The Birth of Promise

And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. ~ Luke 2:7

Here Mary, the young virgin, has carried the child of promise. But now that he is born, she has to resort to laying him in a manger.

Both Mary and Joseph received angelic visitation, promising that this child was the redeemer, the savior. He would be the one that the entire nation had hoped and prayed for. Surely, God would have made provision for the promise to be birthed, someone would have a large room, clean and ready for the birth of a king!sunrise-1886334_1920

In spite of the humble birth, Mary cared for her promise! She used everything that she had to care for her newborn.

When a promise is birthed, it does not always look the way we expect it to look. When we have nurtured and cared for the gifts that God places inside of us, we naturally have great expectation: best selling books, filled auditoriums, people flocking to our businesses.

Encourage yourself this morning by reflecting on what God has promised you. What looks like a humble birth of your promise, may very well be the beginning of great ministry.

Enjoy your cup of coffee and power up your day being confident in promise.
