Chief Prince Gabriel was the heavenly diplomat who announced His birth to His mother and earthly caretaker father. I noticed that a very special woman was chosen as His mother. Here are her characteristics:
* Mary was highly favored/had found favor with God
* She was blessed among women
* The Lord was with her (Luke 1: 26-28)
Chief Prince Gabriel gave her details about the child and His miraculous conception:
* He would be conceived by the power of the Holy Ghost (Lk 1: 35)
* He would be a Holy child because a man was not involved in His conception (Lk 1: 35)
* He would be great, and would be called the Son of the Highest (Lk 1: 32)
* The Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David (Lk 1: 32)
* He would reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and His kingdom would be everlasting (Lk 1 : 33).
We know that Jesus was an unusual child because of the details of His life. His IQ was extremely high because at age 12, He had the intellect of an individual with a post doctoral degree (Lk 2: 42-48)
He also excelled in wisdom, stature and was in favor with God and man (Lk 2: 52).
We can pray for our children to be just like Jesus as they grow. It is not impossible. Let’s believe GOD.
