Luke 1:26-38 … [38] “I am the Lord’s servant,” said Mary; “may it happen to me as you have said.” And the angel left her.

We are in our Kairos moments and as many as release their faith, will receive frequent visitations of angels that will change their destinies forever. 

Mary was living an ordinary life, going about her business until she received her visitation. It is good to plan but when divine interruption comes in, embrace it for your good.

Jesus had many step brothers but it was only His birth (by the Holy Spirit) that attracted the attention of heaven and announced Him all over the world.

There is something that God put in His book concerning your life. That is why Jesus said;

‘Behold, I have come—] [In the volume of the book it is written of Me—] [To do Your will, O God.'”] Hebrews 10:7

God is not only obligated to do things you know about but He can also do things you’re not aware of. There are things written about you that you don’t have any idea about.  (Deuteronomy 29:29)

I pray that the hidden things concerning your life that are meant to happen but you are unaware of, will be birthed in your life.

The condition is that you must be willing to allow the Holy Spirit to take over. Are you willing to postpone your program and allow God to use you to bring forth His Agenda? Can Jesus borrow your womb (the womb of business, family, etc.) to bring forth His agenda?

To me, Christmas is all about our willful surrender, submission, and saying yes to the will of the Master regardless of the circumstances we are in and allow His agenda to find manifestation. It was not a simple choice that Mary made but she willingly chose to obey God.

Sometimes, you will have to obey God with tears in your eyes and heaviness in your heart. That is why you need to ask the Lord to give you the grace of obedience to His Word and instructions. Romans 1:5

Genesis 22:2-12 [2] Then He said, “Take now your son, YOUR ONLY SON ISAAC, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” ….

[11] But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he said, “Here I am.” [12] And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

God asked Abraham for his only son whom he had waited for twenty-five years; that means that God did not consider Ismail as a son. Many of us are offering ‘Ismail’ to God and yet He is interested in “Isaac” (the one who touches your heart).                   

Most of us practice our faith when there is convenience but when there is pain, suffering, and lack, we don’t obey God. Obeying God will most times make you look like a loser but when all is done, you will have a good testimony.

The only way God can test whether you fear Him or not is in the area of your obedience; what has God been telling you to run away from and you are still holding onto it? Can God use you to bring forth His agenda to this generation?                                                                 

I pray that the Lord will furnish your heart and cause you to obey His Word and instructions against all odds that you may be part of what He wants to do in this generation.
