To be an anointed person is to be set apart, empowered, or protected for God’s divine purpose. The act of anointing or being anointed is being smeared or rubbed with oil. As you build your faith by feeding your mind and heart with God’s word (Romans 10:17), the anointing touch of Jesus Christ becomes activated in your life, enabling you to do God’s work, for the anointing of God is the Holy Spirit.
Internal conflict occurs when we are not in agreement with the call God has placed on our lives. Choosing to focus on God’s word, expressing your faith (Heb. 11:6), and walking in His word every day will activate God’s anointing. God’s anointing flows to those who hunger and seek (Acts 17:27) the presence of the Holy Spirit. The anointing has less to do with the person that it flows through than it does with the person who receives the anointing, and the One who sent it, God Almighty.
Anointing comes with a cost, but we shouldn’t let the price to pay for the anointing blind us from the calling on our lives, for when we agree with the anointing, to be set apart for divine use, we align ourselves with the promises of God. It becomes difficult to endure the cost of the anointing because it’s easier for us to step out of our anointing, and blend in with the world (Rom. 12:2).
The way we handle life will determine how God can use us to function in the anointing for divine use. God’s anointing helps you become more like Him, and it makes the impossible in your life possible. To be set apart and walk in the anointing of God will set you up for success.
