Call the midwife

Isaiah 66:8 (KJV)

“Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

Are you groaning with the twangs of labour pains? Do you think you have gone through all you can bear?

If so, hold tight because you are about to birth a miracle! When you have come to a point of explosion, like an erupting volcano, it’s time!

The minute those intense pains hit, you will bring forth your children.

Exodus 1:19 says: “The Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women,” the midwives replied. “They are more vigorous and have their babies so quickly that we cannot get there in time.”

Maybe you’ve been waiting a long time for your prayer to be answered but it will come forth speedily, in an instant, like a thief in the night.

Somebody quickly call the midwife because this baby is on the way!

“A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.” John 16:21 (NIV)

Ponder it in your heart

Luke 2:17-19 (NIV)

‘When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart’

She already knew the promise was coming; ‘May everything you’ve said about me come true’ Luke 1:38. Her response is both humble and faith filled.

In quietness and confidence she allowed the promise of the greatest miracle of all time, show itself (Himself) off through her, a young girl!

Full of excitement and anticipation after what God had done for her, she kept quiet and simply meditated on it.

It was however the shepherds who announced and spread the word concerning the birth of Jesus Christ the Saviour.

What does God want to do through you? Stay humble and in faith. Follow Mary’s example and be the vessel to birth the miracle.

Keeping the joy

Christmas can be a challenging season for many, and most people I talk to feel very overwhelmed with events, parties, concerts, finalising reports, family gatherings, cooking and wrapping gifts.

With so much going on in our minds it’s so easy to forget the beauty of this season as we get carried away with ‘getting through’ everything.

God has not purposed for us to just survive and get by, but to embrace the true Spirit of this season: to embrace Him. He is Perfection, Glory, Majesty, Divinity. He is Saviour, Messiah and our best friend. And He came to us as a baby boy!

Luke 2:9‭-‬11 (NLT)
Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great JOY to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

So don’t get too busy for Him. But take a moment, take a breath to imagine Him as a baby, to worship Him and focus on the beauty of Christmas, the beauty of Christ Himself.
