MEMORIZE: Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: James 5:14
BIBLE READING 1 JOHN 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Yokes represent bondage and they are of different kinds. The yoke of sickness is a terrible one for anyone to bear and it must be completely destroyed. This is why you need divine anointing to destroy the yoke of sickness.
This was a yoke that kept a man bound for thirty-eight years at the pool of Bethesda (John 5:2-9 ). The yoke of sickness wasted thirty-eight years of his life but he got his deliverance from that bondage when he encountered the anointing upon Jesus Christ.
No child of God should be bound by the yoke of sickness since His anointing is available for us as we see in our memory verse today. A Church that is void of Gods anointing is not worth attending because the Church is the last hope of the sick, especially for ailments described by orthodox medical practitioners as incurable or terminal.
Testimonies of divine healings in our Church programmes confirm the importance of Gods anointing, particularly when it comes to the destruction of yokes of sickness.
One case that readily comes to mind is that of a sister who a doctor had said would die within hours. Her husband left her in the hospital, only to invite his mistress to come and spend the night with him in their home. What about your wife? the mistress asked.
She has only a few hours to live before she dies in the hospital the unfaithful husband said, thinking the wife had reached the end of her life.
To the glory of God, that same night, the anointing destroyed the yoke of sickness in the sisters life; she discharged herself and went straight home, only to meet her husband with the mistress.
Handkerchiefs that carry divine anointing have destroyed yokes of sickness, times without number.
The anointing also serves as a defensive weapon against the onslaught of the enemy. Psalms 105:15 says, ..touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Beloved, as you seek the anointing of the Almighty God, every problematic situation you are faced with will be resolved to His glory, in the mighty name of Jesus.
You need the anointing to overcome spiritual obstacles. Seek it from a genuine man of God.

HYMN: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS O GOD MY FATHER
1. Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.
Refrain: Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
all I have needed thy hand hath provided
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
2. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, sun, moon, and stars in their courses above join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.
3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
