  1. ““He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever”” (2 Samuel 22:51, NIV).

    The greatest demonstration of the power of God was raising Jesus Christ from the dead, as a third of the host of heaven (Satan and his demons) were opposed to it. This victory over Satan, sin, death and hell belongs to anyone who believes in Christ and is saved. 1 John 5:4 says, “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” 

    We access this victory by faith. This mean we must believe it and confess that we have it, in order for it to work for us. Mark 11:22-24, ““Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

    “When Jesus heard it, He marvelled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” (Matthew 8:10, NKJV).

    Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Jesus described two gentiles (non-Jews) as having great faith. The centurion in Matthew 8:5-10 took Him at His word. He said Jesus should not bother to come to his house, but just speak the word and his servant will be healed. He was healed in the same hour that Jesus spoke. The Syrophoenician woman begged him for deliverance for her demon possessed daughter who was at home in Mt 15:21-28. Despite Jesus calling her a dog which she could have taken as an insult, she persisted, and the girl was healed in the same hour that Jesus spoke.

    “Great peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble” (Psalms 119:165, NKJV).

    Peace is shalom, which means nothing missing, nothing broken. Many people missing something are looking for jobs, a spouse, children, money etc. Others broken, are dejected, depressed, frustrated, sick, dying or have given up. The requirement for Great Peace is loving God’s law or word. You need to hear, read, study, meditate, and apply it. After I got born again, I read the whole Bible through in about 8months, and besides studying it, have been reading it through yearly ever since. You will need a Bible Reading plan to do this.

    “And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all” (Acts 4:33, NKJV).

    Grace is unmerited favour. Our text says great grace was upon the apostles, which implies a multiplied and extra-ordinary dimension of favour. This enabled them to witness for the Lord in great power. This month, I believe for great grace and favour upon us to witness for the Lord with miracles, signs and wonders following.

    John 1:16 AMP says, “For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift].” I believe for all our spiritual, physical, emotional, material and financial needs to be met super-abundantly.
