Your Anointing

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 we receive through Jesus teaches us what we need to know. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned and we need guidance. As we pray for the Holy Spirit, we are guided into truth. 

The Apostle John is teaching us here that the anointing of truth comes from above. God the Father has placed an anointing on us as His Sons and Daughters. What a privilege, but with that comes a great responsibility. 

We are representing our heavenly family. You may be the only example of Jesus that someone sees. Someone may be waiting on you today to catch a glimpse of the heart of Jesus. 

You do not need to walk through life blindly and alone. Pray over your anointing. Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead. And pray that you will be a positive influence for our Heavenly Father.

We have been promised guidance. 

To Ponder:

Do I believe in the anointing and its power for my life?


Heavenly Father, 

Thank You for bringing me into Your family and anointing me with truth. Guide me with Your Holy Spirit that I will be a positive example of Your love to the world. That You will be glorified in all areas of my life.

In Jesus Precious and Holy Name, Amen.
