And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. (Luke 1:30-31 KJV)

It seemed like an ordinary day for the young Mary until her space was invaded by an Angel which bore a message of such a magnitude the world would not be same thereafter. Right from the beginning, God intended to visit the world and restore that which was lost by Adam and break the shackles of the devil. His entrance had to be through his established order, Christ would have to come through a human womb.

The coming of Jesus dealt with insecurities and brought favour for Mary. It’s your time to experience the same. God stepped down so that you may step up! Christ descended to redeem you so that you may ascend to the level of life that he made you for. You were a slave, at the mercy of the devil who determined your going in and your coming out but Christ broke the circle for you. Now you can walk in liberty that he brought.

Because he descended from a superior domain into a lesser one (from heaven to earth), he paid for your promotion, he paid for your healing and he paid for your progress. I want you to know today that Jesus paid the price so you may have the prize. Don’t settle for less because he paid for more!

Refuse to remain a slave of the devil, a captive under his control. You are free today to conceive ideas and execute them. You are free to walk in power and authority here on earth. Your destiny is in your hands, change the story of your life.

Take time today to reflect on your life. Look at the areas where you have presented yourself to the devil a willing slave for him to do his bidding. These are areas in which you have been made to stoop so low with no hope of rising. Christ descended so that you may ascend with him. He is stretching forth his hand to you today and saying, ‘Rise up, your time has come!’

I pray for you today that your tired hands will find a new grip. Everything that kept you a slave and prisoner in this life is releasing you now because the author of life has come. The one who gives life in abundance without reservation, Christ Jesus.

Declare this,
Thank you Lord Jesus for you descended so that I may ascend. You came down so that I may go up. I rise above every limitation as I embrace the promises of God. My fears and insecurities are overcome and favour has become my portion in Jesus’ name!
