FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Samuel 16:14-23

MEMORY VERSE: “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.” – Luke 4:14


Some things are so valuable to our lives and purposes that we should guard them jealously and never lose them. One of such things is our spiritual endowment called the anointing. When Jesus read Luke 4:8-21 to the people in the Synagogue, He highlighted His mission on earth: to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, the recovering of sight to the blind and to set at liberty those that were bruised. He added that He was to do all these works by using the anointing the Father had placed upon Him. Therefore, we can safely conclude that the anointing was very important for the success of Jesus’ mission and the fulfillment of His destiny. Dear believer, the anointing God has given you too is to fulfil your divine assignment. Those who were careless and undervalued their anointing lost it to satan. Will you lose something so valuable to your mission on earth and indispensable for your eternity in heaven?

When an anointed person gets de-anointed, it is like removing the engine of a vehicle. It will not be able to fulfil its purpose again. It is also like switching off electric power from an electronic gadget, it will not be able to perform its function anymore. You will not fail in your divine assignment, in the name of Jesus. When Saul of Kish, the first king of Israel lost the anointing, an evil spirit began to torment him. He became a pawn in the chess board of the devil and his demons. Disgrace replaced grace in his life. When the same Saul lost the anointing, he found himself in total blackout. Heaven stopped communicating with him by any means. He kept moving from one error to another because God had abandoned him. A man so graciously anointed and promoted soon went to consult a woman with familiar spirit. Besides, because he had lost the anointing, Saul died in the hands of his enemies. He was defeated in the battlefield because heaven had abandoned him.

Samson was another Bible character that wasted the grace that God lavished on him. He lost his anointing to carelessness and immaturity in spiritual things. When the anointing had left him, the enemy arrested him and made him a laughing stock before their gods. They plucked his two eyes and rendered him completely disarmed. Thank God he prayed and God showed him mercy by restoring his strength. Yet he died with his enemies. It was not the kind of death a special vessel like him should have died if he kept this anointing.

When Goliath was boasting against the Israelites, all the trained men of war were afraid. None of them could confront and conquer the champion of the Philistine. Why? The Israeli army at that time comprised two classes of people, the de-anointed and the un-anointed. King Saul was the de-anointed person. He could not solve the problem facing the nation. The other soldiers were un-anointed, they could not help either. However, when David the anointed of the Lord arrived, he solved the problem by the anointing.

Beloved, note that Saul and Samson were not men of prayer and praise like David. They did not have the intimacy with God that was necessary to keep their anointing from the marauding enemy. Whatever spiritual or physical gift the Lord blesses you with, make sure you develop an intimacy with Him and make your relationship wth Him grow deeper on a daily basis. By so doing, the enemy and his cohorts will not be able to harm you or steal your anointing and any other thing that is precious to your life and eternity.

When you come in contact with the anointing of God, it not only affects your moment, it affects your tomorrow.




1 I cover my divine purpose with the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.

2 The enemy will not steal or destroy my anointing, in the name of Jesus.

3 Agenda of the enemy and his cohorts for my life and destiny, scatter, in the name of Jesus.


4 Any power assigned to de-anoint me, somersault and die, in the name of Jesus.

5 Father, teach me to grow deeper in fellowship with You, in the name of Jesus.

6 By the anointing, I will fulfil my calling and finish well, in the name of Jesus.

7 The grace of God upon my life will never turn to disgrace, in the name of Jesus.
