“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee.” (Luke 1:26, NLT).
During the Christmas season I was going through Luke chapter one and the above verse caught my attention. God actually sent the angel Gabriel from heaven to look for the virgin Mary in a village. I was excited when I began to meditate on it, and I’ll share with you why.
I thought the “village” was a place of limited opportunities. I thought it was a place of obscurity. The village is a place where “classy” people don’t stay. Yet God sent His angel to such a place to deliver a message of favour to Mary.
Location does not matter to God when He makes up His mind to bless you. It doesn’t matter how under developed the place you reside is. People might say there is no opportunity where you are or where you are headed. It might even be that where you work you are not being paid well. Or it is a place where people say there is no future. Have you heard of the force of God’s favour?
Wherever you are, whatever you do, whatever state you are in your life, finances, career, family, health, know that you are the favoured of God. Mary was favoured by God and He found her out even in a village.
You cannot be disadvantaged because you have God in you. The force of God’s favour shall locate you this year in the name of Jesus. Be conscious of His favour and walk in obedience this year. Great year ahead my friend. #BeInspired.
