Everlasting King of glory, Immortal, Invisible God. Ancient of Ages, All Powerful, All Knowing God, Eternal Rock of Ages, Beginning and End. Blessed be Thou Holy Name.

We are grateful for the month of February, for all that You give us. We say Thank You for the “New Heart and New Spirit” in our month of Great Encounter” we received by Your grace afresh. Help us not live as children of darkness, help us to throw away our sinful nature and former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception rather let our thoughts and attitudes be renew by Your Spirit. Help us Lord, to put on Your new Nature (Eph 4:18-24).

 O Lord! A New month is here not without Your knowledge and plans for Your children. Beloved, we are glad to welcome you to this wonderful month, the first of its kind in year 2015, the third month of the year, the month of March in year 2015. Welcome to our month of “In The Power of His Might” –Zec 4:6.

Is someone praising the Lord already? Are excited? Are you happy in the Lord? As we have been admonished above, let us live as children of light, on that foundation the Lord is going to build the theme of this month.

Beloved, “not by might nor by power but by my Spirit says the Lord” (Zec 4:6). What can you do of your own except the Lord helps you? Without the Spirit of God in our lives we are dead even if we are living, we are just a moving corpse.

The Lord did not stop at that in the preceding verses 7-9 the Lord asked Who art thou, o great mountain? Before Zerubbabel (put your name here) thou shalt become plain:… the hands of Zerubbabel (put your name) has laid the foundation of this house (name whatever you are believing God for); his (your) hands shall also finish it.

I don’t know what you are believing God for this month/year, and the records (bank account, medical report, lawsuit, etc.) before you are crying foul but I want to encourage you this day. Do not be dismay, the Lord Himself will do it and you will watch and see the glory of the Lord all around you as He honors you. Not forgetting the theme of the year “Supernatural Victories” this month will not be an exception. He will surely do it again, please make sure that you position yourself to receive of Him.

What is before you my dearest, is war, is financial breakthroughs, are you weigh down by ill health? Is your spouse or children an issue of concern, is your business or career causes you a sleepless night? Do not worry, the only thing you MUST do is lay it before Him; then listen to what He will instruct you to do, this way at the end of the month you will stand to testify of the truth “in the Power of His Might” thou overcometh. Praise the Name of the Lord!

Read the message below to see what the Lord will do concerning you:

“I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah 48:10


Comfort thyself, tried believer, with this thought: God saith, “I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Does not the word come like a soft shower, assuaging the fury of the flame? Yea, is it not an asbestos armour, against which the heat hath no power?

Let affliction come—God has chosen me. Poverty, thou mayst stride in at my door, but God is in the house already, and He has chosen me. Sickness, thou mayst intrude, but I have a balsam ready—God has chosen me. Whatever befalls me in this vale of tears, I know that He has “chosen” me. If, believer, thou requirest still greater comfort, remember that you have the Son of Man with you in the furnace.

In that silent chamber of yours, there sitteth by your side One whom thou hast not seen, but whom thou lovest; and ofttimes when thou knowest it not, He makes all thy bed in thy affliction, and smooths thy pillow for thee. Thou art in poverty; but in that lovely house of thine the Lord of life and glory is a frequent visitor. He loves to come into these desolate places, that He may visit thee. Thy friend sticks closely to thee. Thou canst not see Him, but thou mayst feel the pressure of His hands.

Dost thou not hear His voice? Even in the valley of the shadow of death He says, “Fear not, I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God.” Remember that noble speech of Caesar: “Fear not, thou carriest Caesar and all his fortune.” Fear not, Christian; Jesus is with thee. In all thy fiery trials, His presence is both thy comfort and safety. He will never leave one whom He has chosen for His own.

“Fear not, for I am with thee,” is His sure word of promise to His chosen ones in the “furnace of affliction.” Wilt thou not, then, take fast hold of Christ, and say—

“Through floods and flames, if Jesus lead,

I’ll follow where He goes.”

Still remembering the theme of the month, “… by my Spirit”. The spirit of the Lord will do Wonders in your Life. In like fashion He descended on Jesus same will He do for you. Come and drink more from the Fountain of life – Jesus:

“He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove.” Matthew 3:16


As the Spirit of God descended upon the Lord Jesus, the head, so He also, in measure, descends upon the members of the mystical body. His descent is to us after the same fashion as that in which it fell upon our Lord. There is often a singular rapidity about it; or ever we are aware, we are impelled onward and heavenward beyond all expectation. Yet is there none of the hurry of earthly haste, for the wings of the dove are as soft as they are swift.

Quietness seems essential to many spiritual operations; the Lord is in the still small voice, and like the dew, His grace is distilled in silence. The dove has ever been the chosen type of purity, and the Holy Spirit is holiness itself. Where He cometh, everything that is pure and lovely, and of good report, is made to abound, and sin and uncleanness depart.

Peace reigns also where the Holy Dove comes with power; He bears the olive branch which shows that the waters of divine wrath are assuaged. Gentleness is a sure result of the Sacred Dove’s transforming power: hearts touched by His benign influence are meek and lowly henceforth and for ever.

 Harmlessness follows, as a matter of course; eagles and ravens may hunt their prey—the turtledove can endure wrong, but cannot inflict it. We must be harmless as doves. The dove is an apt picture of love, the voice of the turtle is full of affection; and so, the soul visited by the blessed Spirit, abounds in love to God, in love to the brethren, and in love to sinners; and above all, in love to Jesus.

The brooding of the Spirit of God upon the face of the deep, first produced order and life, and in our hearts, He causes and fosters new life and light. Blessed Spirit, as Thou didst rest upon our dear Redeemer, even so rest upon us from this time forward and for ever.

Beloved, in the Power of His Might will He deliver you through every day of this month and crown you with victories you never imagined in the Name of Jesus.

Go in this might, believe the Lord and it will be well with you. With your own eyes will you see the Goodness and Favour of the Lord before you. Amen!

Once again, you are “Welcome to our month of “In the Power of His Might”.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
