SMARTER THAN AN APRON
(You Carry The Anointing Of God On You)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Luke 8:46 GNB “…Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I knew it when power went out of me.””
◀ LET’S TALK
Acts 19:11-12 tells us that “…God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.” Although the handkerchiefs carried the anointing, they couldn’t move around on their own. They had to be taken to the sick or afflicted, and laid on them. Upon making contact with those who were sick or afflicted, miracles happened: “…the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.”
If handkerchiefs or aprons, which have no intelligence, could do such mighty things because of the divine virtue that temporarily rubbed on them, the human body, which is actually designed to receive and accommodate the power of God, will do much more. With its high level of intelligence, and communicative, locomotive ability, the Holy Spirit-indwelt human body becomes God’s mobile operational centre to shatter burdens, destroy yokes, and completely obliterate sicknesses, diseases, and infirmities. Glory to God!
In Acts 5:14-16, as Peter walked the streets of Jerusalem, people brought their sick and laid them along his path, so his shadow could fall on them. The power and flow of the Spirit is recognisable. Peter didn’t have to invite people to his shadow. The people acknowledged the presence of the Spirit in him when they saw the supernatural results it produced.
We’re full of power and virtue, because we have the Holy Spirit! Through us, God communicates and transports His power wherever He desires. When we stretch or lay our hands on anyone, there’s an effusion of divine virtue and health. When we speak the Word, there’s an outflow of power and grace. We dispense the glory, because we’re God carrying vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7). Hallelujah!

Isaiah 10:27, Mark 5:27-30
Dear Father, I thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit that resides and is fully operational in me. When I show up, burdens are lifted, and yokes destroyed. I’m a God-carrying vessel, and a dispenser of eternal verities. Blessed be God!
