Yesterday, I spoke to you on the anointing upon, today I will like to show you on the anointing within and its characteristics.
THE ANOINTING WITHIN:
i.This is the true strength of the spirit man: This anointing is a personal anointing developed by individuals as they walk with God. It is developed in the place of prayer, study of God’s word, fasting, worship, right living, and integrity. 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.
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.
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: If this anointing is there, activated and flourishing, it means you are still okay with God.
vi.It is the strength with which you will do your destiny and walk the road of destiny: 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: Father, 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.
