Scripture: Acts 13:32-24
This passage says, “And we declare to you glad tidings—that promise which was made to the fathers. God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the sure mercies of David.’” The very first thing that Jesus did upon His resurrection was to endow each one who believe in Him with the same covenant that King David had. That covenant created mighty men. It made David mighty, and it made his men mighty. As we pursue God and set our faith on all God’s fullness, it will empower us to be made mighty, mighty in word and deed. That is the purpose of the Davidic Covenant, and that is why Jesus is also called the Son of David. He was and is mighty in word and deed. He is in us and as we walk in the fullness of Christ we cannot help but move toward walking mighty in word and deed. The Living Omnipotent God dwells in us. We have bowed our knee to God and His eternal purpose which is to bring the authority and glory of Christ on the scene and overturn the works of the devil. We are anointed for that and it is the Holy Spirit Who will lead us into that. It is not all easy. Most of it is a challenge. There is blatant, radical resistance. There are those who hate God. There are God-haters and God-mockers, who do not hesitate to undermine and obstruct. But we overcome with the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We are anointed to overturn the works of the devil. As we purpose to walk in the fullness of Christ nobody can take us out before we have finished our race! It’s in the Book. It is Who Christ is in us! What a future we have in God. What a future our kids have available in God! It is a future of glorious fruit including a mighty harvest! Our job is to find out who we are and believe it.
