You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” - Luke 1:45
The angel of God visited Mary and told her that she will get conceived and brings forth a Son and He will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest. Mary asked the angel that how it will be possible since she doesn’t know a man. 

The reply given by the angel of God is recorded in Luke 1:35. “And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God."

Many who lived on those days doesn’t know much about the Holy Spirit and His power but yet Mary believed the words came from the presence of God and she submitted herself to the hands of God saying, “Let it be to me according to your word.”

She knows that she will face lot of trouble when people around her know that she got conceived before knowing her husband. The word of God which was told to her was far behind her understanding. She was an ordinary girl who could not foresee in what way the Child that she is going to bear will make a change to the mankind but yet she believed the word of God spoken to her and she submitter herself into the hands of God. 

The outcome is she became blessed and all that was spoken to her got fulfilled. Let’s see another incident from the Bible in which a son of a nobleman got healed. 

There was a nobleman whose son was sick. As he heard that Jesus Christ had come out to Galilee, he went to Him and pleaded Him to come to his house to heal his son who is at the point of death. 

“The nobleman said to Him, ‘Sir, come down before my child dies!’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go your way; your son lives.’ So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way" - John 4:49,50.
Actually the nobleman requested Jesus to come to his home to heal his son. But Jesus Christ promised him that his son lives and told him to return back.
What Jesus did was far behind the man’s expectations. He wanted God to come and heal but Jesus Christ spoke a promise. If I was there in that situation, I would have insisted Jesus again to come to my home to heal my son.
But what the nobleman did. He believed the promise of Jesus that was given to him and he went his way. As he believed God’s word, his son got healed.
You might have got a promise from Jesus Christ. It might be far from your understanding. The situation might look different. All you have to do is to believe in God’s promise. When you believe in His word and surrender your life to Him, you will see the fulfillment of His word in your life.
Recently in the beginning of this year when my wife got pregnant, Jesus Christ promised us that she will deliver the child in a normal way. I was actually afraid because my wife will not bear even a simple pain. We were alone for some 4 months in which she did all the work in house and in her workplace. Daily she used to travel few kilometers in bus and she never followed the diet given by doctor. As days progressed she got pain when she went for walking. So she stopped that. When she left for her native place in the 8th month of her pregnancy, her sugar level was high and her weight also was high above the normal level.
I was afraid and situation also was different. But all that we did was we prayed claiming God’s promise. We were weak in faith but yet we believed the promise given by God and we prayed with His promise. Few weeks back by God’s grace we got a girl child from the hands of God through normal delivery.
My dear young friends, situations might be different. You might not understand the promise given by God to you. Sarah was barren when God promised Abraham that his generation will be of great number. It was far behind his understanding but yet Abraham believed. God fulfilled His promise in Abraham’s life.
Similarly Jesus Christ will fulfill all that He has promised you so far as you believe and surrender your life in His hands. You will be blessed as you believe His word. God bless you.
