LEADERSHIP AMD ANOINTING
Memory Verse: Thou anointest my
head with oil; my cup runneth
over. -Psalm 23:5b
Read: 2 Samuel 5:1-3
1 Then came all the tribes of Israel
to David unto Hebron, and spake,
saying, Behold, we are thy bone
and thy flesh.
2 Also in time past, when Saul was
king over us, thou wast he that
leddest out and broughtest in
Israel: and the Lord said to thee,
Thou shalt feed my people Israel,
and thou shalt be a captain over
Israel.
3 So all the elders of Israel came
to the king to Hebron; and king
David made a league with them in
Hebron before the Lord: and they
anointed David king over Israel.
Message:
Some people hide under the fuel
that they have been previously
anointed, and by this, pre-suppose
that they do not need any further
anointing. The truth is that God
gives extra anointing to those
whom he wants to give extra
blessings and glory. Perhaps you
have
discovered that God has ordained
you to be great: you still need to
wait for the anointing. The fact
that God has deposited the seed
of
greatness in your life does not
mean that you have arrived. You
need the anointing to fulfil your
vision and achieve your destiny (2
Samuel 5:1-3). The new anointing
that God is going to add to your
life is going to complete what He
has started in your life. One of
the reasons why the anointing is
so important is that whatever is
anointed cannot be reversed by
the enemy.
From the scriptures, we
understand that David was
anointed not just once, or twice,
but three times. Whenever God
decides to favour
someone, and He decides to
demonstrate this by anointing the
person whom He has chosen over
and over again, His intention is to
completely silence the enemy and
grant victory and blessings to His
people. God gives extra anointing
to those whom He wants to
give extra blessings and glory. The
moment God anoints you, a decree
goes out from His throne room to
back you up. All the
negative forces of the universe are
commanded to steer clear of the
anointed (Psalm 105:14-15).
“He suffered no man to do them
wrong: yea, he reproved kings for
their sakes; Saying, Touch not
mine anointed, and do my
prophets
no harm.”
Tragically, not all heads are ready
to receive the anointing. There
were many children in the
favoured family of Jesse, but only
one of
them received the anointing. As a
leader, you cannot decide to do
whatever you feel like doing and
yet expect to receive God’s
anointing. The anointing of God is
available for those who qualify for
it. Are you one of them? Each of
the sons of Jesse was eager to
receive the anointing, but all their
heads except that of David were
rejected. May your head never
refuse the anointing in Jesus’
Name. The heads of the seven
sons of Jesse must have refused
the anointing because God knew
certain things about them, which
perhaps, no one knew. Are there
things God knows about you which
men do not know? If they are
negative things, you can be sure it
will disqualify you when it matters
most.
Prayer Point:
Father, I present my head for your
fresh anointing for greatness;
anoint me till my cup runs over, in
Jesus’ Name.
