Bible Reading: Judges 16:20

Memory Verse: But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified. 1 Corinthians 10:27 (NKJV)

As important as the anointing of God is upon a man, many have misunderstood it, misconcrued it or manipulated it for their own self motive. Daddy Mike Bamiloye once wrote a piece titled, “DECEIVED BY THE ANOINTING”. He said: Why are you being deceived by the presence of the anointing while the character and integrity are missing? Why do you think the anointing would cover up all those character flaws? Why do you think your sonorous voice and gifted skills of praise and worship is all the Lord needs above your personal intimacy?

You are a gifted actor who have blessed multitudes of souls and healed many lives, but you are an unrepentant lustful child of God who wins souls for the Lord and whose soul is sliding to hell. Why are you being deceived by the anointing of God you carry. You preach with all conviction! You teach with all persuasion! You sing with all inspirations! You act with all unctions! And yet the integrity is lacking! Your lustfulness has injured many. Your covetousness have wounded a lot. Your pride has baffled multitudes. Your arrogance has astonished countless.

Yet, once you mount the stage and hold the microphone, the anointing descends like a shower! And the congregation are soaked in the power of His Presence! Ah!ah! I am seriously scared of this type of anointing! I don’t want it! Anointing that deceives the carrier of it! I don’t want it! Oh God! Don’t anoint my message if my ways are not right in your presence. Don’t show up if I have missed it! Why should I be deceived to think that all is well when all are wrong? Why should I believe you are happy with me when you have long left me alone!

This anointing of Samson! I don’t want this anointing! Anointing that would still be working until Delilah shaves off the dreadlocks of power? No warning signal? Or the signal wasn’t loud enough? Or it was Samson that never paid attention? No! I don’t want it! Did you noticed that, Samson was still powerful and anointed even after? After Samson had had a one night stand with the harlot of Gaza, he still had the power to uproot the bars and posts and iron gates of the city of Gaza! He carried them all on his shoulder up to a journey of more than ten kilometres and carried them up to the mountain to dump them there.

Anointing that works after rising from the harlot’s bed! Why must someone trek a thousand miles before knowing he is on the wrong path and turning back to start all over? O Lord, beat me now, if I am wrong! Chastise me now, if I miss it. Deal with me! Correct me! Prune me! BUT DON’T LEAVE ME! STOP THE ANOINTING, WHEN I MISS IT! Don’t let it be like a pressing iron that is still hot after the power is removed from the socket! So, my Brother! So, my Sister! That you carry incredible anointing to fulfill your ministry of teaching, acting and singing, does not give you the license not to live RIGHT! DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THE ANOINTING. You could carry the anointing and still miss it in the end IF YOU DO NOT LIVE RIGHT! May the Lord God of Heaven grant us sense with His anointing!

Quote: The anointing is most helpful only when discipled, else it could be self destructive.

Prophetic Decree: May the pride of grace never end your life in disgrace, in Jesus name.

Prayer Focus 

1. I repent of anyway I have commercialized the anointing, in Jesus name.

2. Today, I receive spiritual intelligence added to my anointing, in Jesus name.

3. O Lord, please don’t use me to later dump me. Please chastise me even as you use me when I go wrong.

4. I shall not be lost going to hell while my life bring blessings to others, in Jesus name.

5. Pride of anointing, die in my life, in Jesus name.
