Message from Natasha:
Wow. Wow. Wow. When I read today’s message from Joel and Victoria Osteen, I just knew that I had to share it with all of you. We must remind ourselves each day and throughout our days, that we are anointed! Enjoy today’s message. Please share it with others. Please share your comments, prayers and testimonies, so that we all can feel God’s love pouring through you. Thank you.
You are Anointed
“You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
(Acts 10:38, NASB)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
When Jesus walked the earth, He was on a mission. Not only did He come to die on the cross and save us from our sins, He had a mission to set people free from every kind of brokenness and oppression. He was anointed, or empowered by God, to fulfill His mission.
Notice it doesn’t say that He went around doing good to some people or healing some people. No, it says that He went around doing good and healing all. That was His mission, and He is still fulfilling that mission in the earth today.
When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, the Bible says that you become an ambassador of His. That means you are His representative. As His representative, you have access to the same power and authority that He has. You are empowered to fulfill His mission in the earth. You are anointed to do good and heal those who are oppressed by the enemy.
Is there someone in your life who needs a touch from God today? You are His hands and feet. You are anointed to do good. You are anointed to pray for the sick. As you reach out to others and allow God to use you, you will see His power flow through you, and you will be empowered as you empower others. Remember, you are anointed!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for choosing me. Thank You for doing good in my life and setting me free! Show me how I can be an instrument of Your goodness and healing to those around me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
