FRESH AND FLOURISHING
Psalm 92:10 – 15
I have been anointed with fresh oil.
My eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
The obsession of God regarding the anointing oil upon the priests in the Old Testament is clear.
You cannot serve God with yesterday’s anointing.
The anointing oil was a mixture of key ingredients which when stale gave off a strange aroma.
IT IS WORTH THE TIME TO GET ANOINTED WITH FRESH OIL
MY EYES AND EARS
When you are anointed with fresh oil – it affects what you hear and see in life. Some people are always seeing their enemies and their problems.
FRESH OIL DETERMINES HOW YOU SEE LIFE
PALMS AND CEDARS
Fresh oil causes you to grow strong and become productive. The two main timbers used in the house of God – were cedars and palms.
FRESH OIL ADDS TO YOUR VALUE
PLANTED TO FLOURISH
Where you plant your heart – will determine where you flourish. Where you flourish is more important than how you flourish.
Flourishing as a leader is not as important as flourishing in your marriage and family.
FRESH OIL KEEPS YOUR PRIORITIES PURE
FLOURISHING IN OLD AGE
To get to old age and be able to stay fresh and flourishing – is the great testimony of the goodness of God.
Aim to get to old age and your life can still declare – the Lord is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
FRESH OIL IS GOD’S WAY OF KEEPING YOU FRESH
