Psalm 45:7(KJV); Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
The Spirit of Lordship is at work in the life of every child of God.
The essence of this Spirit is revealed in our theme scripture. The Bible says that God has anointed you with the oil of gladness ABOVE THY FELLOWS.
The message version of the same scripture lends deeper clarity to this revelation.
It says, “… And that is why God, your very own God, poured fragrant oil on your head, Marking you out as king from among your dear companions.”
Christians who have not understood this truth spend too much of their energy comparing themselves with their peers and coming up at the wrong end of the comparison.
It does not matter what kind of similarities you may share with your contemporaries, whether they are attending the same class or frequenting the same places.
You have been anointed above thy fellows and made a king from among your companions.
Wear this consciousness as the fundamental source of your identity. Let no shadows darken your star because God has marked your place at the top.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You have been anointed above thy fellows and made a king from among your companions.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for who I am. I stand in the confidence of one who is always above and never beneath, the head and not the tail in all that I do, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
