Recently, I have been watching a spin-off of the original 80’s Transformers cartoon, called Transformer Robots in Disguise with my #littlelion. And at the beginning of each mission Bumblebee, the Team Leader commands the team to ‘rev up & roll out’! The command is an encouragement to the team that if they are going to be successful on their mission, they need to be ready for action!
And the same is true for each and every one of us. If we are to be successful in the different areas of our lives, we need to ensure that we ‘rev up and roll out’ and are ready for action.
“…Jesus arrived from Nazareth, anointed by God with the Holy Spirit, ready for action…” Acts 10:38 (MSG)
As Christians, the thing that makes us ready for action, ready to achieve all the God has set before us is the anointing of the Holy Spirit! Acts 10:38 teaches us that the reason Jesus was ready for His mission and purpose was because He was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit! Friends, if we are going to be mission ready, we need to ensure that we are anointed with the Holy Spirit!
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is the impartation of God’s supernatural empowerment…..
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is the impartation of God’s supernatural empowerment to help us effectively live our lives and succeed in our mission. It is the supernatural ability and grace that helps us win at life. And throughout the Bible, we see God’s anointing people with the Holy Spirit to help them achieve their dreams and destiny. Whether, it is King David anointed to be a great king and warrior or Elisha anointed to be a prophet to the nations or Aaron anointed into the priesthood – the anointed was what made them successful and fruitful.
Everybody needs the anointing, no matter who you are and what you do!
The good news is that you don’t have to be a king, a priest or prophet to be anointed of God. In Exodus 31, we see that God anoints labourers to build the Tabernacle and in Acts 6, we see volunteers anointed of God to serve tables. Everybody needs the anointing, no matter who you are and what you do! We all need the anointing!
And the key to getting the anointing of the Holy Spirit – the impartation of God’s supernatural empowerment – in your life is simply to ask God for it and receive it by faith. Let me encourage you today to ask God for His anointing because it will empower you so that you can ‘rev up and roll out’ and be ready for action!
The best is yet to come!
