How the Anointing for Greatness falls upon..........Believers - It will change you!


Every born again Christian is destined for exploits in life and the empowerment to do the exploit is called the 'Anointing'.  The anointing is the power behind the success and triumphant living that moves a 'Nobody' to somebody.  It ends the person's struggle in critical areas of life as divine favour and mercy of God goes ahead of the anointed.

If the anointing falls on a Baker, he will suddenly apprehend an uncommon vision of how to blend flour, condiments and spices that will make his bread stand out.  

He may have struggled with several combinations for years, but when the anointing comes upon him, it perfects his efforts and take away the struggle and launch him into a master baker status, with his bread being demanded by the high and mighty in society.

It is the anointing that breaks the yoke off peoples neck.  To the Christian who has not yet matured in the faith, the anointing comes and go...When he or she cry to God to deliver him from a strong enemy or problem.

But to a matured and God-fearing Christian, who may not necessarily be a Pastor, the anointing comes and stays, albeit in the areas of his strength.  I mean to say, in the areas where his faith is strong.  

You need anointing to make the right choices and do things excellently.  Anointing comes with excellent Spirit, wisdom and know-how about something.  It can be teaching, preaching, manufacturing and producing something of value, construction, medicine, food etc.  

Nature of Anointing
The bible says in Isaiah 10:27 that "It shall come to pass in that day, That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil". When the anointing comes upon a mechanic, it makes him better skilled to repairs cars of different types effortlessly, I have seen some mechanics like that. that are anointed for what they are doing.

When the anointing comes upon an Engineer, you will notice he will speak and talk about his work in clear terms and with deeper understanding.  He begins to dream big dreams about construction, drawing his big dreams and before long his hands will lay hold on one opportunity to display his expertise.  From that work, the world will identify him as a unique Engineer.

Take the case of KFC, known as Kentucky Fried Chicken founded by Colonel Harland Sanders,  an entrepreneur who began selling fried chicken from his roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky, during the Great Depression. Sanders 'saw' or identified the potential of fried chicken as meal of its own that can compete with hamburger and similar foods.

Anointing falls on you while 'on-the-job'
This entrepreneur started selling fried chicken from a roadside restaurant, before the anointing came upon him.  When the anointing came, it came with uncommon spices combination that made KFC chicken unique throughout the world till this day, it also came with Franchising idea and how to expand and distribute the chicken meal, which Colonel Sander executed before he sold the business. 

When the anointing came, his struggle at the roadside restaurant came to an end, his middle-class life changed to first-class and eventually, he entered the American history books.  After MacDonald, KFC is the world's second-largest restaurant chain.

I believe in practical Christianity, that is why I am sharing this secret to motivate every reader and Christians to ask for the anointing of God to excel in what they are doing, as anointing is not limited to preachers and Prophets.

It falls on what is in your hands
The anointing falls on what is in your hand, so start doing something.  It should be something you will continue with and persist for a long time. Start the business and continue with it, believe in what you are doing, suffer to learn the business, understand its technicalities, its shortfalls and areas of possible improvement that will bring joy and relief to people who patronize the service of a product. 

A "Nobody' becomes somebody by His grace through the anointing.  It starts with a vision of what to do, doing it and praying and asking God for the anointing to do it better and prosper in the work.  

Beloved, the anointing is the power to get wealth, it comes from God according to Deut 8:18 which says "But thou shall remember the Lord thy God: For it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth. The power comes from God through the Holy Ghost,  When the Holy Ghost falls upon you, the power for uncommon exploits has fallen on you.

The bible says in Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost comes upon you''. It is the presence of the Holy Ghost and His power that turns the tide for you.  You need the Holy Ghost to be called the son/daughter of God, you need the Holy Ghost to excel in business, career, marriage etc.  You need Him to excel in life and ministry.

How to Encounter Him

If you are not yet born again, you will need to do that and become His Sons and daughters.  You will decide to serve Him with all your heart, in truth and Spirit.  You will also learn to walk in holiness.

The reason is that the anointing falls on clean vessels.  He promised to pour out His Spirit in the last days upon all flesh that will enable people to see the vision, prophesy and dream dreams.  But His Holy Spirit will only fall upon clean and pure vessels.

If the Spirit falls on a filthy and corrupt person, the Spirit cannot stay there, He will eventually leave.  You have to embrace holy and righteous living. 

1. Then ask the Lord for the power to get wealth. Ask for wisdom and excellent Spirit.

2. Choose a career, profession, vocation or Trade, get some training or apprenticeship or acquire relevant skills about the business and start the business.

3. Continue in the business and gain deeper insight about the trade, opportunities and threats associated with the business.

4. Pray to God and ask for the anointing to excel in the business.
5. Pray again, asking for the power to get wealth.

6. When it comes, you will know - because it will open your understanding and the rest will be history.

Management Tip for Success
Here are some timeless management tips that propelled Warren Buffet's success, and trust me, if you can take them to heart, they will also propel your own success in 2019.

1.  Never lose money. 
Making money is great, but keeping money or retaining money is greater! What he is saying is that by ‘Never forget Rule no.1’ is that while making money is the key to business, keeping money is the key to owning a very successful business.

2. It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.  Always remember to think about what you’re going to say before you say something that you might regret later in life. Your reputation is everything. Don't forget that...

3. It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behaviour is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.
Spend time with people who have a positive outlook on both life and the business world and that positivity will transfer to you. Spend time with people who have a constantly negative outlook and you’re setting yourself up for some dark times ahead.

4. Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.
If you want to eliminate risk then you better know the ins and outs of your business. If you find yourself twiddling your thumbs then start reading up on your chosen sector. You never know what you might learn.

5. Admit mistakes and move on.
In the shareholder letter to Berkshire Hathaway investors back in 2010, Buffet let everyone know that he was responsible for a $44-million blunder:

6. Understand the power of humour.
Starting up your own business is no laughing matter – unless you’re setting up a comedy club, we suppose – but there is room for a few laughs along the way.

Find a way to relax your customer and investors, even partners.  Jokes well-thought-out will do well as well as some humour.  You cannot underestimate the disarming effect of good humour.
