Do you need a Christmas Miracle?

When the Christmas gift we are most longing for is a miracle, remember the gift of Christmas is a miracle.

A young virgin named Mary giving birth to the Son of God and Savior of all, Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit is a miracle.

Whatever we need birthed in our hearts and lives is possible with God when we believe the Word of the Lord and receive and follow His plan.

As we have received Jesus as Savior and Lord, we have already received the greatest gift and miracle of all – sins forgiven, a changed heart, and a glorious future of eternity in heaven!

Encouraging myself along with you to keep believing, keep hoping, keep expecting the God of the impossible to birth more miracles this Christmas and in the new year too.

Pray like Mary:

“…May everything You have said about me come true.” Amen.

Mary’s prayer was personal. First, Mary said, I am Your servant Lord. We are called to be personal servants and followers of the Lord first. Then, Mary said, “May everything You have said about me come true.” Mary was a believer and not a doubter in the word of the Lord. Mary desired to receive “everything” God had planned for her and every Word God was speaking over her life. As Christ followers, this is the pathway to receiving more miracles beyond the miracle of salvation. Mary’s agreeing and receiving birthed God’s glorious plan of salvation through the Messiah, Jesus, being made available for all people. Believing and agreeing with God and His Word for everything He has planned for us will bring God’s glory upon our lives too. Let it be unto us according to Your Word. Amen.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work with us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Ephesians 3:20

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!” Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!” Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.” Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.
