Matthew 1:23 (NKJV) “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
I have faith that starting from the Christmas season 2019, we will continue to experience the reality of God’s inclusion that is increasingly real in our daily lives.
There are many of us who have been living under the pressure of problems because we have been successfully distracted by the Evil’s deception so we continue to focus on outward things; even though apart from what we see as ‘bad things’ that are seen as outward facts in our lives, it is actually ‘God’s plan’ that is working to condition us to be involved in realizing God’s eternal plan – just like Joseph!
Joseph was feeling a great anxiety when he found that data and fact that Mary was pregnant while they had not married yet. Joseph didn’t know that Mary’s pregnancy shaded by the Holy Spirit! But because of Joseph’s sincerity and kindness, God sent His angel to come and give direction to him through a dream (Matthew 1: 18-20).
This is the time for every believer who is facing a problem in his life, experiencing the work of the angels who give direction and position their existence to experience a great breakthrough in his life.
I believe, Mary prayed earnestly and surrendered her life that was ‘at stake’ into the Hand of God! For a woman, if she is found pregnant before marriage, the prospective husband has the right to gather the whole villagers to ‘punish’ the prospective bride, throwing herself with stones to death!
The power of prayer will truly work again to move the angels to perform breakthroughs and miracles for every believer who needs them – no matter the needs, starting from the simplest, to the matters between life and death!
Even a couple of time ago God showed me how the ‘portal of breakthrough’ He had opened for each of us as His chosen people. All we have to walk in obedience to every direction or guidance of the Spirit that we receive. No matter what level or condition of life we are facing, God is stretching His hand of love to lift us up to the level of ‘divine equality’.
My prayer is let the spirit of breakthrough truly work powerfully in our lives and bring us to experience many divine breakthroughs that position ourselves to be at the spiritual point where God is!
Enjoy the reality of Emmanuel – the reality of the existence of God that is with His people and experience the working of a victorious spirit in your everyday life! #ILoveGod
