Bible Reading: Mt. 1:18-23
Text: Isaiah. 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Day after day countless number of people bombard heaven with prayer requests of all kinds. Some of them ask God to give them children. Ordinarily when two married couples sleep together, the results should be babies. I don’t know if that happens in the animal kingdom, but it shall not be so with men.
Babies are not born just because a man sleeps with a woman. Babies are born to the human family because there is something they are coming to do.
It doesn’t matter how much Elizabeth and Zachariah prayed for baby, John would not be born until Jesus was ready to come. That is because John’s mission on earth was to herald the coming of Jesus.
It doesn’t matter how fervently Hannah prayed and fasted, Samuel would not be born until she was ready to give her back to God because he was coming to provide l leadership to the nation at a critical time in history.
Today, there are over two billion human beings on the earth, yet there is no single one of them who was born without a divine assignment. Everyone is born as a solution to some problem and to provide answers to some questions.
What problems were you born to solve for humanity? It is your duty to find out.
Jesus was born to solve the problem of salvation for humanity. Samuel was born to provide Isreal with a prophet. Samson was born to end the oppression of the Philistine.
That particular strength in you, what is it for?
When Elizabeth met Mary, what she carried in her womb leaped. You must find the problem that the power and strength of God in you resonates with.
There are a number of issues on earth today that need quick intervention of a saviour. Some of these problems are prostitution, child abuse, divorce, examination malpractice, cultism, corruption, unemployment, fraud, terrorism, etc. These and many other problems facing the nations of the earth need urgent solutions from you.
The salvation, you and I have today is a solution from one Man.
Like Christ, you also have problems you were created to solve, you are to discover and solve them. Or you will be another problem that heaven will have to send someone else to solve.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for your grace upon my life.
2. Oh Lord God, help me to discover the problem I was created to solve
3. Thank you for answered prayers Lord.
