Activating The Anointing

Activating The Anointing

By Bishop Charles AgyinAsare

Psalm 92:10(NKJV)

“But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil”.

Everything in nature assumes a state of rest until a force from outside sets it in motion. The anointing on the life of the Christian will remain dormant or in a state of rest until it is activated.

The anointing of God is imparted at redemption but may become dormant if not activated regularly. So the anointing must always be fresh to be operational.

Many Christians today are walking in an anointing of the past. They are always talking about the good old days when they were powerful and very anointed. But that is not God’s plan for us. God’s desire is to anoint us with fresh oil.

Let us look at three ways to activate the anointing :

1. Thirst for God

We activate the anointing by constantly thirsting for God. It is not possible to walk in daily power without a daily thirst and hunger for God.

Psalm 42:1 (NKJV) says,

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God”.

2. Pray and fast

Regular fasting and prayers are needed to sustain the anointing on our lives.

Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit after waiting on God through prayer and fasting.

The Scripture tells us in Luke 4:14( NKJV ),

“Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region.”

3. Live a consecrated life

If you want the anointing to be fresh, you must depart from iniquity and embrace purity. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 9:8( NKJV),

“Let your garments always be white, And let your head lack no oil”.

Precious one, without fresh anointing we are bound to struggle in life and in ministry. But when the anointing becomes concentrated we will operate with ease.

Prayer : Heavenly Father, grant me the grace to constantly keep the oil on my head fresh in Jesus’ Name, Amen
