A Center Staging Anointing of God (Evening)
Deuteronomy 28:13 “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.”,
Côte d’Ivoire won the 2015 African Nation cup beating Ghana in the final. Played goalless for 120 minutes, Côte d’Ivoire finally won 9-8 at a penalty shootout. Two first takers of Côte d’Ivoire failed to score while the opponent scored the first two penalties. Up 2-0, Ghana felt ahead. However, things back square one at 2-2. Six next takers of each team scored to make the score 8-8. The last two takers are goalkeepers from both teams. Ghana’s goalkeeper failed to score. The goalkeeper from Côte d’Ivoire, Boubacar Barry, who was injured saving the opponent’s penalty, scored the last penalty that gave Côte d’Ivoire the win.
Boubacar Barry was initially a reserve goalkeeper who replaced the injured goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo. After spending time on the bench the whole tournament, Barry finally got his victory stage.
How about our current circumstances? Do we feel like we are nothing? Feels incapable, unimportant dan meaningless that we belong on the bench? Today’s rhema says that He wants to make as heads and not tails. God wants to anoint with an extra portion, the anointing that will bring us from the back to the center stage. Ensure that we are ready to receive, for God seeks for those worthy of the extra portion anointing to fulfil His plan.
GOD’S ANOINTING that will bring us from THE BACK to THE CENTER STAGE.
1. How do you see your life today? Where are you now?
2. What makes you feel like you are behind?
3. How do you prepare yourself to receive the extra portion of anointing?
“Father, we thank You for You are so caring. You want to take us upwards and not down. Be a head rather than a tail. Help us to adequately prepare ourselves for the extra portion anointing that changes our life. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
