What a difference meekness makes! Meekness guarantees a Christian's anointing. It means to be God-conscious, Christ-conscious, Cross-conscious, and Resurrection-conscious. Meekness takes away Adam's personality and brings Christ's personality (which was the Father's personality) into the believer's individuality. Every person is different and has individuality, but no one has to live in his fallen personality. It is so important for every believer to understand this. When the Holy Spirit takes over, we definitely retain individuality, but now we are Spirit-controlled, Spirit-led, Word-of- God-anointed individuals.
Psalm 40:6 says, "Sacrifice and burnt offerings thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required." Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
In Leviticus 14, to cleanse the leper, the first thing the priest anointed with oil was the right ear. Before a man could be anointed for service or for his walk (represented by anointing the thumb and the toe), he needed to be anointed to listen, so he could hear from God. Likewise, the believer starts to experience his anointing by being anointed when he listens. That happens by the fruit of the Spirit called meekness (Galatians 5:22-23; Psalm 25:9).
