The Anointing of the Holy Spirit I Daily Walk Devotion

Every believer needs to aware of the spiritual scams out there. Ministers and businessmen will prey upon the innocent and naive. They will take a smidgen of scripture and twist it to make it serve their purposes so they can extract your money from your wallet. You need to understand that only God chooses who to work through, and it is those He puts the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

‭‭ACTS‬ ‭19:11-12‬

“God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them, and the evil spirits went out.”

A Special Anointing

Paul had a special anointing. Part of it came from being called as an apostle, and part of it came out of necessity. His ministry to the Gentiles was expanding, and he couldn’t be everywhere at once. People would take handkerchiefs that he had touched, and when the ailing person would touch them, the sicknesses and diseases would leave. God used it as a way for people to be healed and as a testimony to the power of God. Word would spread, and it would make people interested in the Gospel.

Spiritual Posers

As in everything in the Bible, you will find people who try to copy it. A friend of mine was in the hospital, and when I walked in, he was gripping a washcloth. I asked his son what the deal was, and he told me a buddy of his had prayed over it and sent it to heal his dad. It didn’t work. I’m not being critical, but there are a lot of spiritual posers selling miraculous wares that gullible people can’t get enough of. It’s important to understand that it’s the anointing working through a person and not the mechanism.

The Anointing of the Holy Spirit

God works through people in all kinds of ways. He chose specific ways to work through Paul because it was most effective and ministering to people and spreading the Gospel. How God chooses to work through you works with the same parameters. It may not be as miraculous as it was with Paul, but it doesn’t mean it is less effective. Walk in the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
