defeated by the enemy: This anointing builds a strong defense mechanism in a child of God. In fact, this anointing is what protects the anointing upon the calling. When you see a child of God who is called and carries the anointing and yet misbehaves, this is the anointing that they did not develop. I can sincerely tell you that a Christian who does not carry an anointing upon the calling but takes his time developing the anointing within has a very strong chance of making it in life and destiny when you compare him to a Christian who is called of God, anointed but does not pay attention to the building up of the spirit man.
iv. Unlike the anointing upon, this is not a divine donation: It builds up in the place of personal fellowship and walk with the Lord.
v. It is a true measure of your relationship with God: The anointing within is a true measure of your relationship with God. If this anointing is there, activated and flourishing, it means you are still okay with God. But if you check your spirit and you do not feel okay, the strength of your spirit is not as strong as it should be; it means that your relationship is not okay with God. Every time Samson misbehaved, he still arose, stirred up himself and the anointing still came upon him. And because of that he was deceived thinking he was still okay with God whereas, he was already on his way out.
vi. It is the strength with which you will do your destiny and walk the road of destiny: This is the strength with which you will drive your destiny and walk its road. This was the strength that God infused into Elijah when he was running away from Jezebel. This anointing helps you to walk the difficult road of your destiny and still come out strong and successful.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray that you will help me to pay attention to my spirit-man and develop it into a form that can take all that you have for me in life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
