The Unction to Function
A Word for the season
“The Unction to Function” — as that phrase came to me, I laughed, and I thought, “Oh Lord, I hope that was You, and if it was then I’m sorry but it sounds a bit twee!”
I heard that familiar chuckle, “I know how many people like a catch phrase, so I thought you’d like one of My catch phrases!”
I smiled and thought about it for a moment, but The LORD continued, “In this coming season, I will be tasking My People with things they will doubt they have the ability or capacity to fulfill.
That is when I will lay My Mantle on them. It is the mantle that carries the unction of My Holy Spirit to function in the way I need them to do so.”
He continued again, “There is a saying amongst you that ‘whom God calls, He equips’.
This is the fulfillment of that saying . To whomever I ask do something for My Kingdom, I will enable them and equip them to do as I ask — hence the phrase, ‘unction to function’.
Without that mantle, without that ability, without the unction, they will be unable to function as I ask them to!
So when you receive a tasking from Me, don’t fear nor tremble, don’t shy away, but ask Me to enable you to carry out that tasking in the strength and ability only I can give you.
Then step out in faith, and I will honour your faith and enable you to carry it through! Stepping out in faith is the hardest thing I will ask you to do, but when I give you the unction to do it, nothing will be able to prevent you from completing your task!”
This is Gods promise to us all today, and I encourage you all, if The LORD asks something of you, and you know that you know He has asked you, then trust Him and JUST DO IT — in the unction to function that He also gives you!
Remember David against Goliath; remember Sampson with the temple pillars; remember Moses striking the rock, or parting the Red Sea; remember Simon Peter walking on water.
All impossibilities until God enabled them to do it.
JUST DO IT!
