The Solution To The Worlds Problem: Inside a Girl
This blog was originally written in July 2022 with a few edits in November 2023)
I recently watched a video that featured Mrs. Michelle Obama sharing about the Girls Opportunity Alliance, an organization that empowers 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 inside a girl given to her to nourish, carry, and 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 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 put inside a girl.
God chose a young girl to carry and deliver the answer to the world's problems 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 needs those who were born female because you have a womb. 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 to get those answers. This is what I believe Joseph did. Joseph initially wanted to divorce Mary. 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 of men 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 who 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).
Maybe you are a Joseph, so pray and be open to hearing and seeing God reveal Himself in ways that you have never experienced before. Don't be a Pharisee and focus on the law, focus on the voice of the Lord. Invest in Mary. How can you 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?
Some people 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.
The Unlikely Places
Mary gave birth outside of her home, outside of the inn. She gave birth outside. In a stable. When you see women giving birth to ministries outside the four walls of the church and in unlikely places it is because they want to make names for themselves, it's because they have been called to proclaim the name of Christ and no room has been made for them in the churches where they attend. They had no other choice but to give birth to the Christ in them outside of the four walls of the church; in the stables all around the world.
What's the invitation for the innkeeper?
The invitation is to make room for Mary
Some are not willing to make room for Mary to 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 woman of God and reveal to you what the Holy Spirit has placed a solution inside of you that needs to be born. Perhaps you have already had your visitation? Did you say yes? Are you hesitating because you believe the lie that the Lord does not 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 placed the Christ in 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 simply surrendered her whole body to the Lord Most High to carry and deliver the answer to the world's problems to the world. And God sent her to the people and the places she needed to go 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)
