What is the relationship between our call and our anointing?
I believe that our anointing is released through our obedience to our call.
Our call is the Holy Spirit releasing in us those things the Lord put in us before He created us in the womb. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “I knew you before I formed in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” This was what the Lord spoke over Jeremiah so even though we are not all appointed with the 5-fold ministry anointing of a prophet we are ALL made in the likeness of Christ and given our unique gifts, talents and abilities that God wanted us to have for the call set forth before us. We are His dear children. He has blessed us IN THE HEAVENLY REALMS with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING because we are UNITED with CHRIST [paraphrased from Ephesians 1:3]. WOW! Is your identity of yourself in line with His identity of you?
Our anointing was breathed in us by the breath of God when He created us [For the Spirit of God made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4] but I believe it is released when we walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit calling out the CALL of GOD on our lives.
When we are obedient to what the Holy Spirit is calling us to do that anointing is released so we can accomplish those plans. We all know the famous verse found in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for YOU, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” We can trust in the one who created us that when the Holy Spirit calls us our Heavenly Father will be right there releasing the anointing for us to succeed in those plans. This requires FAITH in the one who created you and called you!
