Isaiah 21:5 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  Oil of Joy.  Topics:  2 at end.

Babylon is Fallen
“The burden of the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the South sweep through, it comes from the wilderness, from an awesome land.
A grievous vision is declared to me. The treacherous man deals treacherously, and the destroyer destroys. Go up, Elam; attack! I have stopped all of Media’s sighing.
Therefore my thighs are filled with anguish. Pains have taken hold on me, like the pains of a woman in labor. I am in so much pain that I can’t hear. I so am dismayed that I can’t see.
My heart flutters. Horror has frightened me. The twilight that I desired has been turned into trembling for me.
They prepare the table. They set the watch. They eat. They drink. Rise up, you princes, oil the shield!”  (WEB)  (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com

Oil.  It had its place of service In the Old Testament.  For battle preparations, oil was used in a practical manner for preserving the quality of shields and for making them slippery against arrows and spears.  Oil was used practically in the baking of bread and in making other edibles.

It was especially important in the service of God in tradition and in worship.  In Exodus 30, the Israelites were told. ”You shall make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer: it shall be a holy anointing oil.”  (WEB)  Included here are instructions on how to create this special oil.

In Exodus 35, we see ways that oil was used in the service of God.  When Moses asked the congregation to make an offering for items to be used in the construction of the tabernacle, included in the list was oil, thusly described for them to bring:  “And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. . . . ”  In Leviticus 14, the priest is to ceremoniously sprinkle some olive oil seven times before the Lord. 

In Psalm 100:2, the Douay-Rheims Bible is great on joy! “Sing joyfully to God, all the earth: serve ye the Lord with gladness. Come in before his presence with exceeding great joy.”  In Isaiah 61:3, Isaiah speaks of the oil of joy.

Yes, in the Old Testament, God had special purposes for oil.  Can we not also worship and serve with an attitude of joy?  And can we not consider our lives oiled with it?  Yes.  Even in the midst of the unwanted or unexpected circumstances.  Although perhaps very difficult, we can find the oil of joy in making grievous decisions for ourselves or others regarding their LIFE choices. 

Lord, we pray for a large decanter of the oil of joy to be applied to the lives of those in LIFE struggles.  May they feel the beautiful effects of this in their harried lives.

Topics:  Pray for joy to come through the Lord’s anointing oils in the lives of those in struggle.
The President of the United States
