“Anointed with a Purpose”

 

(Luke 4:18-19) “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

(Hebrews 11:13) “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

 

Without a precise purpose or goal, you can work your fingers to the bone and never really amount to much. Some people just like to live day by day and moment by moment thinking that is the best way to achieve joy. Jesus knew why He was anointed and it brought Him joy to fulfill the Father’s purpose.

If you can’t imagine yourself in God’s great plan for your life, then you will never be able to take a step in that direction. Whatever you have planned for your life, God’s plan is bigger and better, so you better make sure you are a part of it. Don’t use your own strength, but fall back into the arms of the Almighty God, and let Him empower you. Don’t work hard….work smart!

The great heroes of the Bible knew the promise of the Messiah to come and held on to it. They knew their purpose was to make the way for Jesus who was to come and set us free both from slavery to Satan and sin. They were not disappointed when they faced trouble, nor did they feel that God was delaying the promise. They knew He was faithful and this gave them a purpose to continue and be fruitful in their lives.

Only God can give you the vision, desire, strength, and joy for your life’s purpose….He knows your beginning from your end. If you truly believe that what God has anointed you for is possible, then you need to walk and talk as if it was already done… because in the Spiritual…God has already finished it.
