In order to enlarge your faith, you need to pull down every mental and emotional stronghold which blocks your spirits’ growth. You need to silence every voice that rises against the word and will of God for your life.
You will need to maintain and increase momentum, just because you have lost it, doesn’t mean you can’t get it back.
You will need to rely more upon the anointing of the Holy Spirit than upon your spiritual gifts and strength of character.
The anointing breaks, that is shatters into pieces, the yoke which weighs you down, performance orientation,other peoples’ expectations,legalism and religion,inferiority,false shame and guilt,unconfessed sin, self hatred and self unforgiveness. Whatever is a weight upon you is not of God. His power and glory is heavy and weighty but in a way which empowers.
Shatters so it cannot be put back together again
27 So it will be in that day, that the burden of the Assyrian will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck. The yoke will be broken because of the fat.[oil makes you anointed and neck fat, so yoke breaks
Assyria had a plan to destroy Gods’ people and and Jerusalem. God destroyed them instead. The yoke of Assyria was broken off the Israelites, and in this scripture a picture is given of the oil which is now a symbol of the Holy Spirit being “fat” upon his peoples’ necks that the yoke would be broken off.
Jesus tells us to take on his burden which is easy and light, this is because he gives us his anointing to be strong in him. He in fact helps to carry our yokes.
YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY ANOINTED TO RELEASE CAPTIVES
Isaiah 61:1-3– [The words that Jesus read in the temple in Luke chapter four], also apply to us. The lord has anointed and appointed your to walk in the directives of these verses both old and new testament.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has appointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the broken hearted and to announce that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favour has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair.
For the Lord has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for his own glory.”
1 JOHN 2:27- The anointing both abides and teaches us
We are in a war but must PICK OUR BATTLES. Matthew 11:29,30
The yoke which Jesus gives is easy and light
You can’t fight every battle or free every person, accept those who Jesus brings to you, refer those whom he does not.They may not be yours, not friends of your destiny
Monitor your personal wellbeing, don’t burn our through over work and taking on situations which he has not called you too, use heavenly wisdom and you will wall in victory.
Have your own intercessors when you move forward, ask God to show you who they are and communicate with them. Don’t move ahead of the strength of your intercessary cover. Sometimes it is good to just ask God to speak to the people he chooses to anoint to pray for your current situation. These are casual or one time intercessors.
Remove spiritual contamination and defilement through application of the blood,divide your spirit an soul, through removing spiritual contamination caused by contact with the bound or broken or sinful.
Be sure to recognise and use empathy which is a spirit emotion not sympathy which is a soul emotion. Sympathy drains and disempowers, empathy empowers and releases.
Front line warriors need a place of retreat,we are battering rams against the spirit realm and sometimes this produces; unexplainable sickness, Spiritual PTSD, nervous system disorders and immune system disorders. Not all of the diseases are caused by our contact with the demonic realm but I believe some are, or are strictly medical but worsened by our battles.
MAINTAIN YOUR SPHERE OF SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY
We can become casualties of war because we are out of our assigned areas.Police sometimes call this, walking across the tube. We are hit by “Friendly fire” because we moved from our assigned area of responsibility.
