Devotional For March 7, 2024

But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.
‭‭I John‬ ‭2‬:‭20‬

The apostle John reassures believers that they have been anointed by the Holy One, referring to the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This special anointing enables them to discern spiritual truths and walk in divine guidance.

As followers of Christ, we are not left on our own. Through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, we have been anointed and empowered to live victoriously. This anointing equips us with spiritual insight and discernment, enabling us to know and understand the things of God.

The knowledge that believers possess through the anointing of the Holy Spirit is not mere intellectual understanding but a deep, experiential knowledge of God and His ways. It is a knowledge that transforms hearts, guides decisions, and shapes attitudes. This divine wisdom enables believers to discern truth from falsehood, righteousness from sin, and light from darkness.

How do we embrace the reality of our anointing by the Holy One? We rely on the guidance and empowerment of the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives, trusting that He will lead us into all truth. We cultivate a sensitivity to His leading and a willingness to follow wherever He may lead us.

Pray

Lord, thank You for the precious gift of the Holy Spirit. Help me to rely on His guidance and wisdom in all that I do, that I may know and understand Your will for my life. Open my heart to receive Your truth and grant me the courage to follow wherever You may lead me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
