You anoint my head with oil Psalm 23:5, NKJV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In the Bible, oil is symbolic of the anointing of God. Do you know what oil does? It makes things flow. Whenever there is friction or something gets stuck, putting oil on it makes it become more fluid. Thats what God wants to do for you. He wants to anoint your head with oil. When He does that, notice what David says in Psalm 23, Because God anoints me, because I walk in His favor; surely, goodness and mercy will follow me everywhere I go.
Friend, Gods anointing makes things easier. People will go out of their way to be good to you for no reason. Youre going to have creativity, wisdom and good ideas. Gods anointing on your life will cause the right doors to open. It will bring the right people across your path. It will make things go smoother. And the good news is, all you have to do is ask Him for it. Remember, He longs to be good to you. You can trust that His anointing will make things easier, and He will lead you into the abundant life He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your favor in my life today. Thank You for causing me to be at the right place at the right time. Anoint my head with Your oil so that I can move forward in the path You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
