Hello all! It is officially the first Sunday of the year and another Sunday Style Post! Congratulations and Happy new year! We are smack at the beginning of 2018, revving and ready to have a successful year! May blessings, peace, grace and amazing windfalls be yours through the year! I know for a fact that 2018 is going to be a really awesome year for us all!
I set off this morning to church with my dearest mom. Usually, it’s a great bonding time for my parents and I. Dad was a bit tired today and passed on this morning’s service. My mom and I set off, dressed in our Sunday bests.
My Sunday Style
For today’s service, I opted for a print dress by The Lady Maker from the store. I teamed it with a velvet turban by Abaya Lagos also from Zinkata. I tried something different with my turban this time. I tied a silk pink print scarf around it and it gave it a different look. Black pumps, Earrings and Purple print bag and I was ready to go receive the word for the week.
Today’s sermon was titled “The Power of Anointing”. The vicar emphasised once again on the implication of today’s service and us all being present on the first Sunday of 2018. It rekindled feelings of gratitude in my soul and there we were encompassed in praise and joy, excited and ready to unfurl what wonders 2018 has in stock for us.The vicar talked about Power and how being in a position of power allows you to influence the behaviour of others.
Examples of different circumstances that gives people the power to influence people :
- If you are in an influential position. (THE PRESIDENT)
- Money: Wealth
- Negative Energies
For today’s sermon, our focus was on the supreme power of the Lord. All power belongs to the Lord, he created the heavens and the earth.No man can stop the purpose of the Lord.
Job 42:2:”I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
We all have a destiny to fulfil and God’s plans can never be thwarted.If you have the power of the anointing of God , you will be able to manifest the purpose of the Lord in your life.This year, we should all strive to acquire the power of the Lord’s annointing. Once we are equipped with the power that comes from his anointing, we would be able to carry out our lives directions with his protection, guidance and protection. Getting the anointing power of the Lord is not a day’s journey. It comes from yielding yourself to the Lord and actively seeking, praying and fasting for it. Once you are blessed with the anointing power of the Lord, you are able to do exploits for the Lord.
In Psalm 89: 20-22
I have found David my servant;
with my sacred oil I have anointed him.
21 My hand will sustain him;
surely my arm will strengthen him.
22 The enemy will not get the better of him;
the wicked will not oppress him.
In the new year, let us rededicate ourselves to the Lord and enjoy the peace that comes from constant fellowship, faith and being under the anointing power of the Lord. It is my utmost wish for us all!
Have a blessed 2018,
