The Anointing That Breaks the Yoke

Are you in bondage? Are you a slave to a bad habit, a sin, a person, a job, or a situation? If so, I declare to you this day that Jesus has set you free! 

Perhaps the freedom Jesus earned for you resonates on an intellectual level. If so, that’s good, but it’s not enough. The freedom Jesus died to give you must resonate on an emotional and psychological level in order for you to experience it. 

You see, we can believe in God with our heads but not with our hearts, and it will do us no good. Even the devils believe in God (James 2:19). In order for us to receive from God, we must know that we know that we know that He will accomplish what He has promised us. There is no room for maybe. 

God often deals in anointings. An anointing is an impartation of power from the Most High to one of His servants in order for God to accomplish His purpose through that servant. For example, if we are called by God to write, then we have His writing anointing. In other words, we have His power to write whatever He has called us to write. 

To do anything without God’s anointing is to court disaster. We can do nothing in and of ourselves. Without the anointing, what we do will fall flat on its face. But, oh! When God’s anointing is present on our writing, it will break yokes of bondage as our readers read our words (Isaiah 10:27). 

If your writing is suffering, perhaps you’re missing the anointing. If so, ask God to grant it to you. But remember, you must ask for His sake, not yours.

  1. Some days I feel His annointing. Some days, I don’t. That doesn’t take away the fact that He’s called me to write. And He doesn’t leave me to do it alone. My job is to eat right, exercise and get enough sleep … none of which I do well. But these things are vital to being able to think and create and sit and write. Dear Lord, please help me to do these things so your annointing will flow.

    • Dear Pam,

      God’s anointing works through our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:10). I am praying that you will notice God’s anointing flowing through you even when you feel “weak”.

  2. Thanks fir the post. I struggle sometime with having enough faith to not worry about the annointing. Hopefully it is enough to simply give thanks for the opportunity to write and ask that God’s will be done through my writing.

  3. Thank you, this post has given me inspiration to take my writing more seriously. I never saw it as an anointing, all I know is I enjoy writing and it comes naturally. Even more natural than verbal communication. I now understand why I always had a tendency to write prayers instead of saying them, or my obession with keeping a journal.
