My Christmas notes- Your destiny is bigger than your birth-4
Matt. 2: 1 “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,”
Luke 2:7 “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
John 1:46 “And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?…”
Beloved, maybe the world is asking such questions from you; Wondering if anything good can ever come out of your life. Men are probably judging you based on your background. They have looked at your qualification and concluded that you don’t have a chance. Perhaps you’ve concurred with them and accepted their verdict as truth, I wrote this piece for you!
I want you to trash that verdict. Discard it and prove them wrong. You can force them to change their little minds. Look at Jesus’ response to Nathanael:
John 1:47 “Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!”
John 1:48 “Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.”
John 1:49 “Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.”
Jesus responded not with insult or argument, he didn’t fight him or become depressed and suicidal. Jesus simply unleashed his gifts and potentials. He proved to Nathanael that it’s not about the place, either Bethlehem or Nazareth, it’s about what you have on your inside.
Jesus used a prophetic gift to answer him. Friend, you also have gifts on your inside. Hear this:
Ephesians 4:8 “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.”
To be continued…
