WHY SHALL THESE THINGS BE SO

TEXT: Luke 1:34-35

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Do you have a God inspired vision, mission, idea, ministry, etc? You’d sure have noticed that most times, they seem like mission impossible? Now, do you now exactly why God gave you a mission impossible in the first place? Why would he call you into something that only He could have fulfilled? You think he’s not aware of your limited capabilities and resources? Of course he does! God gives us the answer in the words of Angel Gabriel. The Angel said “…Therefore, that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God”.

The reason why God gave you that impossible assignment is firstly that you may not attempt to fulfil it by your own strength; rather you’d depend solely on Him. He wants to be responsible for your results. It is His business He only wants to do it through you. 

“… *
God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are, That no flesh should glory in his presence.”

God wants to ensure that when you finally come out with the result, it will bear the signature of God. It will be clear that the Lord alone could have done this. You see, God wants to bring you into he glory of His son, so He wants to use you to silence the enemy and the avenger (Psalm 8:2). Now these forces that God is using you to challenge and subdue are naturally greater than man. They had man in dominion. If you challenge them by your strength, you’re in for a disaster. Thus he first of all cripples your understanding by the size of your assignment so you can learn to trust in Him with all your heart for that’s the only way His absolute strength can flow through you. 

That is one of the reasons why God has put His eternal life (the heavenly treasure) through His Spirit into you. The Holy Spirit is the manifester of the presence glory and power of God. We have this heavenly treasure in our earthly vessel that the excellency of the power might be of God (2Cor 4:7) Let the consciousness of you inability to fulfil God’s Mandate by yourself drive you into total dependence on God. That is when you’d start experiencing the unlimited power and resources of God in your life.

 LET US PRAY

Father I bless you for making me an instrument for the manifestation of your will and the glorification of your name

Father I yield myself to your Holy Spirit and I ask that you have your way fully in me

Father let every resistance to your will in your church crumble under your mighty power

In this nation Lord, arise and by the mouths of your children silence the enemies for ever.
