The Solution To The World's Problems



I recently watched a video that featured Mrs. Michelle Obama sharing about the Girls Opportunity Alliance, an organization to empower girls by providing them with opportunities to be educated and to develop leadership skills. Mrs. Obama referred to a round table discussion she had at a summit in Chicago, "if you were a person of faith of any kind, depending on what you believe in, wouldn't it be just like that faith to put the answer to all of our problems in the mind of a girl?...Wouldn't that be how God would work?"

As I took a few seconds to take in her statement the thought came to my mind, "That is exactly what God did." God put the answer to all the problems in the world not only in the mind of a young girl, but in the womb of a young girl named Mary. He put the answer in her mind as she was told that the power of the Most High would overshadow her and that she would conceive a son and that he would be great and called the son of the Most High, and receive the throne of David reigning over Jacobs descendent's with a never-ending kingdom. (Luke 1:32-33). He put the answer to the world's problem in her womb. The answer to the world's problem was given to her to nourish, to carry and to deliver to the world.


The answer for the penalty of sin...inside a girl.

The answer for overcoming the power of sin...inside a girl.

The answer for being delivered from the presence of sin...inside a girl.

The answer for the poor...inside a girl.

The answer for the brokenhearted...inside a girl.

The answer for the captives...inside a girl.

The answer for those who mourn...inside a girl.

The answer for rebuilding the ancient ruins...inside a girl.

The answer for restoring places devastated...inside a girl.

The answer for renewing the ruined cities...inside a girl.

The answer for shame...inside a girl.

The answer for the the hungry...inside a girl.

The answer for the thirsty...inside a girl.

The answer for the sick...inside a girl.

The answer for the weary...inside a girl.

The answer for overcoming death...inside a girl.The answer for suffering...inside a girl.

Every single problem that the world would face the answer to that problem was inside a girl.


God chose a young girl to carry and deliver the world's problem solver when he was knitting her in her mother's womb. She was chosen.

This should encourage every girl and every woman that God wants girls and women to be a part of bringing the answers to the world's problems to the world. Only a female can give birth and a womb is required. The Lord has need of those who are female. There are specific solutions to the world's problems that only you can carry and deliver. You are blessed and highly favored BECAUSE you are female!


What about Joseph?


Mrs. Obama stated that if we believe the answers to the world's problems are inside the mind of girls we would need to invest in them in order to get those answers. This is what I believe Joseph did. Joseph initially wanted to divorce Mary and separate from her. Because her pregnancy was against the law. It was assumed that she had done something wrong. This is no different than many mindsets in the church today.


When a woman begins to "show" that God has placed gifts inside of her that are to be used to bring glory to God there are some churches that want to divorce her because they have a limited view of God's power to overshadow a woman in supernatural ways.

Once Joseph heard from the Lord that Mary was indeed carrying the answer to the world's problem inside of her, he invested in her. He committed to her and became devoted to her.


What's the invitation for Joseph?


The invitation is to be still and listen for the Lord to reveal the Truth about Mary's condition and invest in Mary.


Mary needed Joseph. Joseph protected and was a guide and a covering for Mary. We are never called into ministry to the Father alone. Mary and Joseph were in ministry to the Father together.


The pattern of scripture is that God uses couples. Two are better than one. (Eccl. 4:9-12).

Joseph pray and be open to hearing and seeing God reveal Himself in ways that you have never experienced before. Don't focus on the law, focus on the voice of the Lord. Invest in Mary. What are ways that you can create and hold space for the girls and women in your life to nourish and deliver what God has placed inside of her?


What about the innkeeper?


There are some people who have been given the privilege of having space that could provide the opportunity for Mary to give birth. Unfortunately, it is overcrowded. There is no room.


If you are unwilling to make room for Mary do not be offended or critical when you hear that Mary has gone to an unlikely place to give birth.

What's the invitation for the innkeeper?


The invitation is to make room for Mary


Although it is true that it appears that it wasn't the will of God that Mary deliver the answer to the world's problem in the inn. This should cause a bit of concern. Who would not want miracles, signs, wonders, blessings, and the answer to the world's problems in their midst?


Be careful who you are unwilling to make room for innkeepers. You will be missing out on a blessing. Make room for Mary.

What's the invitation for Mary?


The invitation is to be sober and vigilant.


The angel is about to appear in your life and reveal to you what the Holy Spirit has placed inside of you that needs to be born. Perhaps you have already had your visitation. Did you say yes? Are you hesitating because the culture of the church has made you believe the lie that the Lord has no need of you? Don't believe the lie.


You have a spiritual womb that holds the answer to a problem in the world. The Lord has need of you. When the angel appears follow Mary's example and simply say, "I am the Lord's servant. May your word to me be fulfilled." (Luke 1:38).

Mary did not seek permission from anyone. She just simply surrendered her whole body to the Lord Most High for the purpose of carrying and delivering the answer to the world's problems to the world. And God brought to her the people and the space she needed to deliver that answer to the world. Be patient, wait and surrender your whole self to the Most High.

Therefore I urge you...sisters in view of God's mercy to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your true and proper worship. (Romans 12:1 KJV)
