Topic: Because Of The Anointing [Thursday April 13, 2017]
“Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. And Elisha said unto her, what shall I do for thee? Tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.” (2 Kings 4:1-2)
Beloved, the woman in the above passage had oil in her house. Oil stands for the anointing. What this means is that she had the anointing in her house but was suffering because she did not know that it was there. She could see the oil but she couldn’t see the anointing. It is a tragedy of our time to see many Christians who have the anointing but are suffering because they do not know that they have it.
The anointing is the authority that God Himself has given to you to destroy every yoke. The Bible says, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”
As a child of God, you are carrying the anointing. It does not matter what kind of evil yoke you are under. I do not care how many devils are following you around. I stand here as a servant of Jehovah and I destroy any evil yoke over your life, in the name of Jesus. Because you are a child of God and have His anointing on you, I declare that you will enter into your inheritance.
Words of Wisdom: The anointing breaks the yoke
Confession/Prayer: My yoke is broken. The anointing has liberated me.
