But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him – 1 John 2:27

This is so powerful! The anointing is in you. Have you acknowledged this reality? Do you have the consciousness of one who’s anointed by the Holy Spirit? You should have the present hour consciousness that the Anointed One, and His anointing, lives in you.

Philemon 1:6 says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” The anointing is one of the good things in you in Christ Jesus. That anointing is the inherent power of God by which we effect positive changes. Being born again, you’re anointed with God’s power, glory and might because the Holy Spirit lives in you. You’re thus empowered of Him to accomplish things beyond human ability.

Paul said in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” “Christ” here refers to the Anointed One and the Anointing. Therefore, Christ being in you means you’re supernatural; you can accomplish anything by His power that’s at work in you. No wonder the Bible says nothing shall be impossible unto you (Mark 9:23). Walking in the light of this truth will cause you to be more effective in your Christian walk.

Recall what we read in Philemon 1:6; if you were to start listing the good things that are in you in Christ Jesus, you could pick the anointing as one of them and say, “The communication of my faith is effectual because I acknowledge the anointing of God’s Spirit which is in me.” That anointing on your life makes you a success in all that you do; it makes you invincible in life.

Dear Father, I recognize your anointing on my life, and I declare that by reason of that anointing, I can do all things; I can change hopeless situations and manifest your glory in any challenging situation. O, what a life of glory, dominion, and grace you’ve given me in Christ! I’m living that life to the fullest, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
