Blessed God, we are grateful unto You for this great morning, another day to celebrate You by showing and sharing love among your people. We thank You for the wonderful memorial that You left for us to always remember and celebrate Your goodness to all mankind. Let all glory, all Honour be unto Thee. Amen!
Dearly beloved, what a glorious day before us, to shed the love of Christ abroad in the lives of those around us. Sure you have something to share, never mind how small it might seem to you. If God laid it in your heart; it will surly meet a need. Don’t neglect that prompting of the Holy Spirit. Don’t forget, nothing is too small to share or give.
Has it ever occur to you to ponder on the Immaculate Conception? This very act of God had help me in diverse ways especially when I cannot comprehend it or have a cue of how to go about the challenges before me, remembering how only a simple submission by Mary brought even the “wise” to confusion, helps me to say “God! You know what to do and I know not, help me; open my eyes to see and my ears to hear You clearly. In no time, the solution will just come, just like that.
Beloved, as it in our text today, let us go through it again and that mind bulging problems will find solution before long, the remaining of your year 2013 dividend will find its way to you before the end of this year in Jesus Name, For with God nothing will be impossible. Just click here to read all.
“For nothing will be impossible with God.”—Luke 1:37
The angel Gabriel told Mary that God was planning to do something humanly impossible. All human logic would agree that a virgin could not give birth to a child. It was impossible. Yet this is exactly what was to happen. When God speaks of doing the impossible, it is no longer absurd. When was the last time God did the impossible in your life? When was the last time God spoke to you about what He wanted to do and you were scared to death by its magnitude?
God still does the impossible! Too often we acknowledge our belief that God can do whatever He wants, then we add a safety clause: “But I just don’t think God will do that with me!” We become practical atheists, believing that God can perform miracles but never expecting a miracle in our own lives.
God wanted to bring salvation to all of humanity. It is critical that Mary not only believed God could perform a miracle but also adjusted her life to the awesome work He planned to do through her. The difference between a Christian and a moral person is the divine. The difference between a church and a social club is the miraculous. Some can duplicate the morality of a Christian, but no one can reproduce the miraculous that should be a part of the Christian experience.
Do you believe that nothing is impossible for God? If you believe, give a clap offering to the Lord; make some joyful sounds unto Him, and you will be glad you did.
Back to Bethlehem, let’s go and find out more about the baby in the manger. Like our message of yesterday. While so many are still celebrating the First Advent, the Second Advent will meet them apologetically, I pray it will happen to any of us in Jesus Name. He came; He is coming:
“This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11
Many are celebrating our Lord’s first coming this day; let us turn our thoughts to the promise of His second coming. This is as sure as the first advent, and derives a great measure of its certainty from it. He who came as a lowly man to serve will assuredly come to take the reward of His service. He who came to suffer will not be slow in coming to reign.
This is our glorious hope, for we shall share His joy. Today we are in our concealment and humiliation, even as He was while here below; but when He cometh it will be our manifestation, even as it will be His revelation. Dead saints shall live at His appearing. The slandered and despised shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Then shall the saints appear as kings and priests, and the days of their mourning shall be ended. The long rest and inconceivable splendor of the millennial reign will be an abundant recompense for the ages of witnessing and warring.
Will you be ready when the Lord shall come? This should be answer individually, so take your time and give an honest assessment and give your answer. Don’t be carried away child of God, His return is nearly now than when it was proclaim.
Oh, that the Lord would come! He is coming! He is on the road and traveling quickly. The sound of His approach should be as music to our hearts! Ring out, ye bells of hope!
Let us pray:
May God grant you, the light in Christmas which is Faith. The warmth of Christmas which is Love. The radiance of Christmas which is Purity. The righteousness of Christmas which is Justice. The belief in Christmas which is Truth. The all of Christmas which is Christ.
Once again Merry Christmas and a Prosperous Year 2014 from us @ Overcomers-faith Ministry Int’l ((a.k.a mattersoftheheart- your daily devotional)
