KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 5:15 KJV “Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.”

Apostle Peter was mightily used by God in the early days of the church. Our key scripture shows how many hearing of God’s power in Peter’s ministry, brought the sick, who waited on the path that, Peter would be using, so that his shadow may fall on them. The scripture said, Peter’s shadow, healed every one of these sick folks. What was the secret of Peter’s great anointing?

Note that Peter had a number of disappointing moments with the master. The Lord, on a number of occasions, said to him, “Why are you of little faith?” Peter walked on water but failed along the line. He answered Jesus on His real identity, but within the next moments, Jesus rebuked him as Satan speaking through him. He finally denied that he knew the Lord. All these shortcomings did not put him down, but rather made him love the Lord more. He was strengthened as a result.

Peter’s case was an example of one who never gave up. He was an ardent follower of the master, and although He made lots of mistakes he did not give up because of his many mistakes. Mistakes never disqualify one from getting what God has for him or her, so long as you do not give up. Peter’s mistakes rather refined him and caused him to resolve never to fail the Lord. Lastly, he made those mistakes because he was using the flesh to do the things of the Spirit. When the Holy Spirit came upon him, he had known enough, not to fail again.

The lessons we learn from the apostle Peter are still the same to enable one to receive the anointing. Love the Lord deeply, go after Him in obedience, prayer, and fasting, and you would surely be satisfied with the anointing.


I go after the Lord with all my heart. I do not allow any shortcomings or setbacks to stop me from pursuing, till I get to my final goal. The Lord is always faithful, and will surely reward every diligent seeker.


Joh 21:17 KJV “He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.”

Acts 10:34 , 35 KJV” Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.”
