Today’s Key Scripture
“You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God, I can scale a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.”
— Psalm 18:28-33, NIV
Because of what Jesus Christ did at Calvary, we can be anointed by God’s touch in everything we do.
- W. Tozer, the late, noted Bible teacher, described this experience, saying, “Nothing can take the place of the touch of God in the soul and the sense of Someone there.”
The anointing of God causes us to soar above the place we’ve been. God’s love for us is without measure, and He promises that as we seek Him, we will find Him when we search for Him with all of our heart.
God’s grace is sufficient, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness. In His presence, we will find all that we will ever need.
What strength does our Lord Jesus give us? It is the capacity for endurance and the power to resist any force or attack. God will strengthen our life with His anointing and take us from one high point to the next.
Did you know that God has even commanded strength toward you? God’s anointing will cause you to go from weakness to great strength, from lack to great abundance, from passivity to great power.
God has commanded your strength!
A Prayer for Today
Father God, You are the Rock of my salvation. I run to You today, believing that You will strengthen me for the road ahead. Fuel me for the tasks You have given me to do. Help me to endure. Protect me from any force that would attack and wound me. Take me from one mountaintop to the next, and stay with me through the valleys, too. Lord, renew my strength. Fill me with Your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in my path. I will keep my eyes on You, Lord. Thank You for allowing me to walk with You in communion and intimacy. I love You with all of my heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
