Expect God's Best!

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
This verse of scripture is one of the most famous verses in the New Testament and has always been associated with Christmas. Mary was very surprised at the angel’s announcement and had no idea of the spiritual, historical, social and world changing significance the birth of this child would have for the entire world. This was something brand new and Jesus Christ was God’s best.
As we approach the Holiday season this year, learn to start expecting God’s best. While on your "journey to wellness", practice keeping your expectations high in spite of what you may be facing. It’s easy to stop expecting to hear any good news regarding your health when you’ve heard the same report every time you’ve gone for your doctor’s appointment or received the results of your medical exam. Please know that God will do something good regarding your health so you can always "expect God’s best" in your life.
Always expect God’s best whenever you are faced with "bad news". I’ve noticed throughout the bible there are constant examples that teach us that our physical challenges are no match for God. From healing the sick to raising the dead, these things could not have been accomplished without His divine intervention. What man deems impossible is always possible with God.
Mark 10:27 – "and Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Human biology has not changed since humans were placed on this earth. Mary, the mother of Jesus as well as the rest of the human race at that time were well aware that a child could not be conceived without the sexual union of a man and woman. "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?" Luke 1:34, yet the child was born in spite of the "human impossibility" of its occurrence.
Expect God’s best the next time you go for your next medical appointment. It’s been proven scientifically that a positive outlook on life is beneficial to your health. Learning to believe God when things look bad is an act of faith that always gets His attention. "Human impossibility" has never stopped God. Yes we have the responsibility of going to the doctor and following medical advice, but it’s God’s responsibility to do the healing. So "expect God’s best". Don’t let the amount of time you’ve spent–or will need to spend on "your journey to wellness" discourage you. It took about four hundreds years after the "Old Testament" was finished before Jesus was born onto the earth. Most of us have developed the habit of wanting everything we need in life to happen immediately. Practice being patient, do everything you know to do and God will complete his work in your life.
While the holiday season is underway, and you continue traveling on your "journey to wellness", remember what the angel said to Mary. Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee. Expect God to move on your behalf. Expect the gift of healing along with the other gifts you will receive.
Expect God’s best!
Blessings on your journey to wellness
