November – THE LORD REIGNS

Categories: Word of the Month

Calvary greetings in the name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who has made it possible for us to see the eleventh month of the year in a season of the Lord’s visitation. The Almighty God has declared to us that in this season, He will manifest himself as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  His awesome glory will be seen in our lives like never before and our joy shall be full.   

To the glory of God, we have been able to start this season with 14 days of prayer and fasting and we have been experiencing His power and grace daily this season.  The Holy Scriptures encourages us in Isaiah 40:31 that “… they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” It is my prayer that you will soar as the eagle and the biggest of testimonies this year will come to your home in Jesus name.  

The psalmist declares that “the Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof (Psalm 97:1).  The New Living Translation version puts it even more powerfully, “The Lord is King! Let the earth rejoice! Let the farthest coastlands be glad”.  The psalmist realizes that the Lord reigns in the affairs of man.  He is Supreme! That realization and understanding was the secret of the success of David who was considered as a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22).  

It is noteworthy that Christianity is a practical way of life, it is not theory.  Therefore, our lives must be filled with signs and wonders. The Lord reigns over all circumstances for He is sovereign over all creation, whether visible or invisible, animate or inanimate.  The Lord reigns over all the nations of the world, ruling over all humans and angels, both good and evil.  He reigns over sicknesses, diseases, shame, reproaches, lack, failures, disappointments, delays etc.   He said “all authority in heaven and in earth has been given to me” (Matthew 28:18) and if God reigns with you, nothing can be against you (Romans 8:31).  In Exodus 15, the Lord demonstrated His almightiness by rescuing His people with His mighty hands and compelling his enemies to surrender.  Also, God reigns even over our physical wellbeing for He can heal all diseases. He declared in Jeremiah 32:27 that “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?”  

Remember, this is our year of great expectation.  Put your hope in God. It is my prayer that you will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all other things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).  I decree over your life that you will end this year joyfully with great testimonies!  

Shalom,
