The presence of the Holy Spirit could be imparted to you, maybe by the laying on of hands. But until and unless you make contact with the person of the Holy Spirit inside you and walk according to His power at work inyou, that impartation won’t last for long; it’s the reason many are always looking for another anointing.
Don’t ignore that which God has put in you. Does He give you more power? No! He’salready given you all the power you could ever need—Himself! He’s power personified.
“For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.” (John 3:34)
It’s not unusual to find Christians who think that what they need is more power or more anointing. They’ve read in the Bible of how people brought their sick so that the shadow of Peter could come upon them and be healed. They’ve also read of Paul, from whom handkerchiefs and aprons were taken and laid on the sick, and they were healed. So they pray, “Lord, I need a double portion of the anointing, to minister like Peter and Paul.” What Paul did was to impart the anointing into those clothing materials. However, that anointing didn’t come from heaven; it was in Paul, because he had the Holy Spirit.
