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.
