“Gabriel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!’”
Series: Give Birth to a Revival
We have in the twenty first century, with the advance of science and technology, begun thinking ourselves to be of utmost importance taking the love, protection, grace, kindness and the mercy of God for granted.
What brings revival in the Christian’s life is but the presence and the Person of the Holy Spirit.
If not for the Holy Spirit, one sees nothing but emptiness, experiences nothing but vacuum.
It is His presence and power that allows one to encounter God.
Gabriel tells Mary she’s favoured and that the Lord is with her. The definition of favour is that the Lord is with someone.
If God is not with someone, it doesn’t matter if they have the biggest blessings of this world.
If God is with a person, even though the whole world may turn against them, they are favoured.
Revival does not begin with a person going after God, but with Him coming after them.
Before anyone in the Bible decided to pursue after God, God pursued them and searched them out. He exposed a part of Himself that drew them into a continual consistent pursuit of Him.
Revival starts with God- with His presence.
Being favoured of God with His presence brings forth revival in the Christian’s life and in the lives around them.
