Never  Limit God’s Choices!

The Lord Is Always Faithful To His Promises And Commitments

Luke 1:30-35And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end…therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.

Experiencing Christmas Is Experiencing The Impossible

Luke 1:37For with God nothing will be impossible.

(The Amplified Bible) For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

(The Oxford Bible) For no word of God is without power.

Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.
