1John 2:20 and 27, “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all you know the truth. As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as the anointing is real, not counterfeit-just as it has taught you, remain in him.”
How many times in our life do we feel this is true? Do we questions the validity of God’s anointing on us for certain tasks? Sometimes I do, I wonder how He can use such a cracked and broken vessel as me. But then, just as quickly I have a choice. Do I choose to believe Him or my feelings and thoughts? Do I chose to believe the lie of the enemy that tells me if I am not measuring up in every area of my walk then surly I’m not anointed.
I think the key is to "Remain in Him!" He, the Lord, the Holy One, who gave the anointing, will lead me into all truth, as I remain in Him. Just as he has taught me all the things I needed in the past to do His will; so He will teach me all thing I need going forward on my journey.
Because of His faithfulness in the past and His promise for the future, I can depend on Him to teach me all things on each step of my journey.
Without question the journey can be uncertain at times, especially when we are following His lead. But that is part of the joy and excitement of allowing Him to teach me. When I don’t have the answer, I am in the exact place of surrender and obedience He wants me to be in. We can chose not to fight against the anointing even though the way may seem unclear.
Enjoy the Ride! Enjoy the intimacy of daily dependence on the Holy One to guide and teach you what He wants. Your journey doesn’t look like anyone else’s. Because He planned it that way, so you would be utterly dependent on Him for the wisdom and understanding to move forward in your anointing.
Rejoice, again I say Rejoice! Embrace your journey as time draws near for His return. Learn all you can from Holy One.
