It's Not About Who You Know
By Victoria Osteen - Dec 09, 2016

In scripture, when the angel visited Mary and told her that she would be giving birth to the Son of God, Mary had a question for the angel. She said, "How can this be since I know not a man?" Mary was, of course, asking about the physical realm, but I believe we can look at this in a spiritual sense, too. God is saying today, "My promises are not dependent on who you know." You don't have to rub shoulders with certain people in order to fulfill your destiny. No matter what's going on around you, God will overshadow you to bring forth His promises!

Instead of considering your circumstances today, why don't you consider your God? He loves you with an everlasting love. The dream He has placed in your heart may seem impossible, it may look too big, but don't overanalyze it or try to reason it all out. Follow Mary's example. Dare to say, "God, I don't see a way, but I know You have a way. Let it happen to me according to Your Word."

When thoughts come saying, "It's too late. It's impossible," ignore it. He always has an option we cannot see. He is saying today, "Every promise I've spoken over you, every dream I've placed in your heart, I will bring to pass." Receive His word by faith and trust that He is working behind the scenes. It doesn't matter who you know or where you've been when you are a child of Almighty God!

"The angel answered, 'The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you…'" (Luke 1:35, NIV)
