ANOINTED TO BE SINGLE OUT FOR FAVOUR
God does not do favouritism and he is not partial. He is good to all. So where they have many people, believers and unbelievers vying for a position, sales, job, who takes the job or position since all her children of God. Some will say destiny, God’s will and things like that.
Here is what I found in the scripture in Daniel.
Dan 11:32 KJV And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Our ability to know will determine our levels of exploits in life. the grace of God is available to all. There is a need to reposition ourselves for favour.
There was a council meeting in Jerusalem to debate whether the gentiles should be circumcised before they can become Christians. In that meeting, Peter made this astounding statement about himself.
Act 15:7 KJV And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
The Hebrew word for “made choice” is “eklegomai” and it means: to pick out, choose, to pick or choose out for one’s self; choosing one out of many, i.e. Jesus chose his disciples; choosing one for an office and of God choosing whom he judged fit to receive his favours and separated from the rest of mankind to be peculiarly his own and to be attended continually by his gracious oversight.
That is, of all the apostles, he designated me to engage in this work.God chose me to be the first apostle of the Gentiles. In other words, out of all the apostles qualified, filled with Holy gHost, had the same commission, Peter was singled out to be the apostle of the Gentiles.
1Chr 28:4 KJV Howbeit the LORD God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath chosen Judah to be the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he liked me to make me king over all Israel:
As at the time he was chosen, he had not killed Goliath or done any notable feats recorded for him. But out of ordinary, out of all the sons of his fathers, the lOrd liked and chose him.
I may not know your position in the family, maybe you are the eldest, youngest, mid child but the same anointing shall distinguish you out, it shall set you out and set you above.
What the Bible means is that you will excel above them. Shout amen.
The same was said concerning Solomon.
1Chr 28:5 KJV And of all my sons, (for the LORD hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon.
The excellent spirit on Daniel was the spirit of grace that distinguished him out of all presidents and princes. That same excellent spirit is available.
When God wants to bless people He creates a need. Then He waits for someone who is sensitive to “key” into that need. In the same way, when God wants to promote and lift up people, He creates vacancy.
How does He creates vacancy?
Psa 75:6-7 KJV 6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
Vashti was the queen but because of the future of the Hebrews and the Jews, she ended up offending her husband the king and was fired. It was all an act of providence. She was occupying the seat that belongs to another person.
There was a competition to choose the most beautiful girl for the king. Esther was among the multitude drafted out. They were prepared for one full year. The ladies were to come into the king house. It was done turn by turn.
Est 2:15-17 KJV 15 Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king’s chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her. 16 So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. 17 And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.
By the account, Esther was not the most beautiful girl among the ladies picked out. But the king preferred her above all the women. She obtained favour in the sight of all that beheld her. The secret is in that verse 15. The chamberlain. Whatever the Chamberlain recommended was what she used.
While others went in with their own abilities, their own beautiful things, understanding, knowledge and deportment, Esther deferred to Chamberlain.
When we defer to Him, He knows the mind of God, then when we step out, we will obtain favour, unprecedented favour in the sight of men.
She made no effort to adorn her person with jewelry or dress to please her own fancy, but left the matter entirely to Hegai, who would be likely to know best what would please the king.
All of them had access to the Chamberlain but only Esther took advantage of him.
Today the Holy Spirit is the Chamberlain,
1Cor 2:11 KJV For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
The world we live in is full of competition. Life is competitive. Very few positions are available for many and uncountable people.Everybody has to struggle to get in. Some of the available positions are taken over by politicians and people at the top.It is now by a man who knows man. You have to know somebody that knows somebody.
In the marketplace, everybody is selling the same thing at almost the same price. How do I make enough sales and make profit?
There is nothing you are doing now that you don’t have people that can do the same thing or even do it cheaper or better than you. How do you survive?
Even churches are not left out. There is subtle competition going on. Many Christians are not aware of this and they approach life like those other ladies in the story. They go to the competition market, school, interview, business premises with their own abilities, talents, gifts and knowledge. And we wonder why we experience poor results.
But when you defer to the Chamberlain who is the Holy Spirit
He will speak through you.
Mat 10:19-20 KJV 19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Luk 21:15 KJV For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
He will make you look good
There is an anointing that set one above mates
Heb 1:9 KJV Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
The word “fellows” there in Greek is “metochos” and it means: sharing in, partaking, a partner (in a work, office, dignity); participant, that is, (as noun) a sharer ; by implication an associate: – fellow, partaker.
he was anointed above his “fellows”; by whom are meant, not the angels, nor the kings and princes of the earth; but the saints, who are so called, because they are of the same nature, and are of the same family, and are partakers of the same spirit, and grace; and having received the unction from him, are also kings, priests, and prophets, and will be companions with him to all eternity.
The reason of his being anointed, or exalted, and made Lord and Christ, is, because he loves righteousness; see Php 2:7 or rather, because he is anointed with the Holy Spirit without measure, therefore he loves righteousness; for the words may be rendered, “thou lovest righteousness–because God, thy God, hath anointed thee”.
- anointing that distinguish one out of the crowd, anointing that separates out of the multitude be released on me
- anointing above competitors and colleagues be released on me
- anointing for excellence after the order of Daniel be released on me
- anointing above fellows after the order of Jesus be released on me
