The Anointing Is the Music of Your Life

Mark Virkler's picture

The following is two-way journaling from Lyle Thomas, a missionary to Russia who is taking the Christian Leadership University course, REN 206 Increasing the Anointing.

Lord, speak to me concerning the anointing in my life.


Anointing is the music of your life. It is not merely true that music can carry an anointing, but music itself is an analogy of what the anointing is. All your works, all your love, your efforts, your life given to me fit together into a beautiful harmony of love and flow that comes out through you in a way that speaks to those who receive it. It comes out as a flow of the love that was poured into it, and it comes out as a thing of beauty and love and passion and as an offering to those who receive it. It has its own internal harmony, structure, rhythm, cadence, and progression.

As you jump into this anointing under my leadership, you become a vessel of my love and creative life-giving flow that ministers healing to the nations. Music can be improvised or carefully crafted, but even when carefully crafted, it need not be un-anointed. Do not think that because you work hard on your vision that it is without anointing. It is like Beethoven, who worked hard and constantly corrected his music, but it had a great anointing, which is to say an internal beauty, flow, and message that carried power with it to the hearers. Only work to craft under the anointing, in meditative flow, in concert with me and my spirit, flowing within you. You can think, but let your thoughts be guided by my love and energy.

You have a certain anointing when you lead a group of people whom are you are bringing into relationship with you, each other, and with me and my ways. You have a beauty of form and gate that allows my spirit to flow through you for the benefit of everyone. When you are not focused on you and your genius, you can be full of my spirit and my ways so that the result is truly beautiful.

You do have the anointing, the anointing to minister love, truth, grace, and transformation to individuals, couples, families, and to groups that you work with. You have an anointing to give out of the investment I have made in you to cause others to flow to an even greater level of anointing. Let them stand on your shoulders and jump further, swim more powerfully, and move in greater love, power and sacrificial anointing than you have guessed possible. Give away yourself in concert with my love and energy flowing through you, and you will experience the anointing that I truly intended for you. You are already walking in it, but you are destined to walk in even greater measures of my anointing.

I have great depths of my spirit for you, ready to come out of you; they are welling up within you even now, and you will learn to tap into this flow. It is there and bubbling up even now. Your dreams are a foretaste of this anointing flowing up in you. You are a man of passion and an articulate spokesman for the kingdom. Do not doubt that I have raised you up to be just what you are feeling within your spirit. This is all true and a work of my spirit. I have put this thirst and vision within you. 

Tune to me, attune your ear and your heart to me and my call, for I am near to you. Let your heart vibrate with me, and let your ear resonate with my loving sound. My music is flowing in you and your attuning to it will tune you to my love life flowing through you. When you are down and not flowing with that life, it is not a sign that I am far away but that I am not the center of your affections and of your attuning. Retune in those moments and I will fill you afresh, and you will have the living water flow through you for the benefit of your own heart and that of those around you. 

The anointing is within you, bubbling up. It is there and ready to grow inside you. I have put it in there by my spirit, and it is a fountain that is moving and growing within you. It is available and you can access it by accessing my glory within. Look to me, behold me. Get to know my glory, and you will experience a growth in that river within that is available to you as my child, as my witness in this world. It is a mighty river that carries great power, and I am eager to pour it out more to you and that you walk in this mighty power, for the restoration of families, and the healing of the nations.

I am working in you, and you are learning to sense that growth within, for you are tapped into the source of the greatest power on earth, that of my spirit. That power within, the anointing that you share within your spirit with me - that is the source of the changes that you can bring to the earth, as you bring heaven to earth. I am in and flowing out through you. You can grow in this grace, for it is available to all my children. Look to me, sense your sprit within you, and let my love flow through you.

Keep meditating on all that we have discussed, for it all relates to this very subject, and you will begin to sense more and more that flow moving within you in a way that produces real world results. That is the way I want my children to work, for that is the way of the spirit. It is a way of loving flow that comes from deep within, and not from the decision to make the right choice. That is a much lower level functioning than that which I desire for my children. I desire a more holistic, entire body mind spirit connection that results in a dynamic flow of muscle and mental power and might in the spirit that come across in power and passion to those around it. This is felt by others as an act of a loving God. This is what produces real world change. Not merely doing the right thing.

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with over half a million views just on YouTube).


Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
