34 But David said to Saul, “There were times when I was taking care of my father’s sheep that wild animals came to take some sheep from the flock. Once there was a lion and another time, a bear. 35 I chased that wild animal, attacked it, and took the sheep from its mouth. The wild animal jumped on me, but I caught it by the fur under its mouth. And I hit it and killed it. 36 I killed both a lion and a bear like that! And I will kill that foreigner, Goliath, just like them. Goliath will die because he made fun of the army of the living God. 37 The Lord saved me from the lion and the bear. He will also save me from this Philistine.”
Saul said to David, “Go and may the Lord be with you.”
MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 18TH JANUARY 2023 MESSAGE:
One of the wonders of the anointing is that it can make a man do supernatural things. In today’s Fire Scripture we saw a lion which came into the sheepfold to steal a lamb. David went after it, caught it, and punched it to death. That is a wonder because at this particular time, David was about seventeen years old, less than twenty years and he also killed a bear. He was a young man but the anointing made him to do supernatural things that were beyond his age. He, David, must have been filled with the anointing.
Another wonderful thing about the anointing is that it gives you the supernatural strength to outrun and outwit your enemies – 1 Kings 18:45-46 – After Elijah had wasted the wicked powers and prophets of Baal holding Israel to ransom, he needed to pray for rain to come after three and half years of drought and famine. Eventually, he had to leave Mount Carmel for Jezreel. The Bible says in verse 46: “And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah: and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.” He outran Ahab who was on a chariot because of the anointing upon him.
Dearly beloved, there is no end to what the anointing can do. When the anointing comes upon you, it will enable you to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. John 15:16: “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my Name, He may give it you.”
Dear reader, you need the anointing to fulfil your purpose. You need the anointing to break your yokes and to destroy your enemies that have purposed to hinder your destiny. Come unto Jesus today and He will touch you.
