You Are Anointed
September 30th, 2013
It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever questioned your own ability to do something? Even though others around you believed it could be done, you found a way to talk yourself out of it. Are you hard on yourself? No matter how much God uses you, you are never satisfied. Have you ever compared your life to the life of a friend? Because they have something you always wanted, now you considered them more blessed than yourself. Have you ever questioned the effects of your ministry? Since you are not in the spotlight often, you feel ineffective. Have you ever seen an old friend from high school and heard their testimony? After conversing with them, now you are depressed or upset with your progress.
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Through all we experience in this life. Through all of the ups and downs. Through all of the rain and pain, heartaches and disappointments, tears and fears, I have been sent to tell you something of great importance. My friend, You Are Anointed! In spite of what the enemy has spoken to you, God has chosen you. The Bible declares in John 15:16 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it you. He has chosen you for Him. You Are Anointed! You do have a purpose to fulfill in this life. Understand, do not look at the life of someone else and feel as if you are not anointed by God. What God has chosen for you to do, is an assignment perfectly designed for you. The Bible declares in Matthew 22:14 - For many are called, but few are chosen.
My brother, my sister, today you must grow past the point of comparing yourself to someone else. God did not call you to compare yourself to anyone but Jesus Christ. You Are Anointed! Even though you feel as if things have just begun in your life, God has anointed you for where He is taking you. The Bible declares in Philippians 1:6 - Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Beloved, God would not send you out unless He anointed you for the task. What are you worried about today? What fear factor are you battling? Dear friend, You Are Anointed! The very hand of God has saturated you for something greater. Right now it may seem dark in your life. Things may appear impossible. The Bible declares in Ecclesiastes 7:8 - Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit. Prayer for Today: Father, today I thank you for the anointing on my life. I ask that you give me the boldness to operate in my anointing. In Jesus’ name … Amen!
Scripture Reading for Today: Isaiah 10:27
Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
27 He will take away the troubles Assyria brought you—troubles that are like heavy weights carried with a yoke on your neck. But that yoke will be taken off your neck. The burden will be lifted from your shoulders.
May God Bless you at Your point of need!

Insanely popular book. Today, I decided to take The 5 Love Languages Quiz to see what my primary language is.
Oh. Yes. I'm definitely incorporating this into personal and professional interactions.
You can take it, too! Or not. LOL. I liked it and it proved to be insightful.
The day after Mu's funeral...24 days ago...a grasshopper hitched a ride in one of her plants and rode back to La Porte with us.
I'm drinking coffee on the balcony and looking at him as I type this.
He's grown on me now.
He hides when I try to get close and take a picture of him.
When he dies or hops away, I'm gonna need a day of mourning to recover! LOL!
Oh...and all the plants yet live! :-)
