Leading by Anointing (9) – Journey of Leadership Daily Devotional

Leading with Charcater, Competence and Courage

Sharing is caring!


You are Anointed to Face the Challenge!

We have been anointed to lead a fight to enforce the fulfillment of God’s plan for our lives, families, organizations, Church and nations. 

Without the power of the anointing, we will only become victims instead of victors. The enemies will rule where children of the King of kings ought to be rulers. That’s why we must not take God’s anointing for granted in our lives.

Anointing Make Rulers out of Ordinary People!

The Psalmist said, “The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies” (Psalm 110:2).

There is something God is saying to you here.  God says there is a Ruler in you. The anointing is the ability to rule in the midst of oppositions. It is the power to subdue mountains and roadblocks the enemies have mounted to stop you from accomplishing the purpose of God for your life.

When Jesus came into the world, He came as the anointed – The Rod of God’s strength out of Zion. He came, fought and conquered. He never bowed to challenges He met on the earth but confronted and overcame through the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

He refused to give up or get discouraged with all that Satan did against Him because He knew the purpose of His assignment on the earth was to destroy the works of the devil.

And same Jesus said, “Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. 
And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost” (John 20:21-22).

Dear Beloved, by the anointing of the Holy Ghost, you are now the Rod of God’s strength, sent by Jesus to establish His victory in your life, profession, ministry, family, community or wherever you have been planted.

No matter the challenge you are facing presently, believe that you are above it.

You are anointed to overcome, overthrow, transform and change situations that are contrary to God’s plan for your life and the people around you.

As the Rod of God’s strength out of Zion, you are not permitted to be defeated. You are the instrument with which God is going to demonstrate the might of His Power to save lives and destinies suffering under the oppression of Satan. 

Therefore, arise and face every challenge before you with absolute confidence in Christ. You are anointed for this! You’re the Rod of God’s strength sent by Jesus.  

Father, Cause Your anointed ones to arise in Your anointing to confront the challenges facing Nigeria.

“No matter the challenge you are facing presently, believe that you are above it!”

“And David said, Your servant will go and fight with this Philistine…” – 1 Samuel 17:32
