The Anointing Of The Lord Makes Us Strong Inside, Pray For It



A recurring theme in the Holy Bible is to be strong and of very courages, to fear not, to have faith in overcoming difficult tasks, because the Lord will be with us, as He was with Moses and Joshua, when the children of Israel stood ready to enter the hard-fought-for, hard-earned Promised Land.


Be strong and of good courage. Do not fret, be dismayed or fearful. Be bold!


A quintessential example, for Christians, is when Peter boldly preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ, on the day of Pentecost, in the midst of some of the people who had just railroaded Jesus to be crucified.


Peter focused on preathing the resurrection of Christ to the Lord's enemies and others who were listening. The resurrection of Jesus, as foreteold by King David. Peter also preached repentance, baptism and the Holy Ghos on Pentecost.


He told the Israelite leaders, and co-conspirators, that they were all responsible for delivering Jesus of Nazareth up, and denying the Lord in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go.


The Jewish leaders let a murder go, and killed the Prince of Life, the divine deity with the human nature who born to be King of the Jews. Then they threatened Peter and John, commanding them not to preach the Gospel.


Peter was thrown in jail but came out the next day, again spitting the fire of the Holy Spirit to the Jewish elders, rulers and scribes.


And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander and the high priests kindred were there at Jerusalem trying to shake Peter loose from the Spirit.


But the Christians got together and prayed for more boldness to preach the Gospel even stronger.


God was gracious and obliged their prayers for boldness.


Be strong!


Moses and Aaron, at the direction of Almighty God, went and told Pharoah to "Let my people go."


They had to resist their inner fears.


Moses could not speak, in his own words. He was not confident in speaking. He told JEHOVAH, "I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue."


This was exponentially evident, especially in front of Pharoah. Especially telling the Egyptian king to "Let my people go."


Five syllables that would be so slow to come out of Moses's mouth, that the Egyptian ruler would mock him to death.


So the Lord sent Aaron with Moses to Pharaoah.


Moses had to be strong! Aaron had to be strong!


They knew the Lord was with them, though unseen by the Egyptians.


Moses may have been worried about what his older brother by three years, Aaron, was going to say to Pharaoh, and about Pharaoh's reaction.


It is in the realm of possibility for Moses. After all, he was worried enough to flee from Egypt after murdering an Egyptian who he saw beating a fellow Hebrew Israelite.


You know, Pharaoah could send a guard with a sword to chop all the people in Israel's heads off for disrespecting him.


The anointing of the Holy Spirit makes us strong. Pray for it.


This is not that strongest man in the world strength. Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 4:6)


For the LORD God is a sun and a shield; the LORD gives grace and glory; He withholds no good thing from those who walk with integrity. (Psalm 84:11)


When the voice rise up in you and say you can't do it. You already did it, didn't you? Before you knew it.


Didn't the Lord guide you through it? While you were trying to figure it out, he already worked it out.


Be strong!


If yo confess the Lord, call Him up for strength.


Be strong!
