Christmas is the season of blessings. In Luke 1:31, God said: “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.” Receiving and hearing the word of God is the beginning of all blessings. An angel brought the word of promise to Mary (Luke 1:28). She believed and there was a performance of those things which where told her from the Lord (Luke 1:45). Miraculously the virgin gave birth and in that birth the world has never been so blessed!
Like Mary, we too can conceive miraculous manifestations because we too have a word of promise.
Heb 6:13-14 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, 14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
Now it’s not the word alone, because once the Word is spoken and the Spirit is orchestrating.
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:
God created everything with the Word and the Spirit (Gen 1:2-3) and if we intend to change our darkness into light, we must do the same. It took the Word and the Holy Spirit to manifest the miracle of our Savior’s birth so remember the last words of Jesus on this earth for the birth of your miracle:
Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence… 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: …
Receive both the Word and the Spirit for these are truly the greatest gifts. Let’s be like Mary. She was troubled initially, but the angel told her to fear not (Luke 1:29-30). Let’s say it boldly while receiving both the Word of His promise and the promise of His Spirit:
Luke 1:38 …be it unto me according to thy word…
