Seeds of Destiny 12 July 2020 Sunday Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: A Lifting Up By The Oil
SCRIPTURE: And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. 2 Kings 4:2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Oil is the answer to the tears of life, destiny and ministry.
The Scripture makes it clear that the Oil (anointing) is a major lifter of life and destiny. Saul, the first king of Israel was lifted by the prophetic Oil of Prophet Samuel (1 Samuel 10:1-10). David, the second king of Israel was also lifted up by the prophetic Oil of the same Prophet Samuel (1 Samuel 16:1-13).
Now, we shall look at how the anointing delivered a prophet’s widow. The prophet who was the husband of this woman died in debt and the creditors came to take her two sons to be bondmen. This was the terribly pathetic situation this woman found herself before she cried to Elisha. But when Elisha demanded to know what she had in the house, she told him that all that she had was a pot of Oil (2 Kings 4:2). And it turned out that the pot of Oil that she had was the rescue for her destiny. This means, you have no need to fear for your life and destiny if the Oil is not missing. There is no need to even fear for the destiny of your children and your loved ones if the Oil is not lacking. The anointing is critical to destiny.
Now, from the story of this widow, we shall look at two areas in which the Oil (anointing) will produce result:
1. The Oil is the answer to the tears of life, destiny and ministry (2 Kings 4:1).
What handled the cry of the woman was the Oil. The Oil is the answer to the tears of life, destiny and ministry. Tears are not permitted to continue if the Oil is not lacking. Sorrowing or mourning is not permitted to continue in your life if the Oil is not lacking.
2. The Oil is the answer to inherited liabilities and challenges (2 Kings 4:1).
This woman inherited only debt from her late husband, but it was handled by the Oil. There are things that follow people from their father’s house; others inherited things because of who gave birth to them. But the Oil is the answer to inherited liabilities and challenges of life.
Beloved, if there is any unpleasant thing following you because of the person who gave birth to you, the Oil is the cure. Therefore, go for the Oil.
Remember this: The Oil is the answer to the tears of life, destiny and ministry.
1. Make demands on God for the release of the Oil on your life.
2. Pray in the Spirit and study the Word of God in order to contact the anointing of God.
3. Maintain connection to your prophet for the impartation of the oil.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the release of the Oil on my life. Draw me close to You in deep intimacy, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Everything that come to put your life under pressure in this high-pressured world, if you refuse to bow to their pressure, then the anointing comes out in a greater dimension. Culled from “MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY” by Dr Paul Enenche.
AMAZING FACT: According to alternate history (https://althistory.fandom.com), the worth of Gold and Silver alone used in building Solomon’s Temple is quantified to be 216 Billion Dollars which is twice the worth of the 2018 world richest man, Jeff Bezos, whose worth was then estimated to be 112 Billion Dollars. If the worth of the Gold and Silver alone used in building Solomon’s Temple is almost two times the worth of the richest person on earth, what would be the worth of Solomon when all his wealth is put together? Unimaginable! Truly, people who are passionate for God and build His temple are the wisest and the richest on earth.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: By the reason of the anointing, whatever has caused tears in your life before now is over in Jesus’ Name.
