SCRIPTURE: He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly…He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. – Isaiah 33:15-16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Anointing flows where the garment is pure.
Every man that works in righteousness walks about with a mobile barbed wire made with fire raw materials. You can call it ‘fire wire’ constructed by righteousness or right living (Zechariah 2:5). God does not toil with the defence of His people (Psalms 91:7). He can kill anyone to keep the one He loves alive. So, the righteous does not live at the mercy of circumstances, climatic change, terroristic attack etc.
Now, how does uprightness bring defence?
1. Purity provokes the flow of the Anointing. The Anointing flows where the garment is pure.
A person walks about with a pure garment also moves about with an anointed head and a person that moves about with a defiled garment also moves about with an empty head without oil. The anointing is the confirmation of a person’s defence (Psalms 105:15). An anointed head makes you an untouchable entity. When you move about anointed, you don’t need to beg the devil to leave you alone because there is a perpetual injunction from the Kingdom of God in the kingdom of darkness restraining them from trespassing.
As you receive the grace to maintain the pureness of garment, the Anointing will flow on your head, and that Anointing will confirm your defence, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The anointing flows where the garment is pure.
1. Make every effort to maintain a right stand with God at all time.
2. Maintain the consciousness of the finished work of Christ on Calvary.
PRAYER: LORD, I receive the grace to stay upright. Thank You for being my shield and defence O LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
