When you arrive there, anoint Hazael to be king of Aram. 16 Then anoint Jehu son of Nimshi to be king of Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from the town of Abel-meholah to replace you as my prophet.” (1 Kings 19:15-16, NLT)

This is a time when God is anointing and appointed those for specific tasks. Whatever God appoints you to do, He will anoint you to do. He always gives you what you need to carry out the task. As I was preparing to write this I heard the Lord say, “I am passing out some new appointments and I am placing new anointing’s and increasing other anointing’s so that you can carry out the new appointment I have for you. You have prepared, you have been faithful, and you have done everything I’ve asked from you and now it’s time for promotion. It’s time for an anointing to be placed upon you to carry out the appointment I have for you.”

I get many of you who comment on these posts on Facebook and many that send me emails and this seems to be a time of limbo for many. I truly believe that this time of limbo is coming to an end as God anoints and appoints. God is constantly raising up voices for Him. The voices in the church world that we all know today won’t be around forever and God is placing mantles of anointing on you and I as He raises us up to step in and fill the appointed positions.

I hope you were encouraged today and all throughout the week. Divine direction is what God spoke to me at the beginning of this week. It’s not always going to be easy, but God will always be with you and there’s nothing that brings more joy to life than walking fully in the calling He has for you. Be blessed and encouraged, your time is now!
