LEAVE THE “HOW” TO HIM
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 1:26-35
How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” – Luke 1:34
One major question many Christians today ask is how the prophecy of God for their lives will come to pass. Others read the Scripture, believe and accept its power and prophecy but wonder ‘how’ the Scripture will be fulfilled in their lives.
This same question bothered Mary. Mary, who was a virgin betrothed to Joseph, had a prophecy from the angel Gabriel that she would conceive and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. Mary, just like you and I asked the angel HOW the prophecy could be since she had not known any man.
The good news is that when God speaks, He has what it takes to bring it to pass. Through His Omnipotence, the impossible became possible. When Mary knew and understood that God could do all things, she said: Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your Word.
Dear reader, when you have prayed in faith and have read and believed the Scripture, and have also done what is expected of you, wait upon Jesus and leave the HOW to Him, for with Him nothing is impossible. After all, in Mark 4:26-27, Jesus said that the kingdom of God is like a man who scatters his seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know HOW.
• Would I be happy when my child for many years does not grow?
• Why are most of my prayers not being answered?
Dear Lord, help me to grow in your Word so that I will know and pray according to your will for answered prayer, in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. (Mathew 22:29).
