Morning: 1 Peter 2:20-25
Noon: Psalms 85
Evening: Isaiah 53:7
In Galatians 5:22-23 the Bible tells us the virtues that are proof of the Holy Spirit’s presence in a believer. Just like a plant is known by its fruits, God’s anointed should be recognized by the presence of this luscious and healthy fruit. Unfortunately, there are some who boast and say they are anointed, but when offenses are received, is it love that governs over the situation? Or is it anger that makes itself present? In trials and tribulations, does peace and joy make the difference, or do they live in bitterness and desperation? When someone provokes them undeservingly, is it temperance and meekness that help lift the name of Christ on high, or is it dissension and division that get ahold of the situation?
Child of God, take warning. Just like olives cannot come from the fig tree and figs cannot come from the vine, the believer who is anointed cannot produce any other fruit that does not emanate from the Holy Spirit. You should evaluate yourself, because whoever has been anointed with the Holy Spirit has been anointed to show evidence of that anointment at all times.
Anointment does not give fruits by seasons. Anointment always displays its fruits.

Noon Psalm 85
LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land:
Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people,
Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3Thou hast taken away all thy wrath:
Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4Turn us, O God of our salvation,
And cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?
Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6Wilt thou not revive us again:
That thy people may rejoice in thee?
7Shew us thy mercy, O LORD,
And grant us thy salvation.
8I will hear what God the LORD will speak:
For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: But let them not turn again to folly.
9Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;
That glory may dwell in our land.
10Mercy and truth are met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11Truth shall spring out of the earth;
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good;
And our land shall yield her increase.
13Righteousness shall go before him;
And shall set us in the way of his steps.
