The Breakers Anointing

“He who opens the breach goes up before them; they break through and pass the gate, going out by it. Their king passes on before them, the Lord at their head” (Micah 2:13).

Micah prophesied to Israel about God’s judgment on their oppressors. “Therefore thus says the Lord: behold, against this family I am devising disaster, from which you cannot remove your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be a time of disaster” (Micah 2:3). God was grieved about the treatment of his people, especially the women, who are driven out of their houses and their children taken away. He promised to assemble the remnant of his people, like sheep in a fold and a pasture or like a noisy multitude of men. He promised to open the breach (barrier), go ahead of them as they break out and lead them out of their confined spaces.

God leads his people to safety, abundance and to a broader place where we can thrive. This is like Isaiah’s saying to Israel to enlarge the place of their tent and let out their curtains. They were commanded to stretch out and lengthen their cords and stakes. “For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities” (Isaiah 54:3). Moses was anointed to lead Israel out of their confinement in Isreal and into the promised land. Pharaoh pursued the people and they found themselves confined between an army and the Red Sea. God went ahead of them to divide the sea and allowed them safe passage.

The same sea that allowed safe passage for God’s people swallowed up their enemies. God will not allow his children to be pursued when he opens a way for them. We need the supernatural power of the anointing to lead us out of confinement and limitations. There are barriers that have been created by the devil to limit people such as gender, race, class, educational status or age. God is a barrier breaking God and the anointing which is power for service, is able to break glass ceilings and break down iron gates. “Now Jericho was shut up inside and outside because of the people of Israel. None went out, and none came in” (Joshua 6:1) Israel did not have the equipment to bulldoze the walls of Jericho.

Nevertheless, God gave them supernatural power and the anointing to tear down the walls. Many man made systems, walls and barriers have been erected to try to keep God’s people out of what he has promised. Promises include financial freedom and being free from debt. Many people want access to better employment, health care or education, for example. Employment systems and demonic powers try to keep people from being promoted or advancing at work. All power belongs to our God and he will level the crooked places, make a way through the wilderness and break through barriers and boulders. “For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall” (Psalm 18:29).
