I remember mentioning in the last write up, that you can’t be more anointed than you already are. Yes, it wasn’t a mistake I wrote that. It is the truth. I know some of you are like “Uhh, how could you limit my possibilities?”. I actually enjoy killing sacred cows. Let me even shock you some more. No one that has ever been a Christian or will ever be is more anointed than you. Yes, I just said that. No apologies at all.
I’ll try helping you understand this by asking and answering a question for you. Is anyone more anointed than the Holy Spirit? Is there? No, right? Good. The Holy Ghost is not even anointed, He’s the Anointing Himself. Acts 10:38 tells us
38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
As a born again Christian, that Anointing doesn’t come on you once in a while, like some familiar spirit, it’s a resident Spirit, and stays, abides, takes perpetual habitation, domiciles and lives inside you. Boy, I’m so excited! 1 John 2:27. How could we be so anointed, yet so powerless? because we have waited so long for a feeling to feel anointed and do great works. Remember I mentioned in the last write up, that it’s not by feeling but by Faith.
Do you believe The Holy Spirit, the Power of the Godhead lives in you? I didn’t say, do you feel? I said do you believe? If you do believe that, then step up your game and act accordingly. The power that rose Jesus from the dead dwells within you and longs for you to tap into that power mine, by simply paying attention to Him. Romans 8:11
Phm 1:6 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
The second point I’ll add today about how to stay in the simplicity in Christ is;
- Know God first as Love: I know God reveals different dimensions of Himself at different times and seasons. Consuming fire, The Lion, The Judge, etc, but it’s important you relate with God first as Love, then others will follow. An earthly father who reveals the Fire in him to his new born child, sure needs some months in Jail, but we accuse God of the same. God loves you. He won’t hurt you. He won’t ever leave you. He ALWAYS does what’s best for you. He has great plans for you. He wants to fellowship with you.
God told me something recently, He said Love is predictable. Hate is totally unpredictable. 1cor13 explains the confines of love, it’s totally predictable. God is predictable too, because He’s Love. You know what to expect when around someone you know loves you. It’s simple to relate with someone who loves you. You know He won’t knock you out if you miss a line in a scriptures while praying, you know He won’t condemn you, He has already accepted you. Love is predictable, we know what to expect from people who love us, but when it comes to God, “He works in mysterious ways”. That’s why He contrasts Himself with earthly fathers, not compare, but contrast.
If earthly fathers, are as good to their children as they are, how much more Love Himself. This will simplify your relationship with God tremendously. No pressures, no threats, just Love, and more Love. This will motivate you more than all the threats and pressures you’ve received from the church all your life. You’d pay more tithe, you’d attend more services, you’d evangelise more, you’d love Him more, but it all starts with Him first loving you.
