God has a plan for everyone, every event in mankind is strategically planned and ordained. Nothing happens out of place, no happenstance in the agenda of heaven. Read Luke chapter 1
The Sovereign God sent the same angel Gabriel that gave Zachariah the good news about John the baptist to deliver yet another good news to Mary, a teenager, about the Savior of the world Jesus Christ. What has a Prophet, a Pastor in our generation got to do with teenagers? What correlation? How does God choose who he will bless and use we might ask? What are his criteria?
My thought here, probably Elizabeth remained barren until Mary is matured enough to carry a baby, because based on the agenda of heaven God had ordained Mary, even before she was born to be the vessel through whom he will release his beloved son into this world as a being. Elizabeth is ordained to give birth to the Messiah’s forerunner.
Friends, I believe that as I write this and you are reading it, this very moment, things are taking shape in your life and mine that we know nothing about but had been ordained by heaven for our good. God has put strategies in motion to restore unto us those years, opportunities, relationships, health, finances,pregnancies etc that we have lost to the devourer.
The lost blessings are been restored! God planned it all along, hinted us here and there, though we did not acknowledge it, maybe not expecting it either, God is constantly working on your behalf and mine according to the agenda of heaven which is to see us to an expected end where we fulfil our God given destiny. This is amazing!
When you have found favour with God as angel Gabriel told Mary in Luke 1:30, all creation goes into motion to deliver that which the Lord has ordained for you, regardless of your doubt and fear.
The angel quenched the flame of doubt in Mary’s heart by telling her about Elizabeth, she who was said to be unable to conceive is pregnant and in her sixth month. In this present age, our angels are being like us that have been given specific instructions by God based on “The Word” for our good. The bible is your best friend and guide.
What has and is been said about you my friend? The facts of your life and situations? Doubt? None of these can reverse the plan and purpose of God that was set in motion before you were conceived in your mothers womb. You can opt out by outright disobedience, where ever you go, you cannot hide from God. He is everywhere! No word from our God will ever fail.
Why don’t you take a step of faith today? Ask the Lord Jesus to reveal himself to you, you need him, you need the Holy Spirit to guide you into the promises of God, the word of truth. Forsake sin and embrace righteousness of Christ Jesus.
Blessed is she/he who has believed that the Lord would fulfil his promises to her/him.
1 Samuel 30:18&19 David recovered everything the Amalekites had taken, including his two wives. 19 Nothing was missing: young or old, boy or girl, plunder or anything else they had taken. David brought everything back.
Friends, like David, be encouraged in the capability of God to restore unto you all that you have lost, has been stolen and cheated out off. You will not only recover all but much more than you lost. God is in the habit of doing far above all we can ask or thing according to his glorious riches by Christ Jesus.
This season, you will be be blessed beyond your expectation. Enlarge your tent, prepare room for increase, the heavens are open over you, reach out in faith and take hold of God’s promises for you and your generation unborn.
Joel 2: 25-27; 25“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm— my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
All the years wasted in ignorance of what Jesus had wrought for you, years wasted in life’s futility without divine aim. The Lord is willing, able and has promised to restore to you everything you have lost.
Will you acknowledge the Sovereignty of the Most High God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, your creator and lover of your soul?
Take time to seek his face, he is longing for you, Jesus does love you and want the best for you. Trust Christ.
