The Holy Spirit often moves through a “Breaker” anointing. Christ is the Anointed One and His anointing flows through us based on the situation. It has great impact: a striking of one thing against another, a forceful contact or collision. As we are moving forward, the impact of this anointing of the Holy Spirit is greater than we can see, and it can have everlasting results.
This anointing destroys yokes, cuts through, and breaks the darkness with a thick, sudden, and sharp Herculean force. It comes against any blockage of the manifestation of God’s will and collapses the hindrances that need to be broken, not just known, but also unknown oppositions.
If we break a spider web in the corner, we destroy the house of the spider, and he must flee. This happens when we come against the kingdom of darkness. In the name of Jesus, the enemy must flee. When the Holy Spirit brings the Breakers anointing on and through us, it destroyed once strongholds and for all. This anointing penetrates the darkness, and the glory of God is revealed, from glory to glory!
Isaiah 45:2-3 “I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.”
Fiery darts are flaming arrows, coming at us like missiles, to inflame us. They come in various ways. A negative, critical, dark thought drops into our minds unexpectedly. An interaction with someone brings an offense. A trial we usually handle with grace throws us into a desperate state. Our faith in who Christ is and what He has done shields us from these attacks.
God uses every fiery dart that comes against us to empower us to exercise our faith in Him. The more the attacks, the more our faith grows and the more impact we have against the kingdom of darkness. During these times, God prepares us to overcome future opponents, regardless of what they are, from faith to faith!
Because we are advancing the Kingdom, our adversary attempts to cause us to be ineffective. However, the opposite happens: the fire of the Holy Spirit increases in and through our lives. We put on Christ, appropriating our shining armor. We stand and extinguish all the fiery darts, walking victoriously, from glory to glory!
Ephesians 6:16 “above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”
Not looking at the things which are seen, but looking at the things which are not seen, doesn’t mean we ignore what we should handle. It’s being able to see a condition from an eternal perspective. The more our focus is on the things of God, the more our affliction appears small. As we look to God, we believe in His greatness and ability to help us through in all seasons.
What we focus on often becomes clearer than what surrounds it. When we go to a movie theater and sit too close to the screen, we do not see the entire picture correctly. We step back and then it becomes clearer. To keep our focus on the Lord, we sometimes need to step back to regain clear insight. As we walk by faith, our ability to focus on Christ, and our determination to keep that focus, increases.
Problems come to the surface, trying to make us focus our attention on the problems, instead of on the promises of God. As we magnify the Lord, all else is minimized. We keep our eyes on God, His person, His promises, His purposes, and His principles. We exalt the Lord. We magnify His holy name and all that is not of Him is brought low, from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
As we grow in the Lord, we learn to depend on Him in all circumstances. We know we can wait on Him. As we look eagerly for Him, expecting His mighty works, we mount up with wings like eagles. Every trial takes us higher in our faith, higher in Him, and teaches us to soar.
For an eagle, a storm is an opportunity to soar. Eagles can catch the wind of any raging storm and rise above it. They use the air pressure to ascend higher as they lock their wings and rest, weathering the storm from a place above it.
In whatever storm we are facing, we receive the strength of the Lord. We soar above the dark clouds. As we wait upon the Lord, the weight of His glory increases. We enter a rest that is unexplainable. We call upon other eagles and unite with them.
We find we can soar higher than we did in the past. We discover that in the waiting we received more of Christ’s anointing. In Him we can seek those things that are above and not beneath. In Him we can conquer those things that are beneath. In Him we abide; we rest, and we are victorious, from glory to glory!
Isaiah 40:31 “But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
The way to beat defeat is to remember the victory we already have in Christ Jesus, our Lord, Savior, Deliverer, and King. Our faith in who Jesus is and what He has conquered enables us to overcome defeat. We are in a spiritual war, so whatever we battle needs to be fought in the spirit and by the Spirit of God. Through our faith in Christ, we are more than conquerors!
Some people feel defeated because they cannot conquer a weakness in their lives. The more they try, the more defeated they become. Others feel defeated because a goal they have been pursuing keeps coming to a stop. A relationship someone keeps believing will work out continues to break apart. Defeat brings condemnation, guilt and a haunting sense of failure.
We overcome by doing what the spirit of defeat doesn’t want us to do: yield to the empowerment of the Spirit of God and take another step of faith. The Holy Spirit releases a second wind, an ability to arise out of the ashes of failure. An anointing to give something another try or try a whole new thing. Reach for victory over a weakness, believing that in God, we are victorious, from glory to glory!
1 John 5:4-5 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”
We can look back today and see where God has brought us out of situations we were so concerned with in the past. God delivered us! He delivered us then; He delivers us today, and He will deliver us tomorrow. We learn to know God’s faithfulness. We find we can always trust Him.
To trust is to have confidence in; to have an assured reliance on the character, ability, strength or truth of someone or something. We attain this as we grow in the knowledge of that someone or something. To trust God for what He can do, we must meditate on who He is. Knowing His character helps us know His ability. It’s to the same degree we know the Lord, that we trust Him. The trust we have in ourselves decreases as our trust in God increases.
We trust He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He has delivered us from spiritual death. The one who raises the dead surely can deliver us out of any trying circumstances. Our God is loving, good, gentle, faithful, dependable, reliable, unchangeable, amazing, awesome, glorious and more than enough. This amazing God takes us from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 1:9-10 “Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.”
