The children of God were getting weary and disappointed at the slow pace at which the Lord seemed to be working in their lives. The Isrealites that left Egypt were now slaves under the Roman Empire they wanted God to deliver them from slavery. This was Isaiah response to them. The Prophet told them that a virgin shall give birth to a child and they shall call him Emmanuel – which means “God with us”. This means that for these men and women to find hope in a hopeless situation, God will cause a virgin to be pregnant. God will have to change the natural biological laws that He created in order for His Son, Jesus, to enter the scene and deliver His people from bondage.
Isaiah 7:13-14 “And he said, Hear you now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
This is very powerful. The Prophet was teaching them that their worries came through their understanding of God’s process. In those days women, men, old Prophets and Prophetesses went out in search for the pregnant virgin. It was a crazy scene.
We often wish that God follows a process in order to bless us, but He can bring out something out of nothing. The Lord made a virgin to give birth to a child. He is able to make your barns overflow out of nothing. We are usually prepared to receive at the end of the process but we do not have enough faith to receive at God’s time. Human knowledge will limit the power of God in your life. The world is caught up in time; as a child of God we live in eternity. Jesus came into this world as the word of God.
I am walking by faith this month. There is a new thing that is about to be birthed in my life. A new dream and a new purpose is about to be birthed in my life. I am pregnant with possibilities. I am persuaded that the vision of God in my life shall come to pass in Jesus’ name; Amen.
May you have a Merry Christmas 2017.
