ANOINTING FOR THE OIL OF JOY
There are many reasons why many are sorrowful. Losses, lack and sometimes loneliness can make someone to be sorrowful. When God’s laws are broken, people become sorrowful. Sin brings sorrow to mankind. In fact, breaking God’s law is the principal source of sorrow. Sorrow was introduced to man in book of Genesis when man broke the laws of God, he became sorrowful. Life took a different turn and man became unhappy, because God created him joyfully. When you break the law of God, you go into sorrow. If you want to deal with sorrow, the first thing to deal with is sin, sinful habit and sin practices. When you repent, the eternal joy becomes your portion. His will for your life is to be in joy all the days of your life. This shall be your portion in Jesus’ name. Where there is sorrow, it will be turned to sweetness in Jesus’ name. Exodus 15:23-26, “And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they [were] bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. 24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? 25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, [which] when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, 26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.”
Martial bitterness shall become marital sweetness; financial bitterness shall become financial sweetness; health bitterness shall become health sweetness. The oil of joy will be upon your life. Bad report brings sorrow. But God will turn it around to good report in the name of Jesus. The tree Moses used to heal waters of Marah represents the cross on which Jesus was crucified. Because of Calvary, sweetness shall enter into your life in the name of Jesus. Everything He took at Calvary shall not be found in your life again in Jesus’ name. Receive all the benefits accrued to you from Calvary. Psalms 45:7, “Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.” Isaiah 61:1-3, “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”
Psalms 23:5, “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” Psalms 90:14, “O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” 1 Samuel 1:15, “And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I [am] a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.” Isaiah 61:3, “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”
1 Samuel 2:1, “And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.”
- Jesus, thank You for what You did on the Cross at Calvary, wash my sins away this evening and make me whole in Jesus’ name.
- Father, I receive oil of joy; let it come upon me and my household in Jesus’ name.
- Father, destroy yoke of bitterness in my life, career, business and all my life’s endeavour in Jesus’ name.
- Father, whatever good thing that has been withheld from me shall be released to me in Jesus’ name.
