Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!! The new year represents new beginningss and an fresh start. Many of you have already set goals, created vision boards, you have heard messages about what the year 2012 will be for you. For instance, you heard this will be your best year, the year of opportunities, the year of miracles, the year of breakthrough and etc. You heard these messages and got excited for the moment. However, your current situations begin to have you question, will this actually be my best year, will I really have opportunities, will I really receive my miracle, I have been in this situation a long time, I believe for a breakthrough before and I did not receive it. You begin to have all these thoughts go through your mind, your emotions are like a rollercoaster and it seems so hard to believe that things will get better, change, and shift for you. You still have heaviness, you feel overwhelmed, depressed and anxious while at the same time you are hearing this will be your best year, year of opportunities, year of miracles, year of a breakthrough. You are face with a conflict. The conflict is between your situation as well as emotions and the messages of hope you are hearing and believing for. I can relate to all those thoughts and feelings I mention and you may be faced with. It is not something I just write about, but I have experienced it. However, what I want to do now is speak life and hope into you.
Luke 1:26-38 (NKJV) 26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”[a]
29 But when she saw him,[b] she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”
35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
I shared this story because Mary is like you and I she had a visitation, received a word from God through an angel and because of her current situation/condition she questioned how can this be? God then begins to tell you how you will be able to do what seems impossible. I said seem because God wants to remind you that there is nothing impossible with Him. In verse 37, it says For with God nothing will be impossible.” I want to encourage you with these words and I pray it rings soooooo much louder than your fears, doubts, current situation. With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!!With God Nothing Will Be Impossible!!!! I said it seven times becomes seven represents the number of completion. My prayer is that God will complete everything He started and spoke into your life. Lastly, in the story with Mary receiving a visitation and a word from God in Luke 1, she says in verse 38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
I want to encourage you to push this year like never before to let faith speak beyond your situation as Mary did. I am praying for you that you will allow your faith to say Lord Be it Unto Me According to Your Word. Watch God Move on Your Behalf, For There is Nothing Impossible With God. This Year Let Faith Speak and Watch how what seems impossible will turn Possible.
