TEXT: Psalm 119:105, Job 29:6, Joshua 1: 8, Psalm 133:1-2, Job 39:27
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105. “When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil” Job 29:6
Let Thy Head Lack No Ointment
The Word of God is the oil for our spirit, a lamp unto God and the world. No lamp burns without oil. Anointing is essentially expressed in oil. The oil is knowledge, wisdom and understanding that rests in your head, mind, heart and belly. The Word of God is transformed into oil for our spirit only through understanding; the word is first received, believed, confessed and absorbed into our whole being; our spirit, soul and body. A believer must stir up the wells of oil deposited in your spirit, so the rivers of oil can flow. Only through obedience to God’s Word, a believer can stir up wells of oil in the spirit. The Word of God kindles in lamp of our mind for new ideas of succcess. Do not go past books of life’s oil, instead get the books and read them. The books of life’s oil include the Word of God and anoited books inspired the Spirit of God. Books can only benefit you if they are read, meditated upon and mastered to produce a fruitful pattern of life’s work.
“This Book of Law shall not depart out of your mouth but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein, for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and have good sucess” Joshua 1: 8.
God has made you a running-over cup of oil, even in the presence of your enemies. You must be focused on the anointing, and not the enemies. Your anointing is much more important than the enemies.
Minding Is Mining
Minding is having your mind focused on a particular thing. Whatever you focus your mind on, increases and expands. A believer must mind the right things. The mindful is a possessor of a minefield, so you are the product of what you mind and mine.
Will Seat of Power In Man
What are you selling in the market of life? If you do not sell a product, you cannot make money, which is a defence. Your product is the solution inspired by God in your mind and spirit through knowledge and understanding. The world earnestly awaits your product, your manifestation, your light. Let your lamp produce light.
Follow And Believe In God’s Anointed
To follow and believe in God’s anointed is to follow, believe and obey his words which are inspired by the Spirit of God. The impartation of God’s anointed becomes effective only when believers are doers of the command, which is words of prophesy. Obedience to God’s anointed is the key to miracles. Only when believers wait on the Lord by obeying prophetic directives, can they mount up like an eagle.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. It is like the ointment upon the head, that ran down the beard, even Aaron’s bead: that went down the skirts of his garments” Psalm 133:1-2
“Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?” Job 39:27
