As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you… 1 John 2: 27
The anointing remains, now matter how long has it been since you literally felt that power in your life. You may have forgotten your skill, you may have forgotten your giftings, you may have forgotten that you were made for something greater than what you are right now. It doesn’t matter. The God who placed that anointing in your life has not forgotten.
He remembers His promises, and He has visited you again today to remind you that it is time to wake up from your self-induced slumber. The Lord is here now. He has come to fulfill the promise He has spoken to you many years ago. “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” [Gen. 28: 15]
It is time to rise up. Your period of dormancy is over. Your time of mourning is at its end. It is time to open your eyes again. Look around you. God has made everything new. He has recreated your world. Forget the former things. Forget the shame of your youth. Your time is here. Again.
Behold, I have made you a new, sharp threshing sledge with double edges;
You will thresh the mountains and pulverize them,
And will make the hills like chaff. [Isaiah 41: 15]
This time around, the magnitude of the impact of your life will increase tenfold. You will speak blessings to thousands, influence countless people to make decisions for Christ, reach a segment of the society you were not able to reach before.
This time, you will begin to understand why things never worked out in the past.
