What Mary was told by the angel was beyond men.

Luke 1:31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

Luke 1:34-35 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.

“The Holy Spirit will come upon you….” is the answer to those who do not know a man.

If we can grow to that place where we know that if the Holy Spirit doesn’t help us, we are nothing, then our lives will become wonders.

Mark.6.2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!

People were used to the ordinary output but when they saw Jesus, it was different because He had yielded Himself to the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:4

If Jesus told the disciples to wait for the promise of the Father (the Holy Spirit) before they could do anything, then what makes you think that you can succeed without Him (the Holy Spirit)?

Every prophecy and dream should take you back to the Holy Spirit in order to find manifestation. In the book of Exodus, Moses was able to deliver an entire nation of Israel because the Holy Spirit took over.

John 5.19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. (NKJV)

If Jesus could do nothing of Himself, what makes you think you can? Jesus loves us so much that He sent His Spirit to help us.

The Holy Spirit wants the best for you and every time you are in God’s plan, He will fight for you.

2Kings 6.25-27 [25] And there was a great famine in Samaria; and indeed they besieged it until a donkey’s head was sold for eighty shekels of silver, and one-fourth of a kab of dove droppings for five shekels of silver.[26] Then, as the king of Israel was passing by on the wall, a woman cried out to him, saying, “Help, my lord, O king!” [27] And he said, “If the LORD DOES NOT HELP YOU, where can I find help for you? From the threshing floor or from the winepress?”

A day comes when kings do not have an answer but the Holy Spirit is always there to help. All that He looks for is surrender such that He can help.

The Holy Spirit is the Helper. How much have you permitted Him to help you?

Daniel 6.14 And the king, when he heard these words, was greatly displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him; and he labored till the going down of the sun to deliver him. (NKJV)

The King tried his level best to deliver Daniel but failed. Even kings fail; that is why you should not put your trust in them.

All you need to do is to throw yourself in the arms of God and He will deliver you and your testimony will manifest.

Exodus 25.40 And see to it that you make them according to the pattern which was shown you on the mountain.

We must create an environment that makes the Holy Spirit comfortable and welcomed and traps God. If we honour Him, we will get rid of anything that is not conducive to His presence.
