Break Through the Wall

Gloria Copeland
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh...ye were without Christ [the Anointed One], being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ [the Anointed One] Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ [the Anointed One].

Have you ever hit a brick wall? No, not a physical one, but an emotional one. The kind that comes when you’ve chased every lead you knew to get a job, or get the money to pay a bill, or learn a new skill to get a better job. You know the feeling. It’s frustrating, and it usually drives even a weak believer to cry out to God.

Well, there’s one sure way to punch a good-size hole in that wall and watch it start to crumble until it is totally obliterated! I call it factoring in the anointing.

According to the Scriptures, before you were born again, you were without the Anointed One (Jesus). Well, if you were without the Anointed One, you were also without the anointing, right? But now, you are in the Anointing of Jesus. That anointing is available to you in every situation you face to destroy (obliterate completely!) every yoke of bondage. The Anointing of God is God on flesh doing those things only God can do.

That’s why you can have hope in the most hopeless situations. It doesn’t matter who you are or what color your skin is. It doesn’t matter where you live or if you never made it past the sixth grade. You can break out of that hopeless situation if you’ll factor in the anointing.

The anointing factor is what the world always forgets. They say, “We’ll build this wall so big nobody will ever get through it. We’ll build it big enough to block out the gospel and keep the people under our thumb.” But they fail to consider the anointing factor. It destroys walls. If you don’t believe it, ask the believers in Berlin!

So whatever wall you are facing today, begin factoring in the anointing in your life. If someone says to you, “Well Brother, you can’t expect to succeed. You can’t expect to prosper. You can’t expect to be healed…” ask yourself, Is there a yoke holding me back? Maybe your yoke is a lack of education, the need for a better job, or a sickness.

If a yoke is holding you back, then rejoice! Because the anointing will destroy it!

Speak the Word

“The anointing factor removes every burden and breaks through every yoke and wall that may try to hold me back.”  (Isaiah 10:27)
