ANOINTED VESSEL FOR DIVINE UTTERANCE- 17/05/2014
Yesterday's message was titled "HAZARDING LIVES FOR MISSIONS”. Today's message is titled "ANOINTED VESSEL FOR DIVINE UTTERANCE" as provided by Pastor E. A. Adeboye in Open Heavens Devotional (Adeboye, 2014). In today’s message, we have been asked to memorise Isaiah 61:1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." Today's reading was taken from Jeremiah 1:6-10 and the Bible reading in one year is Genesis 35:1 to Genesis 37:11 and Psalm 106:13-31 (Adeboye, 2014).
Quoted below is the message for your input
"The anointing of God has some similarities with electricity. It flows from God, through man, to men. One major purpose of the anointing as enunciated in Isaiah 10:27 is to destroy the yokes the devil has placed on men:
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”
One of the methods through which the anointing flows through a man is by divine utterance. God is the One that anoints or sets aside a man for divine utterances. I pray that you will be anointed for divine utterance in Jesus’ Name. A man is anointed by God to bring solution to the problems of his generation. Anointed vessels are set apart by God for leadership purposes. They are also set apart as watchmen to warn God’s people, like Ezekiel. To be an anointed vessel for divine utterance, you must be sensitive to the voice of God (1 Samuel 3:4) and obedient to both God and your human superiors like Joshua was to Moses. You must also be truthful, faithful and have unfeigned commitment to the work of God. An anointed vessel for divine utterance should be available, teachable, meek, patient, holy, bold, prayerful and should love God. You can be an anointed vessel for divine utterance today if you make up your mind to hear and to speak the voice of God, obey His voice and encourage others to do the same.
A person that desires to be an anointed vessel for divine utterance must understand the Personality behind the voice he seeks to relay, especially with respect to His dealings with and His desires for His people. He must understand that our God is good and there is no iota of evil in Him. He is the God of Solution. He is a strong Rock and Foundation (Psalm 31:2-3). As a Rock, God covers believers with strength (Psalm 18:32). He grants excellent physical, spiritual and material health. As a Rock, He grants instant and ultimate salvation to His own. As a Rock, God overtakes, defeats and destroys all the enemies of His children, bringing them to submission (Romans 8:30-32). God is our fortress (Psalm 18:2). As our fortress, God turns mourning to dancing, turns childlessness and barrenness to fruitfulness and turns poverty to wealth. God is our deliverer. He knows all things, sees all things and performs all good things for His people."
The action point is to Seek to be an anointed vessel of God for divine utterance today. Nothing is as profitable.
God bless you all for your contribution. Have a blessed weekend
