God’s Anointing is For Me

A Truth to Live – God’s direction for my life involves blessing others.

Scripture – The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor, He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”  

Isaiah 61:1

Prayer – God, You have chosen the right direction for my life.  When the clutter and busyness of my life crowd Your purpose for me, help me to remember that my real fulfillment comes when I give back to others.  In fact, when I concentrate on my own needs, I am left with my own feeble wisdom to try to solve the problem. But when I bring the Good News to those in need, Your anointing flows through my life – bringing healing to me and to so many others around me.

Help me to remember that just as You gave Your life for me, I should spend my life serving others. Your blessing flows in my life when I help meet the needs of the poor, encourage the brokenhearted, help those bound in emotional pain, and care for those in prison.  Place my life today, Lord, with others who are in need. Give me the chance to pour out so that I can be a vessel filled with Your eternal never ending goodness. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
