When You Know Not a Man
In scripture, when the angel visited Mary and told her that she would be giving birth to the Son of God, Mary had a pretty big question for the angel. She said, “How can this be seeing that I know not a man?” Mary was of course asking about the physical realm. She wasn’t married and had never been with a man. But, I believe we can look at this in a spiritual sense, too. God is saying today, “My promises are not dependent on man.” You don’t have to know certain people in order to fulfill your destiny. You don’t have to have certain connections in the natural because the spirit of God will overshadow you to bring forth His promises!
Sometimes we think, “If I could just get my boss to like me, then he’d give me that promotion. If I could just get in to that certain school, then I’d be qualified. If I just had some important, influential friends, maybe I could get a good break.” No, God’s promises are not dependent on who you know or who you don’t know. The Scripture says, “Promotion doesn’t come from people. It comes from God.” When it’s your time to be promoted, healed or restored, God doesn’t go check with your friends, your neighbors or your co-workers. Just like with Mary, He says, “I can make it happen without a man.”
Instead of considering your circumstances today, why don’t you consider your God? He is the all-powerful Creator of the universe. The dream He has placed in your heart may seem impossible, it may look too big, but don’t overanalyze it and 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,” learn to ignore them. That may be one report, but remember, God has another report. 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 it 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)
