READ: 1 Samuel 16:1-13
I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him
It is the anointing that breaks the yoke. So where exactly is the anointing? The anointing is found IN the anointed man! The anointing is found WITH the anointed man! The anointing is found UPON the anointed man! The anointing is inseparable from the man whom God has anointed.
Since it is the anointing that really breaks the yoke, it is important to locate the anointing. Years ago, people discovered that oranges could cure diseases. Science went further to discover the element within the oranges that actually brought about the healing: Vitamin C! Today, many people simply focus on taking Vitamin C tablets. They have a revelation of the secret that brings the healing.
In the same way, there is an element in anointed men that performs wonders and that element is the anointing. Unfortunately, there is no chemical process to separate the anointing from the anointed man like Vitamin C has been separated from oranges. You are going to have to deal with the anointed man if you want to gain access to the anointing.
It is this lack of separation between the anointed and the anointing that is the undoing of proud Christians. “I want God to use me but I do not want to relate with His anointed to gain the anointing.”
God has chosen a black man, a white man, an educated man or even an idiot to place His anointing upon. You are going to have to go to that person because he contains and carries the anointing
