My passion is God’s Presence. I hunger and thirst for more of God. His Holy presence is my joy and delight. David expressed it beautifully. “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.” (Psalm 27:4) David had his priorities right.
Fresh Oil is my response to this call. It combines my love for His presence with a desire to see people grow, change and come to maturity.
Why “Fresh Oil”? The Word of God declares……..
“I shall be anointed with fresh oil” Psalm 92:10.
Many times the scripture uses the symbol of oil to represent the anointing of God and from Psalm 92 we see that we need to be anointed with fresh oil. Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It represents God’s presence and power in our life – the anointing. To anoint is to rub in, smear, or pour on. It becomes like the fresh oil of God’s presence and anoints us to live out of this presence.
I love that! As believers, we don’t have to live in yesterday’s anointing. Today …this day… as we steadfastly look to Him, He will abundantly pour His fresh anointing upon us! Our God is all about “fresh and new” – no yesterday’s “leftovers”. Each day we’ll discover a new day filled with new grace, new mercy, new joy, new hope and strength and a fresh new anointing as we seek Him and His presence!
Wow! As we daily seek Him, He will abundantly pour upon us newness and rich growth. I don’t know about you, but I need His fresh oil anointing, every moment of everyday! We need to run into His presence and receive His unfailing love and protection, comfort and fresh oil anointing!
The purpose of this blog is to stir within your heart the deep passionate desire to seek to know Him more and daily experience His Presence
