Unified Vehicle for the Will of God

Stars and planets were said to have lined up for this one-time event. The star that miraclebethlehemstarpointed the way to the newborn King was the result of predetermined movements of the heavenly bodies. Yahweh’s creation is a unified vehicle for His will. Importance of the birth of Jesus caused the members of the universe to come into a particular alignment both for cooperation and to highlight the significance of the coming Savior (Lk1:31-32).

Hope When all is Contrary

Jesus, son of Abraham and son of David, born when the seed of Abraham was a ManPrayLookUpdespised people and tributary to the Roman yoke and when the house of David was buried in obscurity. The performance and provision of God comes when circumstances would place upon it the heaviest it has to offer. Ease and convenience are not the components of fulfillment. The Christmas story is a story of hope in the face of all that is contrary. “Against all odds, when it looked hopeless, Abraham believed the promise and expected God to fulfill it. He took God at his word…” (Rom.4:18a, TPT)


Supernatural Birth

The birth of Jesus, Savior of the world, was announced in terms supernatural. The christmas-starpronouncement & the experiences of those involved in the broadcast cannot be explained in mere natural terms. Not only did angels appear to Jewish shepherds but a heavenly phenomenon caught the attention of learned Gentile observers and drew them to the City of David to worship One whom they would hail as King of the Jews. (Acts 4:12, Amp) ”And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved.”



I was praying over a situation for which I have no answers and can do nothing about. As soon as I prayed I heard, “Now, let go of all of your ideas of how this thing needs to be worked out and let Me have it.” As we head into Christmas and a new year may we lay down every weight, worry, and preconceived idea of what the will of God should look like in our current situations, and leave it in the capable hands of the One Whose birth we are celebrating! Have a very Merry Christmas and may you find peace unspeakable in the decision to trust the One who already set us free. — Melissa Gabler

Fitting in the Plans of God

Children With Jesus.jpgGrowing up on Abraham Avenue, Zacharias, Elizabeth, Joseph and Mary had no idea how they would fit in the plans of God & the history of man. Amid all their lessons in history & prophecy from the Torah, they had never pictured themselves as key players in the greatest story ever told. However, their lives were divinely positioned for the plans of God. God intends your life to be spent to His glory. (Jer29:11) — Kathy G


Happens the Same Way Today

fireGroaning for the sons of God to be revealed is met with the power of Holy Spirit in bringing the realm of heaven into history. Holy Spirit brings what exists in the realm of heaven into history… just like Jesus was. How was that done? Mary asked, “How shall this be?” The answer: “The Holy Ghost shall come upon you and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you.” (Lk.1:35) It happens the same way today.
