“Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore, God even thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows” Hebrews 1:9
The Oil of gladness is a special anointing that the Lord God gives to those who love righteousness and do it. The oil is able to heal any hurting spirit. If your heart has been broken, this oil can mend it and bind it up. This oil contains healing properties that quickly soothes and relieves every brokenness in the life of men. The oil of gladness will also lift you above your fellows. This means that it will increase your status and present level, so that you will become greater than your age mates and colleagues. When this oil of gladness comes on you, anyone who looks at you will see the glory and splendor of God most high upon your life. This is because your life will so shine and radiate the presence of God that when people see you, it’s like they’re seeing Jesus, for the glory and favour you will carry will be so profound and rub off on them as well.
An important truth here is that the oil breaks every garment of sorrow in your life. Do you see why it’s called “Oil of gladness?” It gladdens your heart and fills your life with joy that has no bounds. Every yoke of heaviness and mourning in your life shall be destroyed by this anointing. Beloved, it is God’s will for you to be in joy. He wants you to know joy only as a mark of having the righteousness of God in you.
True Christianity (not religion) is being like Christ Jesus. It is conforming to His image so that you speak like Him, walk like He did, think like Him, and so on. When you are Christ-like, people will see you and say, “wow you are awesome, you are just like Jesus”. This lifestyle is the true righteousness of God and it gives joy because of the oil God gives you. Hence, a true Christian should always be joyful.
Marital delay broken
During a Tuesday service on 26th December last year, daddy Larry picked me and my sister up prophetically and gave us a word that the delays in my family were over. I received it. On 3rd of January, my sister did her traditional marriage, and it was talk of the town. Praise God.
[Spend some time and worship God. Thank Him for all He has done.]
1. Dear Lord, do a work in me and let Christ be formed in me. May the sin nature in me die permanently and Your righteous ways be ever evident in me. Amen.
2. Any delay in my life and family, be destroyed now in Jesus name
3. Every curse of going round in circles, I break it now in Jesus name.
4. Any evil altar where my name or that of any member of my family, fire consume that altar in Jesus name.
5. I speak overwhelming joy into every area of my life and family in Jesus name.
