Surrender - Cathy Hopkins
As I sat with Holy Spirit, with full surrender to Him as a question in my heart and mind and what that looks like, He brought a picture to my heart of Mary when the angel of God, Gabriel, visited her. The Lord showed me how Mary was overshadowed by Holy Spirit and Jesus was formed in her. When I say "yes" to Him and He overshadows me, Jesus - His Spirit, is formed in me.
He showed me that this was not a one-time event for Mary alone but showed me how we each can experience His presence and be filled with Him and conceive and birth His plan for our lives.
Please read the following with a sense of Him speaking to you as His child:
“Do not be afraid, for you have found favor with God. The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and the holy plan of God for you be birthed within you. For with God nothing is impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.”
Our response only needs to be what Mary’s was: “Let it be done to me according to Your Word.”
