TODAY'S SCRIPTURE “…You anoint my head with oil" (Psalm 23:5, NKJ)
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
In the Bible, oil is symbolic of the anointing of God. Do you know what oil does? It makes things flow. Whenever there is friction or something gets stuck, putting oil on it makes it become more fluid. That’s what God wants to do for you. He wants to anoint your head with oil. When he does that, notice what David says in Psalm 23, “Because God anoints me, because I walk in His favor; surely, goodness and mercy will follow me everywhere I go." His anointing makes things easier. People will go out of their way to be good to you for no reason. You’re going to have creativity, wisdom, and good ideas. God’s anointing on your life will cause the right doors to open. It will bring the right people across your path. It will make things go smoother. And the good news is, all you have to do is ask Him for it. Remember, He longs to be good to you. You can trust that His anointing will make things easier, and He will lead you into the abundant life He has in store for you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY Heavenly Father, thank You for Your favor in my life today. Thank you for causing me to be at the right place at the right time. Anoint my head with Your oil so that I move forward in the path You have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
As I look back now, and consider how we can determine how we deal with the suffering in our lives I was encouraged by the word shared today by Joel - we are anointed and he has caused us to flow in to specific places in life. I am pleased to know that all relationships will be used by Him for the Kingdom. I continue to walk in a faithful trust that the Lord has a good and perfect plan ... and I need to continue to move forward in this journey. What an awesome journey it is. Praise God!
GRACE AND PEACE!
