Word Filled Wednesday–Christmas Faith

WFWlogo

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.  I John 5:4

Christmas is a perfect season to be reminded that our God is able to do the impossible. When we remember Mary, a young girl who believed what God told her – that she would be the mother of the Messiah.  We remember the shepherds – just ordinary men who believed and followed the leading of the Lord to be the first to behold the newborn King.

These examples defy human understanding, but leave us standing in amazement at the plan of our Heavenly Father.  Before we knew Him, He loved us and had a plan to take us as sinful people and cleanse, renew bring us to Him. He is able to bring His will in whatever way He chooses to bring about His will in our lives.  What a powerful and loving God we serve!

May this Christmas season bring us to remembrance that He is able and we can put our trust and faith in Him.

  1. I haven't in awhile, but a lot of times in the past I would pray Jeremiah 32:27 which basically says (paraphased) that God is the God of all mankind and there is nothing impossible for him. I think it is so awesome the plan he had to save us with sending his son Jesus and the sacrifice of love Jesus did for us. I think we need to concentrate on that during the hectic holiday season and again truly remember the wonderful Reason for this season!
