April 24 Sunday - 2016 | Today's Rhapsody of Realities | Topic - Be Faithful With The Anointing


Opening Scripture

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you…(1 John 2:27).

As a child of God, there’s an anointing on your life; it’s a divine enablement. Many mistake the anointing for the Spirit, but the anointing isn’t the Spirit. The Spirit gives the anointing; the anointing is a divine power. It’s that power of God that heals, delivers, removes burdens, and causes you to prosper. It brings you victory. It opens doors for you. It uplifts you, and causes you to fulfil the will of the Father. It accomplishes works beyond your human ability.

Another beautiful thing is that the anointing on your life can increase. Sometimes, people want to do more; they want to make more impact with the Gospel by reaching more people. Yes; that’s possible and commendable, but you need increased grace. God will have to increase the authority given to you; but first, you must be faithful with what you already have. If you’re faithful in using what you currently have, then He’ll cause a new anointing to come on you.

If you’re a leader in the house of God, for instance, and the Lord has committed fifty members to you to lead, be committed in praying and interceding for those fifty as you would for fifty thousand. If you’re not faithful with the fifty, even if you fast and pray for increase in membership, it may never happen, because the anointing can’t be increased without faithfulness..

Jesus said in Luke 16:10, "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much." It’s a spiritual principle. Choose to be faithful with whatever the Lord has committed to your hands. Don’t despise little beginnings, because your faithfulness with, and to that which may seem "little" today is what will take you to the next level.


PRAYER


Dear Lord, I thank you for your anointing upon my life, and for the privilege of being a minister of reconciliation. My spiritual fervour is at its peak, because I’m full of the Spirit. I’m faithful and effective in the ministry and assignment committed into my hands, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.


FURTHER STUDY:
1 Corinthians 4:1-2;
1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Luke 16:10;
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

1 Peter 4:10;
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
