PROFITS OF DEDICATION
By DIGC24 July 2020
Your level of commitment determines your level of anointing and lifting. The reason why we are not all anointed at the same level is that our commitment is not at the same level.
SCRIPTURE: I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: Psalms 89:20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your level of commitment determines your level of anointing and lifting.
In our previous studies, we saw various reasons why we should be dedicated to God. We saw, amongst others, that we were created by God and for God and that we cannot survive without Him. We also looked at the implications of dedication.
Today, we shall be looking at the profits of dedication. God has not called us to serve Him in vain (Isaiah 45:19). Dedication to God is accompanied with benefits.
Now, what are the profits of dedication? I give you just two:
- Dedication brings both the unction and elevation to life.
Your level of commitment determines your level of anointing and lifting. The reason why we are not all anointed at the same level is that our commitment is not at the same level. The reason why we are not all lifted to the same level in life is that we don’t have a uniform level of commitment to God. God is a Rewarder of the diligent. God found a servant in David and anointed him with his Holy Oil (Psalm 89:20). Your commitment will guarantee your anointing and lifting.
- Dedication to God brings distinction in life.
A dedicated person stands out in life. Dedicated people are in a class of their own. When God anointed David in 1st Samuel 16:13, God set him apart. David the dedicated, who was a man after God’s heart, was set apart by God in the presence of his brothers. He was in a class of his own. He was set ahead of his brethren, ahead of his age mates, ahead of those who once mocked him, and ahead of those who thought he was wasting his time following God. And David was not alone in this: people also thought that some of us were wasting our time when we decided to follow and serve God. We wasted our youth on God instead of wasting it on disco parties. And because of that, God set us apart for Himself.
Beloved, your dedication to God sets you apart. My counsel is, don’t hold yourself or anything you have back from serving God. Go all the way with God. It is not a waste to be dedicated to God. I prophesy fresh grace for dedication to God on your life in this season, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Your level of commitment determines your level of anointing and lifting.
- Make dedication to God your sole priority in life.
- Be persistent in dedication to God.
PRAYER: O LORD, help me to make dedication to You a priority of life. Help me to be persistent in dedication to You, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
