The Issachar Anointing.

Topic: The Issachar Anointing.

Text: 1 Chronicle 12 vs 32

Confessions: God is a God of time and season. He will surely grant me an understanding of the times  and I shall be outstanding in all things in Jesus' mighty name. Amen.

The Bible says in 1 Chronicles 12 vs 32 thus: "And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment". These are profound words. They are also words meant for a season like this in the life of every child of God.

Success is not happenstance, it is "timestance". It is not a matter of grandstanding , it is a matter of understanding! Understanding is the roadmap of life, the food of success and the pillar of every promotion. If God is a God of time and season, success cannot come for those who don't have an understanding of such time and season. The children of Issachar succeeded phenomenally because they had understanding of the times. They prospered. They dominated their generation. They lived above errors and their glory is still being celebrated till today.

You can have such a profile! Yes, you can. But you need to have an understanding of the times. Young people must know when to read their books; marry, get serious with God and pursue things that are beyond reproach.  Older people must know what their ages call for and pursue substance and not shadow. In our careers, ministries, marriages and other engagements of life, understanding of times is crucial.
What do we mean by this understanding of times? It means perception, penetration and planning as a result of insight and foresight. Late Chinua Achebe said this in one of his books: A sensible man does not run after little rats when his age mates are running after bigger games! This is a literary description of understanding. Knowing what to do at the right time.

This time calls for prayers; restraint; vigilance; quietness; bridge-building; word-study; self-examination; evangelism; courage and joyful disposition. It calls for active engagement of the Holy Spirit in our walk with God. It demands laying "aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us....." It calls for useful fellowship and investment in the Kingdom of God. It calls for sobriety and separation unto the Lord.

The world is competitive but your understanding will make you beat every competition. How can you get this? Ask God in prayers; study the word of God deeply, give blindly to the things of God; cultivate useful relationships and keep an open mind about everything and everyone. Your mind will open into the possibilities of God within and around you in Jesus' name. Amen. Shalom!
