You Anoint my Head with Oil,

. . . My Cup Overflows.

God, the Shepherd, makes us holy -sets us apart-so that we reflect Him in our daily lives. When God anoints us, He equips us to do work for the Kingdom. He softens our hearts, gives us discernment, guides us in our days, and gives the right words to say.

We spend time each November listing things we are thankful for. Might these items be results of God’s act of making us holy? The answer here could be some but not all.

We see persons who never seem to exhibit spiritual growth in their lives. Do some of God’s children receive more of God than others? The answer here could be God chooses the Spiritual gifts He wants each of us to have but it is up to us to develop them. Is it because God loves them any less than He loves the missionary or the evangelist? No, God loves us all the same.

  1. Hi Quiet Spirit -

    I believe God has a wonderful plan for each individual's life. However, we cannot come into all He has for us until we first accept His forgiveness and become disciples.

    Wow, this is an extensive subject. There's no way I could possibly say all that's going through my mind at the moment.

    Thought-provoking post.

    Susan :)


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
