2017-12-03

“God, why are you writing the story of my life like this?”

· Scandalous pregnancy

· Husband leaving his engagement

· Born in a manger

#1 – Our Life will have its own Twists and Turns.

(Luke 1:26-29 NIV) In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.”

(Luke 1:30-34 NIV) But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

(Luke 1:35-37 NLT) The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. For the word of God will never fail.”

#2 – Nothing is impossible with God.

#3 – Speak a prayer of faith over your situation.

(verse 38) Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.

Say this - “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be done to me according to your word.”

WIN - When you don’t understand what God is doing, remember what God has spoken.
