Isaiah 10:27 says, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”
We serve a God who specializes in removing the burdens that weigh down our spirits and our souls. God is in the business of releasing us from the physical and spiritual bondages that keep us from reaching our full potential. God doesn’t want to see anyone in chains or enslaved to sin and suffering. It is by the moving of the Spirit that God can set people free. It is by the anointing oil of the Holy Ghost that Almighty God can set you free. Whether it’s drug addiction, prostitution, or some sort of medical malady God can break the yoke and liberate you completely.
While no one has a lock or monopoly on the moving of the Spirit let’s never forget that we all have access to the anointing of the Spirit. No matter your race, color, or creed we all can come boldly to the throne of grace to ask (and receive) the healing or deliverance we need. For those of us who feel a special and distinctive call to ministry there is a special blessing that comes with that responsibility and vocation. It’s important to keep that in mind and be conscious of that anointing both in your public duties and private devotions.
