Anointed for Mission

Anointed for service

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because I am marked out by him to give good news to the poor; he has sent me to make well those who are broken-hearted; to say that the prisoners will be let go, and the blind will see, and to make the wounded free from their chains,  To give knowledge that the year of the Lord's good pleasure is come."
(Luke 4:18-19 BBE)

"The Spirit of the ʟORD shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the ʟORD."
(Isaiah 11:2 NKJV)

Hearers and Doers

"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says."   (James 1:22 NIV)

"Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like."
(James 1:22 - 24 MSG)

Thus speaks the Lord

If the Lord is with you then it is accomplished.

“Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them.   For see, today I have made you strong like a fortified city that cannot be captured, like an iron pillar or a bronze wall.

You will stand against the whole land— the kings, officials, priests, and people of Judah.  They will fight you, but they will fail. For I am with you, and I will take care of you. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
(Jeremiah 1:17-19 NLT)

Be Vigilant through Prayer

Thank you Father for the weapons of spiritual warfare You provided us.

"Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil."
(Ephesians 6:11 AMP)

Prosper O Lord the work of our hands for us.

Fill us with your love, O Lord, and we will sing for joy

"Fill us at daybreak with your kindness, that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.
And may the gracious care of the LORD our God be ours;
prosper the work of our hands for us! Prosper the work of our hands!" (Psalm 90: 14, 17 RM)

"Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Return, O LORD! How long?
Have pity on your servants!"  (Psalm 90: 12-13 RM)

Our confidence in God grows in direct proportion to our growth in His word

Our confidence in God grows as we grow in His word.

"For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children,  encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
(1Th 2:11-12 NIV)

"Whoever keeps the word of Christ,
the love of God is truly perfected in him."  (1John 2: 5  RM)

The word of God will Never Fail

God will Never go back on His word.

"For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart."
(Hebrews 4:12 AMP)

"It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it."  (Isaiah 55 : 11 NLT)
