Walk Toward The Baby And Away From Fear

The title of this blog came from something my birthmother said.

Can you imagine what Mary must have felt that day that the Angel appeared to her and told her that she would have a baby, and his name would be Jesus? I can imagine she was afraid. I know she was scared, she said how can this be I know not a man.

As I think about this, I think of all the women who were raped and conceived a baby. For Mary, it was a joyous occasion, but for these women it was not. When a woman becomes pregnant through rape she is afraid, she feels worthless, she was violated against, she has negative feelings about herself. When you meet her or are friends with her, please don’t tell her that the first thing she should do is have an abortion. Let her know that she is loved and that Jesus loves her, and She is made worthy through Jesus Christ. Show her Grace and Mercy. Don’t be judgemental.

Help her in any way that you can and help her see that the baby that is growing inside of her has a purpose, and the baby will help her heal. Pray with her and help her to walk towards the coming of that baby and help her to walk away from fear.

My birthmother was raped, and she stayed at a home for unwed mothers, and the people there showed her the Grace and Mercy of God. They helped her any way that they could, and they walked with her towards the birth of her baby and helped her walk away from fear.

As Mary walked away from fear towards the birth of her baby, imagine the people that talked about her, the people that turned their back on her. The day finally came where Joseph and Mary had to talk the long walk to Bethlehem.  Imagine the uncomfortable ride on the donkey to get to Bethlehem where our Saviour Jesus Christ the Messiah was born.

Are You Ready For Your Miracle?


John 11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.

The Bible says we don’t have because we don’t ask. We have to come to him and ask and believe that he will do what we asked because he can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask.

Will the answer always be the one we want? Lazarus was sick and was very close to Jesus. I wonder if Mary and Martha felt that Jesus is on his way Lazarus will get better. But Jesus didn’t show up, and Lazarus died.

What now. Their brother was gone. Their hearts were broken. Sometimes while we wait on God to answer our prayers, it can difficult, frustrating and we can even say where are you, Jesus. We have got to keep walking this walk.

Yes, it may look like what you asked God about is dead what we don’t know is that God is working on it.

Finally, after Lazarus had been dead for a couple of days, Jesus finally shows up. Well to Mary and Martha they knew their brother would rise again they didn’t know what was about to happen. That is the same way with us the situation may look like nothing is getting done, and all of hell has come against us things just get worse and worse instead of better. When all of hell is coming against us, we need to rejoice and keep pressing forward. Just when you think that the prayer will not get answered, and doubt tries to set in and all kinds of things Jesus will show up. He has to show up. He said he would never leave us or forsake us.

Was Mary and Martha prepared for what was about to happen?  I don’t think so. When Jesus stepped on the scene, everything else went a whole different direction.

Are you ready for your Miracle? It may not come the way you wanted or the timeframe you wanted.  What you asked God for and felt like it had died get ready for your miracle because when Jesus steps into the situation everything else changes.

Breaking The Alabaster Box



Luke 7:37-48 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

38And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.  (The ointment that she used was roughly a year’s wages and in today’s world it could probably cost around 10,000)

39Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.

44And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

45Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

46My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

Matthew 26:6,7,12-13

6Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

7There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

12For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

13Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

As we look at these two passages of scripture we see a woman who has an alabaster box with ointment (that could have been roughly around 12 oz of ointment)

When we look at Matthew 26:7 we see where it was poured on his head. In Luke, we see she stood behind him weeping and began to wash his feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair and kissed his feet and anointed them with ointment.

Could it be possible that this was the same woman in Matthew and Luke? I think so. In Matthew, she poured it on his head, and I believe she was broken and began to weep and cry so much that she wiped his feet with her hair and kissed his feet and anointed them with ointment.

When she did this people got upset with her. The people became so upset because the ointment was not a cheap ointment and she also broke a custom law she let her hair down to wipe his feet. Plus they could tell that the ointment was expensive because of the aroma that filled the room. She went beyond the extraordinary and broke the box to use the ointment.

So many people are called upon to do something, but because of their unbroken state God won’t use them until they are willing to become broken and step out of their comfort zone and go beyond the extraordinary.

We need to go beyond the extraordinary and break the box. When we go beyond the unusual, we will see things happen. People will get upset with us when we do the extraordinary and break the box and pour the oil out but we must remain sensitive to the voice of God in our lives and not let the distractions of life get in the way of what God wants to do when we step out and break the box and do the extraordinary.

Breaking the box is very humbling, and it helps to stay sensitive to God and helps us to stay close to the Lord.

Once the box is broken, and the ointment is being poured out we will see a move of God in our lives and God will then begin changing us and use us for his Kingdom. Our ointment to God is also giving ourselves to him. Our Praise & Worship to him is the aroma that fills the room, and he created us to Praise and Worship him.

Living for God is beautiful, Precious, extraordinary. He gives us Peace, Joy, Rest for our souls.

I want to share a quote with you from Joy Haney’s book “Breaking the Alabaster Box.”

“Mary could not break the box until first she herself was broken. Because of her intense broken heart she did things that in normal situations she would not have done. It was the breaking in her that changed her way of thinking and her way of doing things. She did something that she had never done before. It shocked those who were in the room with her. There were murmurings and accusations against her; it was a moment in history. No one knew how to deal with this astonishing occasion. Even Jesus sensed the impact of the moment so much that He said,” Wherever this gospel is preached in the world, the story of this woman’s breaking will be told as a memorial to her.”

She went beyond the ordinary. She forged ahead into new territories all because her heart was broken and because of her intense love and reverence for Jesus. Her breaking caused her to do something unusual; it broke all traditions. (Joy Haney-Breaking the Alabaster Box)

How Precious is your ointment? Are you going to leave the ointment in the Alabaster box sitting on a shelf because the box looks nice and the ointment in the box because it is so expensive or are you going to break the box and pour everything out on him and let him use you in the way he wants too. Before God can do, something extraordinary something must be broken.

I want my Alabaster box to be broken which is my life so that God can use me in the way he wants to. I want to be a living sacrifice that is holy and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service.
