Series: Greatness



The equation of greatness starts and ends with God. 

1 Chronicles 29

 12 Riches and glory are from you, and you have dominion over all. In your hand are power and might; it is yours to give greatness and strength to all.


1Chronicles 29:12

The power of God makes great. In one night, God changed Solomon’s life. The power to make great came into David’s life, and it turned his life around. For anything to happen in this realm, there’s power needed. To take us from where we are to where we ought to be. It requires power. 

The power to make rich belongs to the Lord. However, if we are not connected to that power, we will enter a new year without experiencing his greatness.


Deuteronomy 8:18

 18 Remember then the LORD, your God, for he is the one who gives you the power to get wealth, by fulfilling, as he has now done, the covenant he swore to your ancestors.

Deuteronomy 8 


2 Samuel 23:1-5

 1 These are the last words of David: The oracle of David, son of Jesse; the oracle of the man God raised up, 

Anointed of the God of Jacob, favorite of the Mighty One of Israel. 2 The spirit of the LORD spoke through me; 

his word was on my tongue.  3The God of Israel spoke; of me the Rock of Israel said, “One who rules over humankind with justice, who rules in the fear of God, 4Is like the light at sunrise on a cloudless morning, making the land’s vegetation glisten after rain.”5Is not my house firm before God? He has made an eternal covenant with me, set forth in detail and secured. Will he not bring to fruition all my salvation and my every desire?

2 Samuel 23


God has called us to many things, but if we do not do the work, we cannot enter into it.

To tap into the power that makes great, we need to pray. Greatness requires humility; we have to humble ourselves. Promotion does not come from the east or from the west; it comes from the Lord.

Philippians 2

 5 Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, 6 Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. 7 Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, 8 he humbled himself, 9 Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,

Philippians 2:5-9. 



  • We plug into the power to be great—the power that makes great.
