Daily Devotional – 10/24/16 – “The anointing makes the difference!”

The anointing WILL make the difference, if you let it because God’s anointing, on your life, has the ability to shift your atmosphere. The anointing on your life has the gift to get you recognized in places, you’ve never stepped foot in before. The anointing has the skill to make your name known to folk you’ve never met. The anointing has the power to change your name, your place of residence, your bank account and your destiny. But you have to be able to handle it, wear it right and walk in it because the bible says in James 2:24, “You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.” Baby, you can’t claim you’re anointed and your work doesn’t show it. You can’t speak of the anointing, if there’s no power in your tongue. And you can’t wear the anointing with a jacked up attitude because they don’t mix. What you need to understand is this … God grants us access to the anointing so that we now have the capability to do the things He has entrusted us with. And this is why the anointing has no choice but to make a difference in our lives. See, in my days of living, after truly walking in the anointing, I’ve found out a few things. It wasn’t by accident because the anointing opens our eyes to see things and people for what and who they really are. What do I mean?

— The anointing will get rid of the undercover enemies you’ve been feeding as friends and He’ll show who your real friends are. Don’t miss this though … The anointing also comes with naysayers who act like supporters – You have to stay alert in order to know the difference.

— The anointing will give you a new perspective on the places you’ll go. It won’t stop the messy invitations from being sent, you’ll just have to be mindful of those you accept.

— The anointing will change the direction you’ve been going but it won’t stop the distractions, you have to be careful what you look it.

— The anointing will also change your name but it won’t prevent folk from calling you by your past indiscretions, you’ll need to be mindful of what you answer too!

Beloved, the anointing will make the difference! You will just need to ensure you’re ready to accept the differences? Because when you are, you’ll begin saying like Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
