The Anointing

Read with me, “Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.”
II Corinthians 1:21-22

The anointing has many functions. It is enough, whatever you need. The anointing is for our wellbeing. We can utilise it when in need, physically and emotionally. It is the anointing that breaks the yoke over our lives, and brings peace to our hearts. When we are in need of answers, the anointing serves as a source of truth and information. We can lean into the well-times words the Spirit speaks and experience unbounded freedoms. We lay hands on the sick and the anointing functions to bring about healing. The anointing consecrates and sets us apart; it is the mark on you that says you belong to the Most High. It is the brand of consecration on your life.  It helps us, it guides us, and it leads us.

But you belong. The Holy One anointed you, and you all know it. I haven’t been writing this to tell you something you don’t know, but to confirm the truth you do know, and to remind you that the truth doesn’t breed lies. 1 John 2:20

The anointing binds us, linking us together in Christ. We are of a body, incorporated in anointing, unified by faith, and bound as one with bonds of peace. But this does not negate the reality that we find ourselves as odds with each other now and then. There is a rest that comes from understanding that often times during conflicts it is the anointing brings the peace we desire. Understanding that the Spirit of God brings us answers and solutions makes conflict something we don’t have to fear. We would do well to minister to each other when offended, usher in anointed responses, offering sound truths and advice. The anointing operates when we need it. It operates when we need it most.  In times where our offences demand a pound of flesh, the anointing offers the option of peace that transcends our limited carnal understanding.

While we are joined together, the Spirit also operates, is willing and able. Set as a seal on our hearts, the Spirit guarantees us victory and efficiency against the oppression against us. The Spirit is the aid we need in order to live peacefully. When we are in conflict with others, the Holy Spirit offers us peace and solutions. Why? Because with the Spirit comes an amazing capacity. You are now consecrated and made new, no longer restricted by your own lack of skills, no more limited by your lack of vision. The Holy Spirit teaches us all things. We can ask when we lack wisdom, and He freely and willingly provides in all the areas we have need.

The anointing is the balm we need in conflicts. It is the power to do what the flesh can’t, for both you and the other person. It delivers us from our own limitations and filters. In the anointing, we are free. Allow the anointing to minister to your heart, the truth of how loved you are. Be free from the oppression of opinions.

The anointing is enough.
