What if God asked you this question: “Can I count on you?”
The day I had to minister to a young man battling pornography, I didn’t feel qualified, and my mission seemed impossible. But I wanted God to be able to count on me to help him. Jesus said to me, “Let My Spirit come upon you and give you the answers for this young man.”
Sometimes, what God asks of us seems to be “Mission Impossible.” That’s what happened with Mary, Jesus’s mother.
When the angel announced Jesus’s future birth to her, here’s how she answered: “Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” 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.”” (read the Bible, Luke 1:34-35, NLT)
Mary’s life seemed all planned out with her engagement to Joseph, but God had provided another opportunity by saying to her, “Can I count on you and trust you? You will have a son, not when the season seems right to you, but when I choose it. It will happen at the least reasonable time. If you agree and have faith, you will see My power.”
Your “impossibility” is your mission to manifest God’s power through your life. Your faith, *|FNAME|*, is the gift God gives you, so accept God’s mission for you. Refuse to run away from your problem. Let the Spirit of God fill you and make Jesus visible. Faith is choosing to trust in God. And God likes to rely on the person who relies on Him.
Begin to rejoice and let your faith arise as you meditate on the powerful lyrics of this new song, “Won’t Stop Now” by Elevation Worship.
“I know breakthrough is coming
By faith I see a miracle
My God made me a promise
And it won’t stop now…”
If you’re in a situation that seems impossible:
- Your spouse doesn’t believe in God.
- A loved one has fallen into a life of addiction.
- Your coworkers or friends hate you…
Then I have some good news for you…you’re on a mission!
If Mary was able to carry the Son of God in difficult conditions, it was because she chose to trust God. It’s by faith that you’ll succeed in your mission!
