Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 7:14 which says, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel.”
So here Isaiah is prophesying that God will give a sign, because Ahaz had said that He would not test the Lord God by asking Him for a sign, so Isaiah said that even though Ahaz didn’t ask for one, God would give one, and the sign was that a virgin would give birth to a child (you may be asking how is that possible but we will get to that later), and His name would be Immanuel, wow, but that reminds me of Mary and Joseph, ”
And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy–the Son of God. (ESV Luke 1:28-35)
So Ahaz didn’t know how long it was going to be until the sign, but the sign still came, so Mary gave birth even though she was a virgin because the Holy Spirit was upon her, and She gave birth to the son of God, but now you may be asking why on earth any of this happened, well because we all have a problem, and none of us can fix it (including psychiatrist that give you drugs) but this isn’t a problem like a physical problem, in fact no physical thing can see it, because it is sin, it is in your heart, not your physical heart, but your spiritual heart, only God can see the spiritual heart, so accepting Jesus as our saviour is the only way to fix the problem, but people don’t like to admit that they sin, and that they need help, they like to think that they don’t have sin, or that it is just a psychological problem and take drugs, but that won’t help, only Jesus will, thank you Jesus.
So only Jesus can help us, and it you are one of the people I described in the paragraph above, and you want to accept Jesus as your saviour please pray this prayer with me (you don’t have to pray the exact same prayer, just something like it), “Dear Lord, I am so sorry for all the wrong things I’ve done, and please help me to know that you are the only person that can fix my problem, please come into my heart and make me clean, thank you Jesus, in your name amen.”
Have you accepted the only person (or God) who can fix your problem into your life?
