Part of our responsibility after we are born again is to learn to be led by the Spirit of God in our life and to learn and know He has anointed us to fulfill our call.

Rom 8:14
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

We are also to be aware of the anointing that is on our life. It should be very sobering to know that we are responsible to fulfill our call on this earth.

Anointing, as described in the Bible, can be defined as "God on flesh doing those things that flesh cannot do." It is God doing those things only He can do, and doing them through a flesh-and-blood, earthly vessel.

2 Corinthians 4:7
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

The basic meaning of the Bible word "anoint" is "to pour on, smear all over or rub into." In the Old Testament, someone who was anointed by God for special service to God had oil poured or smeared on him. For instance, Saul, and later David, was anointed with oil by the prophet Samuel when God revealed He had chosen him to be king of Israel.

The anointing is God's presence by the Holy Spirit. The anointing is God's Spirit and power for service in this earth. Jesus has provided the same presence of the Holy Spirit for us in our earthly ministries that He had in His earthly ministry.

1 John 2:27
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

If you're "in Christ," there's an anointing for everything you're called to do, no matter how small or how great the task. As I stated above, God has placed a call on each individual for a specific purpose here on the earth.

If we "trust on", "delight in" and "commit" our ways unto God, He will see to it that we have everything we need to complete the task that was set before us. It is up to us to accept the calling and fulfill what we are called to do. We will not come short in any good thing when we trust on, delight in and commit our lives unto Him.

Until next time, KEEP THE FAITH !!!!!!!
