“And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age:” and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.” Luke 1:36 (KJV)
The fact that you are serving God does not mean that challenges will not come. In fact, that is the more reason why challenges will come up against you. Therefore, it is vitally important that you feed yourself with the Word of God, because when challenges come, it is what you have inside you that will determine whether you will float or not.
In the book of 1 Corinthians 10:13, the Word of God tells us: “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”.(KJV)
There is nothing you are facing today that someone had not gone through. Nothing! There is no new thing that you will pass through. There are people who have been through similar situations and came out of it. There are also those who went through it and they sank in it because they did not apply themselves to the Word
Zachariah and Elizabeth kept on serving God. As they served, a problem that had lasted for many years eventually came to an end one day. While Zachariah was in the presence of the Lord, there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord and said to him, fear not. There is no way you can be in God’s presence and go without. Something supernatural has to happen. He was in unbelief and was struck dumb so that he will not abort the miracle.
The same angel came to Mary in verse 36 to announce the expiration of Elizabeth’s barrenness. In other words, Mary, in case you are still wondering how it is going to happen because you are still a virgin, I who overruled doctors’ in your cousin’s house will overrule natural laws in your life. In the same way I declare over your life, the overruling grace of God will give you the supernatural miracle In Jesus’ name.
