[The Glory Unveiled]
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. ( Luke 1:35 )
The question that necessitated this response [our anchor verse of Scripture] was one that was asked to find out how something seemingly impossible could happen. In reality, there are certain terrestrial events and activities that only celestial bodies and entities can handle. What Mary needed to know was not necessary who will do what the Angel Gabriel had just said to her in the earlier verses. She wanted to know the approach and method of bringing about that beautiful solution. But instead of telling her “what”, the Angel mentioned a personality that makes the experiences of the invisible realm tangible and visible; the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit encases mortality, immortality is produced and challenges and difficulties become avenues for breeding solutions even through impossible means. But then, if it came from God, it must have the mark of God. God is particular about honour and identity. Anything that came from God carries the identity of God. This is why humans carry the identity of God (image and likeness) because we came from Him. Now we know that our problems are not great, it is the right avenue that is not yet contacted that is why it seem impossible and helpless. So, let us draw from the well of the Holy Spirit. Let us lean on Him for all our needs. And then we will turn around to see no contentions.
Prayer_Bead: Precious Holy Spirit, thank you for your indwelling presence and power. Teach me to depend on you utterly. May your identity remain on me as you continually source my needs.
