MATTHEW 3.16-17 After Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for Him and He saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down to Him. 17 And the came a voice from heaven:
This is My beloved Son
I take delight in Him (HCSB)
WHAT CHILD IS THIS?
God Incarnate, The Promised Messiah; MATTHEW 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you shall call Him Jesus because He will save His people from their sins.
Confirmed by angels; (Matthew1:20) 20 But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit. We question circumstances in our lives, whether God is allowing things to take place because of a bigger blessing that’s coming down the pikes, or if God is trying to teach us a lesson of some sort? Whatever the case, Our faith is always being stretched. I submit that as many times as I have tried, I can’t wrap my head around who He is, and the significance of His ministry. The Son of God, whose coming was preordained by God Himself, and confirmed by angels. Wow, this Is a big deal!
He is Prophecy Fulfilled!:
In order to validate God’s power, and sovereignty, Jesus’ ministry had to come full circle. (1John 2:1) My little children, I am writing to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father-Jesus Christ the Righteous One.
So I ask myself, How do I recognize the presence of God at work in me?
He is present when I am uncertain, when things seem bleak. Then my situation becomes crystal clear when I step out in faith and relinquish all control to the Holy Spirit. When I am afraid, His presence is felt in His calming spirit, accompanied by a resounding “I got you”
My prayer and my hope for the upcoming year is for a serious spiritual revival and growth; growth that will unleash all the goodness and grace of the Lord on and in me. I pray for the Lord to be with me in every baby step I take toward my emancipation. Aloha and God Bless
