“And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary His mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising of many in Israel; and for a sign that will be spoken against” Luke 2:34
This Christmas season, I want to point your attention to the passage above. Jesus is appointed or set for the falling and rising of people. Since you belong to Him, He is appointed for your rising or lifting up. This is what He came for, that is why He went to take your place in the lowest part of the earth so that you can rise to the highest part. You can become the best. You can obtain first prize. This was the experience of Mary that is why she gave this that is always referred to as Mary’s Magnificent.
Luke 1:46-54 “And Mary said, my soul doth magnify the Lord, and my Spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For He hath regarded the low estate of His handmaiden: for behold from hence forth all generation shall call me blessed. For He that is mighty hath done to me great things and holy is His name. And His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his arm; He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich He hath sent empty away. He hath holpen His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy”.
Let me point out the things involved in your lifting that Mary prophesied about;
– He will show you His strength
– He will fill you good things
– He will exalt you
– He will help you
– He will do great things for you
– He will remember mercy in your case
In your lifting these are what you will experience in Jesus’ name. For He has been given for the rising of many including you. And so, like Mary did, you too rejoice in God your Saviour and let your soul magnify the Lord.
For unto you a child is born and unto you a Son is given who is given for your rising, your lifting.
Have a Merry Christmas And a New Year of Divine favour
