Even Elizabeth … surrounding yourself with inspiration
Luke 1: 36 “Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.”
Having been told to expect a miracle, Mary is given news of another miracle.
What are you believing for today?
Make sure you are surrounding yourself with great faith-filled stories of God doing the impossible. Make sure you are looking at the right signs. There are signs that lead to unbelief like Peter looking at the wind and waves and begins to sink and there are signs that encourage your miracle within you.
Abraham was told to count the stars that God had created. He looked at the created world and the vastness of God’s power and he understood and believed his call. (Genesis 15:5)
Moses saw a natural phenomenon, the burning bush that didn’t burn to the ground and it would lead him to encounter our God who is a consuming fire. (Exodus 3:1-4)
Joshua remembered how God used Moses for the parting of the Red Sea as he gave instructions to move towards the Jordan River for a similar miracle. (Joshua 3:7)
David remembered his own past God-given victories over the lion and the bear and it fuelled his belief he could take down Goliath. (1 Samuel 17:37)
Paul encouraged Archippus (probably a church leader) to not give up no matter what he was going through by remembering his own chains and difficulty too. (Colossians 4:17)
“Mary, this might seem impossible for you but let me tell you another impossible story that is 6 months ahead of yours!”
Today, what is the miracle?
There isn’t a lot you can do but what you can do is to surround yourself with stories of what God has already done.
Look at the power of His creative ability, natural phenomena, miracles of old and your own God-provision stories. The God who did this can do it again and again and again!
