1 Samuel I6: 13
“Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from the day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
There is no exploit without anointing.
The more anointed you are, the more victorious you will become. Act 1:8_ when we speak of anointing, we talk of the Holy Spirit. Whoever is thirsting for exploit should desire the anointing of God. From the very moment David was anointed, he began to do exploit. The first battle he fought was against Goliath, and he won awesomely. It is not by power not by might but by my spirit saith the Lord.
Judges 3: 8-11.
Othniel was able to conquer Chushanrishathaim and deliver the Israelites from their enemies because he possessed the Spirit of God, the anointing. Also in the book of Judges 6, Gideon did exploit and delivered the Israelite from the Midianites because the Spirit of the Lord was upon him. And so also was Samson. He enjoyed supernatural strength because the presence of the Lord was with him; he was full of the Holy Spirit, the anointing.
However, the anointing upon a man’s life is not as important as the ability to keep it running. Many people are anointed, but only few people make it last as long as it should. Saul was anointed, and so was David. However, the anointing of Saul only lasted for less than a year, while that of David kept running for forty years.
