Read: Psalm 92:10-15 (KJV)
10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
15 To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

The word ‘Fresh’ does not only mean something newly created, it could also mean ‘new impact’. For example, when somebody goes for a refresher course, it is the same person and the same course, but now he is doing it so he can make new impact.
Open Heaven for Today 2 March 2020 – Fresh Oil
‘Dew’ is an embodiment of freshness. It refreshes everything it touches and makes it blossom. In Hosea 14:5 God says:
“I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.”

From this passage, it is clear that the dew, which symbolises freshness, makes things to blossom anew. So, when we talk about fresh oil, we are talking about an anointing that makes dry things blossom. It is an anointing that makes the beautiful more so, the fruitful to abound even more and the great even greater. It is a dangerous thing when the anointing of a man begins to go stale. This is what happened to Saul and we see the link between Saul’s stale anointing and the absence of dew, from David’s statement in 2nd Samuel 1:21 “Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither let there be rain, upon you… for there the shield of the mighty is vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, as though he had not been anointed with oil.”
Open Heaven for Today 2 March 2020 Monday: Prayer Points
When a man has been doing many exploits, and all of a sudden, his frequency begins to reduce, he needs fresh oil. When someone is well on his way to fulfilling his destiny and somehow, he begins to slow down, he needs fresh oil. Lack of fresh oil is what turns champions into ex-champions. I know that any boxer who does not keep refreshing his skills, no matter how good he is will soon be beaten in the ring. As long as the oil remains fresh on your head, great miracles and exploits will not cease in your life. Every time the oil is refreshed, you move from one level for long and you want to go higher, seek fresh oil. Ask the Lord to anoint you afresh.
Prayer Points: Today is my birthday. Please pray for me, that the Lord should pour fresh oil on my head; that all the great things I have achieved in the past will be small compared to the new exploits He will do in my life from now.
