|…as for you, the anointing [the special gift, the preparation] which you received from Him remains [permanently] in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you. But just as His anointing teaches you [giving you insight through the presence of the Holy Spirit] about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as His anointing has taught you, you must remain in Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him]. 1 John 2:27.

God’s Word in 1.John 4:13 says, “By this we know that we abide in Him and Him in us because He has given us His Spirit.” That clearly reveals to you that in Christ Jesus, you have received the Holy Spirit. Today’s opening text also tells you that the Holy Spirit and His anointing live permanently in you. Through the same text, the teaching ministry of the Spirit is brought to your awareness. The Holy Spirit is in you to teach you the truth concerning all things. When you fellowship with the Word, you are guided into the truth, and He grants you insight into the deep things of God. Everything you need to know in life is available in the school of the Spirit. Teaching you the truth is His specialty, therefore, you can easily differentiate what is true from lies. He adequately furnishes you with the accurate knowledge of the Father’s Will, as you give yourself to the Word. The Holy Spirit supplies answers to the questions in your heart, whether it has to do with your identity in Christ, your finances, your health or your marriage. As you yield yourself to the Word, you will realize you do not need to ask for more anointing because you already have the Holy Spirit and all of His anointing in you. That’s why it is very important that you grow in this consciousness. It is your responsibility to continually nurture your relationship with the Holy Spirit and live by the truth that He teaches you.PRAYER: Thank You Father for Your Holy Spirit that is permanently resident in me. I live daily by the truth He teaches me in Jesus’ name.
