Advent - Inspirational meditation #5

Jesus' miraculous birth was foretold in the Old Testament. For example, Matthew ch.2 v.5-6 clearly shows that it was understood by the people of the day that He would be born in Bethlehem.

They knew the scriptures. They may not have understood all the specifics about how the Messiah could be both a suffering servant and an all-conquering king. They may not have been able to appreciate the implications of having a Messiah who was both prophet and priest. But they knew He was coming.

It was just that for the vast majority, His entry into the world was a surprise.

How do you feel about God's specific promises concerning your own destiny and prosperity? If He was to act suddenly, decisively to bring about a transformation of the situation you're in, how would you react?

Would it be a surprise? Would it be done 'according to your faith'?

As believers, we have a sacred responsibility to live a life where faith is exercised, where divine intervention is depended upon in order to demonstrate to an unbelieving world that the God of breakthroughs is still in the business of surprising them today.
