Psalm 133 talks about the anointing oil running down from the head of the high priest to the skirts of his garments. The anointing oil was poured upon Christ (the anointed One) who is our heavenly High Priest. But it is not to stay on Him only. He wants it to run down His body, His body that is upon earth. He wants it to flow down on you, even to the bottom of your skirts.
The main description of the anointing is that it is HOLY and never to touch the flesh. It was also made of SWEET spices (Exodus 30:22-33). It was an oil of JOY (Hebrews 1:9). It was a HEALING and RESTORING anointing (Acts 10:38). It was a DELIVERING anointing (Isaiah 61:1). It was the anointing of UNITY and HARMONY (Psalm 133:1-3).
It's this anointing God wants to flow down from you, right to where you meet life--in your kitchen, dealing with your little ones, and all the mothering challenges you face today. I remember how my little ones used to love to hang on to my skirts. Where I walked, they walked. They played in my skirts. They hid in my skirts, especially when a stranger came.
The skirts speak of getting down to the nitty-gritty. To the lowest. To where your little ones are. The menial day to day tasks of life. Dear mother, you can’t accomplish these in your own strength. Instead, let God's anointing flow down to where you are at this moment! Whatever is happening now! Ask God to pour down His anointing to the bottom of your skirts. There is where He wants to come--to the very reality of your life (Psalm 113:4-8).
God bless you in your home today,
