Above and Beyond Limitations of This World
Luke 2:7 (KJB) 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.
Did you realize that there was no room for Jesus Christ from the very moment he was born on this earth?
It is nothing new today many people have no room for Him and His will for their lives today.
Jesus Christ has faced rejection since day one of His life on this earth!
This world does not have room for Jesus Christ.
This world does not have time for Jesus Christ.
But Mary did.
She lovingly scooped her first born son up for his humble birth, likely alongside her husband Joseph. They were among unpretentious surroundings but Mary was willing, ready, and prepared for His birth!
The Bible states they were in a manger because there was no room for them to lodge in a proper room. This means they were likely surrounded by animals in a stall being housed in lowly a stable. Mary wrapped Him lovingly and tightly in strips of cloth and placed Him in a manger, which was really a feeding trough used for the animals.
Mary had an innate love for Jesus Christ despite the surroundings and circumstances about them!
This humble stable in Bethlehem was transformed into the supernatural birth place of a great miracle!
God can securely dwell in your life bringing about new birth and work great miracles despite any situation or circumstance at hand (Romans 8:28 KJB)
