“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” 1 John 2:27
You have just been treated like royalty with a sumptuous meal and you are reclining at the table enjoying your dining experience and the lingering taste of your dessert. Life is good, but it is about to get better.
Your Shepherd comes with the horn of oil and what does he do? He begins to anoint your head with His oil.
You thought that the prepared table was the pinnacle, but your Shepherd is not finished with you as yet. He took care of the physical and now it is on to the spiritual. Like David, when he was anointed to be King over Israel, you are being anointed for the fulfillment of your destiny.
God is showing you exceptional favour. He is not just pouring oil on you, but he is pouring His love on you. He is giving you the oil of gladness, for the spirit of heaviness.
He is putting His stamp of approval on you, declaring you to be His publicly: “You are mine!!!”
What an experience. What a place to be. The God of all gods, the King of all kings is anointing your head right now with oil. What more can you ask?
You are receiving the anointing that breaks every yoke and removes every burden. It is your kingly anointing.
Accept it. Enjoy it. Protect it. Use it. You did not ask for it, your Shepherd gave it to you. Do not waste it. Thank God for it.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed me. I will walk in my anointing.
