The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the broken-hearted, to proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives and freedom to prisoners, to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance and retribution of our God, to comfort all who mourn, to grant to those who mourn in Zion the following: to give them a turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning], the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit. So, they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified. Isaiah 61:1-7 [AMP]
You may be among the several Christians that have been anointed heavily by God, but they are not doing anything with the anointing. They fast, pray, sow seeds and take any other action they believe would facilitate their receiving the anointing; and when the anointing comes, they do nothing with it. The essence of the anointing is beyond making you to pray in robust tongues and fell cool. Our passage today sheds some light on the real purpose of the anointing God has bestowed upon your life. You can therefore personalize this declaration and say; “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the broken-hearted, to proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives and freedom to prisoners” (Isaiah 61:1).
The primary reason you have been anointed is to empower you to preach the gospel; heal the broken-hearted and proclaim liberty to the captives. Other purposes of the anointing were also spelt out in the passage. Put in other words, you have been anointed to solve problems. If you find yourself anywhere and things are going wrong there, don’t look for whom to blame because you carry the solution to that problem. You deploy the solution you carry through speaking, preaching, praying and taking steps to convert the wisdom of God via solutions to the needs. If you fail to do these consistently, then you are wasting the most precious gift and help God has given to man. If you carry the solution to a problem and fail to apply it; you become as culpable for the problem, if not more so, than whatever had caused the problem.
When you understand and fully deploy the anointing of God upon your life, you will fulfil God’s purpose which provide the twin fold blessings in your personal life and the world at large. The proper deployment of the anointing of God make us kings, priests and we rule here on Earth – *but you shall be called the priests of the LORD; people will speak of you as the ministers of our God. you will eat the wealth of nations, and you will boast of their riches. Isaiah 61:6 (AMP)
I carry the solutions to the burdens of my generation. Wherever I go, I declare liberty.
Father thank you for giving me vision and purpose of the anointing on my life. I receive grace to proclaim liberty to the captives, open the doors for the prisoners, heal the sick and provide solution to the problems you have destined me to solve in my sphere of influence and the earth.
