43. You are anointed

Jesus nourishes us and takes care of us. We are partakers of Him and members of His body and therefore we can partake in His Divine nature and be as He is in this world. We can share the oracles of God with this world and be free to be like Him and to care for this world. We learned all of that last week. And because we are part of Him, we are anointed like He was:

"But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things." 1 John 2:20

All of us as Christians have an anointing from God. Not just certain special people but all of us. Why? Because the Anointed One lives within us. And notice, due to our anointing we know all things. This corresponds with 1 Corinthians 2:16 that tell us that we have the mind of Christ. And by default if you have the mind of Christ, you know all things. You see the more time you spend with God, the more you read the Bible and truly get to know Him, the more you will start to believe what is true of you in the spirit. And when you start to believe what is true of you in the spirit, true wisdom will manifest and His Spirit will start flowing in mighty torrents through you achieving His will in this world. You simply need to believe that you are anointed.

And once you believe that you are anointed and you allow Him to flow through you, you will go out and change the world, bit by bit. Jesus will be by your side and nothing shall by any means hurt you:

"Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Luke 10:19

As His anointed ones, He has also given us authority to go out and be His hands and feet in this earth. Once again we only have this authority because He lives within us and He is King of all kings, supreme over all. And He works through us. Do not even stress about how you are going to share His Word and do what He would have done, because at the end of the day it is not you doing it. It is Him and all Him. And therefore He should receive all the glory forevermore! You just need to be open to be used.

Therefore we need to exercise ourselves towards godliness. We must exercise our faith muscles by reading and doing the Word of God.

"...exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come." 1 Timothy 4:7, 8

Godliness is profitable both for now and for the life hereafter. This life is already part of the heavenly life. We are part of His Kingdom now already, and therefore we need to start acting as if we are. We need to start acting as if this is true and portray the characteristics of a Godly life. We are His Kingdom representatives. Stand tall and present His values to this world. Whether you are in the board room, the class room, the shops, the sporting field or at home. You need to represent Him in all aspects.

We are part of His family and therefore He can be trusted. After all His main aim for us is to love Him, to enjoy life and to present Him to the world. It is as simple as that. I would like to end off with a verse that confirms that God is a good God and that He supplies for us so that we can enjoy this life:

"Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy." 1 Timothy 6:17

Stand up in your anointing and be like Him in this world, loving, full of peace and enjoying all things.

Thank you Father for all Your riches. Thank you that You give us so much. Thank you for the anointing and authority that we have due to Your wonderful Son Jesus Christ. We praise and honour You forever and ever. Amen
