Are you in need of a miracle? There’s no better time than Christmas to receive your miraculous gift from God. The events that surround the birth of our Savior are so miraculous in every way imaginable–and then some. No matter the need you are facing you can find hope for your miracle in the historical events of Jesus’ birth.
Let’s look at some of these events and see how they can impact our lives today.
Are you struggling with an impossible situation? Many people are today. We read about two very important characters in the Christmas story who were a childless couple, Elizabeth and her husband and priest, Zachariah. And despite Elizabeth’s barrenness and the fact that they were both advanced in age, they conceived a promised child–John. Who we come to know as John the Baptist. Because as it says in Luke 1:37, “For nothing will be impossible with God”. See Luke 1:13-57. Regardless of the impossible situation you are facing, whether it be infertility or another situation; always remember with God all things, not some things, but all things are possible “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes,” Mark 9:23.
Are you in need of divine favor? Mary received favor, supernatural favor from God in that she was chosen, the chosen vessel to birth the Christ child into this world. Luke 1:28 her favor is announced, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” Did you realize that you too have God’s favor resting upon you. It says in Psalm 5:12 concerning God’s favor, “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.“
Could you use some real reassurance concerning your calling? Mary continues to receive this reassurance about all that she has heard the Lord say to her, let’s see the first confirmation recorded after this angelic visitation from Gabriel. In Luke 1:41-45 it says, “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! “And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? “For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. “And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.” Romans 8:31 gives a great message of reassurance for today, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?“
Are you in need of a message directly from Heaven? People all around the world are receiving angelic visitations with messages from heaven just like the people we read about in the Christmas story. The shepherds were visited by one angel with an evangelistic message, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” And then appeared host of angels praising God and saying “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with who He is pleased.” And Hebrews 1:14 teaches us concerning angels, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?“
Perhaps you need supernatural direction, the wise men were given the Star of Bethlehem to lead them on a spiritual journey that led them to Jesus. Matthew 2:1-2, “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Do you know that you have been given a spiritual compass that is full of supernatural wisdom to give you direction for your daily living? It’s called the Word of God. Psalm 119:105 tells us about the teachings of the Bible, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Hebrews 4:12 tells us, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says concerning the Word of God, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
If you will learn to listen and heed the voice of God, He will protect your from the evil plans of the enemy today. We read in Matthew 2:13 how an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.” And for us today in 2 Thessalonians 3:3 is a promise of protection, “But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”
We can even find the Father’s supernatural provision for our families in the Christmas story in the example of the gifts of Magi as they present their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. See Matthew 2: 11. God knows what we have need of and His word tells us in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.“
Whatever the need or concern in your life is there is a miracle this Christmas for you from Jesus. Reach out to Him, believe and then receive from Him.
