Having the proper garments is an important criteria for the anointing. If you will carry the anointing that produces increase, you must get the garments on because wherever a garment is missing in your life, is the exact place where the devil will come in from.

2.The garment of faithfulness, integrity and dependability – you receive this while serving under another man. Unfaithfulness is the assassin of success in the life of many people. Faithfulness is what keeps a man accountable.  Faithfulness is what makes your gift to continue to be a blessing. Joseph received the garment of faithfulness in the house of Potiphar.  Until you have worked for the success of someone else, you won’t have the ingredient to make yourself successful. Things increase in the hand of the faithful. The worst enemy that you can have in any project is a man of ability without faithfulness.  Judas lacked the garment of faithfulness in another man’s things. 

One mark of immaturity is unfaithfulness. There is a period that God gives room for you to be a child, and there is a period that He expects you to have grown up. Maturity is not seen in grey hair, it is seen in faithfulness. 

3.Garment of intimacy with God – this is a garment you receive in isolation. When God wants to shape you for destiny, he puts you in solitary refinement, just like hardened criminals are put in solitary confinement. It is in isolation that you develop your gift. What you are intimate with will determine what you are pregnant with in life and what you eventually birth forth.

The garment of intimacy was missing in the life of Saul, the first king of Israel. He never called God, the Lord my God. Instead, He referred to God as the Lord thy God, whenever he spoke with Samuel. David with all his mistakes had the garment of intimacy with God, he could declare boldly in Psa.23:1; "The Lord is my shepherd."

Prayer: Father, take filthy garments off me and cloth me with the right garments that will attract divine oil upon my head in Jesus’ name. Amen.
