Word for Today: Anointing (6)-Anointing above your peers.
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
“Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows” ( Hebrews 1:9).
God is eager to take you away from the crowd, clean you up and anoint you above your peers. However, there is a price you must pay: love righteousness and hate iniquities.
Love for righteousness may not be too difficult to understand or appreciate, but hatred for iniquities is poorly understood by many with the church. Many people will observe things that are contrary to the word of word and they ignore it with the attitude of “it no concern me’. How do you react to things that are not in line with the the word of God? Do you laugh over them or speak the word of God against them? Boldness is a fundamental requirement in our walk with the Lord. Don’t watch evil activities around you and do nothing. Learn to deal with your fears. God has not given us the spirit of fear…2Timothy 1:7. Spiritual violence is expected of you in the kingdom.
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Mathew 11:12)
Ask God to open your eyes, that you may learn to love righteousness and hate iniquities.
Have a Spirit-filled new day.
Thank you Jesus .
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, we receive the grace to love righteousness and hate iniquities in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
