Have you been anointed with fresh Oil? There are definite things to expect. Remember that expectation puts a demand on the anointing. Expectation is the connection between the source and the receiver. You are the receiver. God is the source. Your expectation is the connection. Wherever you have a perfect connection, there will be a perfect flow. Never you cease to expect the best that God can give you especially since he has given you his word. If you press in, you will receive.
It takes pressing to receive just like the woman with the issue of blood said in Matt 9:21 “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.” That was what fired her expectation that something was going to happen. She held on to this in spite of all the obstacles; she kept on expecting until she made a connection. That contact with the river of life produced her miracle – the issue of blood which doctors and experts could not fix, ceased.
Keep on expecting. Don’t disconnect from the flow. Those who disconnect are the greatest losers. God’s solution for every issue is the anointing. God’s prescription is the oil. Jesus Christ is the anointed One; the messiah. His name is an ointment poured forth (SOS 1:3). He is the personification of the very power, wisdom and light of God. That is why we need to humble ourselves when we come to him and acknowledge that we need him. We need to press until we purposefully connect and refuse to disconnect; refuse to be pushed aside. Keep on expecting. Don’t just make a casual contact. The woman with the issue of blood made a purposeful, definite contact. That is what releases the maximum flow.
Things to Expect from the Oil (cont’d.)
8. God’s faithfulness.
Psa. 89:24, “But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted”. Are you ready to experience the faithfulness of God as well as his mercy? The exaltation that comes from God, not the one from man, is the best. Anyone who walks with God over time comes to one major conclusion – God is faithful. If you walk faithfully with God over time you come to that same conclusion. The Living Bible puts this scripture this way, “I will protect and bless him constantly and surround him with my love; he will be great because of me”. Whatever God has, he has in supernatural abundance; you cannot liquidate God. That is why we must approach him with expectation. The bigger your expectation, the more it will meet up with the size of God. Let your expectation be God-sized and let your desire be heightened. If you want to walk with God, you must have desire for the best he can give. He has so much to give. Anything he has is self-generating and self-perpetuating. That is why if everyone living on the planet earth come to God at the same time; he is capable of meeting the needs of everyone. There is no inflation in heaven, no scarcity, no lack. It is the oil of greatness. When God makes you great, nobody can reverse it, nothing can beat you down or stop you. If God is lifting you, not even the sky will be your limit. Remove your eyes from human beings, focus on God. When the chips are down, you will discover that the only One that cannot fail is the Rock of Ages. Build on the Rock.
- Lord, I receive your word in Psa. 89:24 that you will protect and bless me constantly and surround me with your love. I will be great because of you. This is your word for me. Henceforth, I depend on you. I look up to you from whom all blessings flow. Take me from where I am to where you want me to be and let your mighty hand be with me all the days of my life. Thank you faithful God, in Jesus’ name.
