KEY SCRIPTURE: Heb 11:26 KJV(Moses)” Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.”
Please this series of teachings is to help, answer the desire of most young and upcoming servants of God, about how to enter the flow of God’s anointing. Please note that; the anointing does not come on an individual just because of God’s sovereignty, rather, scripture has revealed specific acts and conditions, if met by an individual, he or she will be qualified to be used of God. Consider the following verse.2 Timothy 2:20 KJV” But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man, therefore, purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
From the above verses of scripture, we learn that there are vessels of Gold. No one makes himself gold. Gold talks about people who have special grace. There are also vessels of silver and various levels of qualities, all the making by divine providence, yet as to whether a vessel is useful, or impactful, depends on that individual himself, or herself. God is no respecter of persons, He would show Himself to the one who loves Him, pursues Him, and keeps His words John 14:21. Once again, the anointing is not just an act of divine selection and placement.
Let’s consider the case of Moses. Moses was born to deliver his people from Egyptian bondage, but let’s consider the following revelations about Him. Heb 11:24 KJV” By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;”
He refused to be called the Son of Pharoah’s daughter. He had all the comfort, and privileges that life could offer him, yet for the heavenly call which was, unknown to him, but a stirring within his inner bowels , decided to forsake that pleasure and go, to suffer with His people. What would have happened to Moses, if he had refused to obey the inner stirrings to leave Pharoah’s house, but had chosen to stay there? There is no anointing for those who would not forsake their worldly ambitions, or pleasure to pursue after God. The anointing is always a response from God to a life of selflessness and pursuit of God.
I deny myself of all unrighteous acts and self-centered ways, to pursue God’s ways, and to make myself available to Him. I diligently seek His face in whatever means possible, of which fasting and prayer are one. The anointing for service surely comes upon my life.
Heb 11:26 KJV” Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.”
Heb 11:27 KJV” By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.”
