Anointing for Elevation – The Life of David

How do you access this anointing that can take you to the next level?

Anointing is the grace provided to you by the Holy Spirit to go to the next level.

1 John 2:27 – But the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true and no lie, and as He has taught you, abide in Him.

Every child of God (Baptized and Born Again) is spirit filled and has access to the anointing.

The Criteria to access this anointing is that you need to have a deep relationship with God. 

Being Born Again means you have a relationship with Jesus. The moment you are born again, you have a power that comes over you, you have access to the Holy Spirit. Do everything that you need to in order to have a deep relationship with God. Coming to church is not enough to claim that you have a relationship with God.

You need to be a carrier of the Anointing. In order to move to the next level you must have that deep relationship with Him.

What are your priorities?

“You cannot say you love God (or anyone for that matter) and you have no time to fellowship with Him.” Pastor Austyn

You must be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 92:10 – But my horn You have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.

Number 11:8 – The people went around and gathered, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked in pans, and made cakes of it. And the taste of it was like the taste of fresh oil.

There is something about the freshness of that oil

Acts 4:31 – And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.

 If you don’t have access to the Holy Spirit you will struggle.  

Psalm 23:5 – You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

 1 Samuel 6: 1-13 – The Ark Returned to Israel

The Ark at that time was what carried the Presence of God. Now you have the ark inside of you through the Holy Spirit. You need to carry the presence of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. You have been working by might and power, but you need the Holy Spirit to function in the anointing.

Illustration-process03When David was anointed by Samuel, David received the Spirit of boldness. That anointed will be tested. The anointing is what distinguishes and separates you from the rest.

1 Samuel 16:12 – And he sent and brought him in. And he was ruddy, with beautiful eyes and good form. And Jehovah said, Arise, anoint him. For this is he.

David’s brothers were not selected for the anointing even though they had been placed before the prophet to be chosen, however, it was David who came back from the field tending to Sheep who was chosen. Anointing can locate the right carrier and person who can handle it.

1 Samuel 6:13 – And Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers. And the spirit of Jehovah came on David from that day forward. And Samuel rose up and went to Ramah.

The anointing helps you to kill your enemies. It puts a new boldness in you that you are no longer afraid. David had fought a lion and a bear. If you want to go to the next level, you have to be willing to face challenges.

Anointing is not for sale. Ignore those that try to “sell” you the anointing for it cannot be purchased. Anointing can only be released by the power of the Holy Spirit.

“The anointing located David, and therefore, the anointing will locate you in Jesus Name. “ – Pastor Austyn

1 Samuel 17:36 – Your servant killed both the lion and the bear. And this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, since he has defied the armies of the living God.


There is a lion that seeks to devour you (the devil) but you have a greater lion inside of you from the tribe of Judah. (Judah means praise).

The Anointing does the following:

  • It helps you face challenges
  • It prepares a table before your enemies
  • It gives you a new boldness to conquer giants
  • It protects you
  • It Elevates you
  • It breaks the Yoke
  • It defends you
  • It brings promotion (1 Samuel 17:34-35)

What are you doing with the anointing in your life?

What is your relationship with God before you go to the next level?

Elevation comes with a price and the cost is based on your relationship with God.

The condition attached to your promotion is your relationship with God.

David overcame a spiritual battle as he faced his Goliath.

Who is that uncircumcised philistine in your life that you have been tormented by?

Today is the day that you will overcome that giant.

When the anointing is on your life it will attract jealousy and hatred, but it is also there to take you to the next level. You will rise and you will conquer!
