A Year of Greater
June 23, 2017
Luke 1:38 NKJV
“Then Mary said; “Behold the maidservant of the Lord; LET IT BE UNTO ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD, and the angel departed from her.”
Because God is sovereign, meaning He is number 1; He cannot, nor ever will, violate His own word; He just can’t do what He wants when He wants because of the authority He originally gave to man (Adam and Eve) which He’ll never take back. God limited Himself! If God could do whatever He wanted when He wanted, He would have come down immediately and put an end in the garden to the mess Adam and Eve had made that very day, but because He gave His word and put the earth in their hands, He couldn’t! God flows through man and because God is a spirit, He needs the cooperation of man to see His great power work in this earth. It took 4000 YEARS before someone fully cooperated with God so that God could enter the earth and clean up the mess that Adam and Eve made. That cooperation came through Mary. The virgin birth (do not miss this) gave God/Jesus AUTHORITY to now take it to the devil (see John 5:27). A person was needed to re-establish what Adam and Eve was able to do without any restrictions on their lives. This is what Jesus did for us when Mary cooperated with the Word of God so Jesus could come into this world. He then was able to pay for all sins and re-establish authority (the use of power, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) for anyone who would believe!
Mary had had to cooperate, she wasn’t forced. She chose to allow God to flow through her! You lay hands on the sick and they will be healed. Matthew 10:8. God now heals the sick through us. You speak to the mountain about God and the mountain moves. Mark 11:23. God now moves mountains through your words.
Right now God is flowing through me for you, to help you so you can now know what to do to get results in your life and enjoy life and that more abundantly (John 10:10). Respond now…that’s your part, that’s what the bible calls faith! Mary was needed then to cooperate so Jesus could come into the earth and solve the problem that Adam and Eve made, and it’s still the same today; you’ll need to cooperate with the Word of God, the power of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in you. Nothing will happen without your cooperation, the use of authority given to you! It is a year of Greater… greater health, finances, marriages, relationships, job promotions, having all debts cancelled, peace, strength, whatever this word promises. Just as Mary decided, so now you do the same. A year of Greater… “BE IT UNTO ME,” I release this power by authority in Jesus Name!
