Oil of Gladness

[Saturday, June 24]

“I have poured forth an anointing of gladness upon you even when some expect you to be sad. For it shall wash over you like oil causing you to experience relief from every trial, and many will say of you, how can you smile this way?”

Prophetic Scripture:

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows (Hebrews 1:9).

One of the earmarks of the Christian life is the ability to experience joy in the midst of adversity. Part of that ability comes from choosing to keep our eyes on the Lord over tough circumstances. This is definitely an important part to experiencing gladness in the Lord. However, we find God referring to Jesus in Hebrews 1:9 by saying that because of His Son’s commitment to righteousness, there was a special anointing poured forth upon Him. It’s called the oil of gladness. When something is anointed by God, it means His tangible power steps in. When God anointed Jesus with the oil of gladness, it was a surge of divine power that enabled Him to be filled with gladness amidst negative circumstances. It wasn’t something that had to be mustered up by digging deep into the strength of human fortitude. Instead, the oil of gladness bursts forth from within supernaturally.

When the oil of gladness washes over you, you feel a sense of unexplainable relief that makes you smile. Others cannot understand how you can be glad when times are so tough. So just rest today and believe for the oil of gladness to pour forth upon you!


Lord, I receive the oil of gladness right now. I have faith for it to bubble up from within me supernaturally. Let it pour forth upon me and cause me to smile and experience relief and victory! In the Name of Jesus, amen.
