In this teaching, we hear Pastor Mike talk about the Holy Spirit as our guide in reaching our destiny. We do so much to keep God from guiding us and you might be thinking “no, He’s God. You can’t tie up God. Can’t He just make Himself free?” They said the same thing to Jesus. They said,
if you are the Son of God, save yourself and come down from the cross!Matthew 27:40
Jesus didn’t save himself. Why? Because God has given people an uncomfortable amount of freedom to sin and to reject Him. We’ve got a world of people trying to reach their destiny, but they don’t know where they’re going.
28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”
29 Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 And he will reign over Israel[c] forever; his Kingdom will never end!”
34 Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”
35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.
