Remain Committed to Your Assignment

The Bible records in Acts 10:38 that Jesus was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and consequently with power. This anointing was for a purpose. Further in Acts 10:38, it is recorded that Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him. It is clear that Jesus understood that the anointing upon Him was not just for Him but it was for Him to complete His assignment; He remained focus on His assignment.

When you become born again, after accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your spirit was recreated and the Holy Spirit began to dwell in your spirit - Jn 14:16-17 & 1 Jn 4:4. The Holy Spirit embodies the power of God. God knew that for you to accomplish all that He has called you to do, you will need the Holy Spirit. Furthermore according to 1 Jn 2:20, you have an anointing from God by virtue of the Holy Spirit.

This gift of the Holy Spirit and the subsequent anointing is not just for your personal life. They have been given to you so that you can accomplish your assignment. However in order to maximize the power and anointing of God, you must remain focused and dedicated to your assignment. Jesus did not detour from His assignment. he stayed the course in spite of temptations and potential distractions. It was clear to all those who were around Him that He was on a mission to fulfill His destiny - Luk 2:49. Make a commitment to stay focused on your assignment and with the help of the Holy Spirit, you will accomplish all that you we called to do.
