But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
(1 John 2:27)


The anointing is the most powerful force in the earth! It is God’s power over human flesh to do what only God can do. If you have been born again, then Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing) lives inside of you. All you have to do is believe the anointing is in you, and draw it out with your faith.

When God gives you a task, it is going to be bigger than what you can do in your natural power. If the accomplishments in our lives are attained only by our own human abilities, then we are not living up to the potential that God has placed in us through the power of His anointing.

God can give you greater knowledge and wisdom than a person that is not able to discern spiritual matters. You are not limited to the sense-knowledge of the world. The Holy Spirit guides you into all truth. He will keep you on course, so that you will receive all that God has for you.


Lord, I thank you that your anointing lives big in me today. I speak by faith that I receive guidance from the Holy Spirit for every situation confronting me. I yield my natural understanding to the Holy Spirit and hear Him saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
