God has a specific plan and purpose for each of us. And He has divinely equipped us to carry out our God-given assignments. Therefore, we do not get to choose our assignment. Instead,
our job is to discover God’s will for our lives. When we do, we will
tap into the power, or the anointing, that is available to carry out His
plan and purpose.

A. The anointing is a divine enablement from God that produces supernatural results. We have an unction to function (or an anointing) to carry out God’s specific
will for our lives.

1. If what you are doing is not producing positive results, you have to question whether you have
discovered your God-given assignment.

B. When God anointed Saul to be the king of Israel, he gave him a supernatural ability to do the job (1 Samuel 10:1).
1. To symbolize that anointing, the prophet Samuel poured oil on Saul’s
head and kissed him, and said, “Is it not because the Lord hath
anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?”
a. Likewise, God has anointed each of us for a particular assignment.
b. He gives us a divine enablement to carry out the task.
2. What can you do to discover God’s specific will for your life?
a. Develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and allow Him to guide your decisions.
b. Operate in unconditional love.
c. Renew your mind with the Word of God and make a decision to obey it.
d. Assemble yourself with other Believers by attending church regularly.
e. Discover your passion and the things you do easily.

C. It is vital that we do not focus on what someone else is doing but on what God wants us to do.
1. Focusing on the assignments of others can distract us from discovering our divine assignment.
a. Learn to be satisfied with your portion. Refuse to be jealous of someone else’s portion.
b. If you think you have discovered God’s will for your life, ask yourself, “Is there an anointing here that supports me?”
c. The anointing removes burdens and destroys yokes.
d. If you are experiencing burdens and yokes, you are not anointed to do what you are doing.

D. Four things will be evident when you have located the will of God for your life, and the anointing to get the job done:
1. Restoration. Your dignity will be restored (1 Samuel 10:2).
a. God will restore everything the devil has stolen from you.
2. Unusual progress. You will experience supernatural progress in your life (1 Samuel 10:3).
a. Measure where you are, and keep in mind that everyone who experiences this anointing will go forward.
b. Unfortunately, many people do not stay in the will of God long enough to receive confirmation. There will be tests you will have to
3. Supernatural favor. You will have the favor of God on your life. God will give you things you didn’t even ask for (1 Samuel
a. The favor of God also divinely arranges things for you.
4. Repositioning by God. You will have a change of status (1 Samuel 10:5-6).
a. When this anointing comes upon your life, you will have divine
strength, excessive growth, and the wisdom to predict danger (Psalm
92:10-14, AMP).
b. You will remain productive and profitable, even in old age.

E. Other ways in which we can get into the realm of the anointing, and stay there.
1. We can begin to develop a thirst for the anointing (Isaiah 55:1).
2. How do we as Christians get thirsty?
a. We begin to seek God more, and enjoy His presence to a greater degree (Psalm 63:1-5).
b. We make a decision to be grateful until our gratitude becomes a habit.
3. In Isaiah 55:1, God tells us to buy without money. How do we do that?
a. We buy with effectual, fervent prayer (Zechariah 10:1).
b. The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous person makes power available that is dynamic in its working (James 5:16, AMP).
c. Thanksgiving, praise, and prayer make the power of God available.
d. We will only receive His power when our motives are fueled by our love for God.
