The breakthrough anointing will bring you out of isolation. David had to wait for 20 years before he saw God’s promise fulfilled. Each of us has breakthrough anointing within us, even if we are not aware of it. We need to understand the ebb and flow of God just like a fisherman understands the tides of the sea. Our God is a God of excellence. The difference between excellence and mediocrity is forward motion. If you stop believing, become inactive or fail to follow through, then you will only walk in partial victory.
How can you have full victory?
- Continue to ride the tide by faith.
God will teach you and guide you like a child. Your victory will be proportionate to your desire and action. Whatever you do, be it in business, education or family, do it for the Lord with all your heart. It is all about your heart.
- Engage and face your enemy or problem.
Shoot the arrow as a declaration of war.
He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm achieved salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him. He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak. According to what they have done, so will he repay wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes; he will repay the islands their due. From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the Lord. (Isaiah 59:16-21)
Isaiah prophesied about the Lord Jesus. When injustice swept in like a flood, he wrote that the Lord would lift up a standard against the enemy. We need to believe in that promise. Nothing can prevail against the standard of the Lord.
- Pray a prayer of dependence that reflects the attitude of your heart towards God.
The action described in 1 Kings 13:17 was done in total dependence on God and not the ways of the flesh. Jehoash, King of Israel, did what the prophet asked him to do, thus becoming totally dependent on the instruction of God. This was followed by a prayerful declaration against the enemy. We need to rise to such a level of faith if we are to see victory in our own lives.
- Depend on the Spirit of God.
Elisha’s bones still carried his anointing; that is how powerful the anointing of God is.
It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. (Psalm 18:32-34)
What a powerful declaration. Amen.
