But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
1 John 2:20
As a Christian, if you have received the Holy Spirit, there is an anointing on you! 1 John 2:27 reads, “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” It says the anointing teaches you.
That means whatever problem you are faced with as a child of God—be it financial, in your job, your health, your family, whatever it may be—the anointing can teach you what to do.
If you would listen to the Lord in your heart, you will hear His voice! You will hear Him tell you what to do, because it is His will and desire to guide and lead you from Glory to Glory on the path of victory!
Isaiah 30:21 says, “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’ Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.”
No man or woman of God should walk in darkness or confusion. There is an anointing on you. We should no longer make the wrong choices and investments in life because you have a teacher on the inside of you who has anointed your mind to think excellently and make quality decisions.
1 John 2:27 says it teaches us all things not some! By the Holy Spirit you can know how to run your family, your business, your finances, your academia and everything you need to know about life. “Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God.” (2 Corinthians 1:21)
The anointing of the Holy Spirit in your life makes you supernatural! Amen?
Therefore being justified by faith,
We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The verse above says, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
That means there is no war or enmity between you and God. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has brought you into an everlasting peace with God. That’s the Gospel, that is the Good News!
The peace being referred to here is more than just a ceasefire, quietness or end of hostilities; it means oneness. We have been brought into a beautiful harmonious relationship with God through Jesus, amen!
The scripture reads in Ephesians 2:13, “But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”
By virtue of the work of Jesus on the cross you have been justified; that means declared righteous and have peace with God. The word “justified” is from the Greek word “dikaioo” which means to be acquitted.
God is not mad at you and does not count your sins against you. God not only forgives you, He remembers your sins, wrong doings, no more because Jesus paid the price on your behalf.
Isaiah 53:5 says the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him (Christ).
We have right standing with God thanks be to Jesus. Jesus gives us access into God’s presence, there is no other way, (John14:6). In the Old Testament only the high priest went in once a year to intercede for the people, but now we have direct access into his presence; we are in union and unity with Him, because we are at peace with Him, we’re in fellowship with Him, for there is no fellowship without peace. Amen?
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of hope; it’s a message that gives people a reason to believe in their future, it’s a message to give you a future. (Jer.29:11)
Some people might think they have no future, but when the gospel of Jesus is preached, hope comes alive, that’s the power of the gospel of Jesus.

“…and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the miraculous signs he had performed on the sick.”
The ministry of Jesus was gathering momentum; people were beginning to come to him for all kinds of different reasons. Some came out of love and devotion as we see from the story of the woman with the alabaster jar, (Luke 7:47) – she loved much.

Let the saints rejoice in this honour and sing for joy in their beds, May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double edged sword in their hands, to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron, to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all his saints. Psalm 149:5-9
As Christians, we are not called to fight the devil. Satan, the devil, is our adversary, but he is already defeated! He has been judged and we are the ones authorised to execute his judgement!

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:30-31.
The word translated “renew” above means “to bring back to life.” The picture is that of a tree that’s been hewed and chopped down and expected to die, but suddenly there has been a change and it’s brought back to life. It’s a kind of transformation where death is replaced with life.
Isaiah likens this to what happens when we “serve” the Lord, as we work in His Kingdom our strength is renewed! Weakness is replaced with His divine strength. It’s an exchange where you give Him your weakness and take His strength in its place, what a deal!

Therefore being justified by faith, We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1.
The verse above says, “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This means there is no war, no fight between you and God!
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ has brought you into an everlasting peace with God. The peace referred to here is more than just a ceasefire or quietness; it means oneness. We have been brought into a perfect union, a perfect unity with God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

“The unfolding (entrance) of your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.”
Notice the words of the psalmist in the verse above; it lets us know that it is the entrance of God’s word that gives light. That means the Word has to get into your spirit! The Word in you, mingled with your spirit and mixed with faith, is what God requires. It will change your life. When the Word of God gets into you, it brings you light.

But we all, with unveiled face, Beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord,
Are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, Just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
When you read the Word of God, you are looking into the mirror of God. The verse above tells us that what you see in the mirror of God as you “look” (study the Word), is the glory of God. It means that as you behold the glory of God you are changed into the glory that you see in the Word.

Today is a new day! You can have a new beginning when you resolve to let go of your past, embrace God in your present and that will bring change to your future.
The beginning is the most important part. We need to begin to see more of our potential in Christ than we do of our flaws.
You need to decide that you are not going to stay as you are or where you are. God asked Israel how long would they stay at a mountain (Deut.1:6) You might not see the whole picture but you have to take the first step.
