“Recognizing the Lord Jesus”
 
As believers, we have many opportunities to recognize the work of the Lord Jesus in us. All we need to do is think about some of the things that we go through. At the time, we might think why, why me? But later we can see the hand of the Lord.
 
Some good questions to reflect on: How have you seen the hand of the Lord at work in you?
What is it that the Lord God is teaching you?
 
Well, one might say, how do I know if it is the Lord.
 
Please read the following verses.
 
Luke 1:39-45
39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth.
41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
42 In a loud voice, she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!
43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
45 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”
 
This a remarkable Biblical account. The unborn child being carried by Mary’s cousin Elizabeth recognizes the unborn Messiah. As a matter of fact, Mary has just become pregnant by the Holy Spirit with the Messiah.
 
If an unborn child in the womb can recognize Christ, I would suggest to you that we too can do this with the Holy Spirit’s help.
 
How have you seen the Lord at work in your life this week?
 
What is He teaching you?
 
These are life-changing moments, don’t let them go to waste.
 
Be Blest, Be a Blessing
