38Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. [simple_tooltip content=’26 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.

28 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

29 But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.

30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”

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.

36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.

37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”

38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.’](Luke 1:26-38)[/simple_tooltip]


Everything about Jesus’ birth was natural and normal except one thing: A man didn’t provide the seed. The Holy Spirit of God placed the seed in Mary’s womb. [simple_tooltip content=’having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,’]First Peter 1:23[/simple_tooltip] calls God’s Word the “incorruptible seed,” and the Greek word translated seed is spora. This comes from the same root from which we get the word sperm. God’s Word is His seed or sperm. [simple_tooltip content=’The sower sows the word.’](Mark 4:14)[/simple_tooltip]

Gabriel took the Word of God that had been spoken through prophecy about the Messiah and brought it to Mary. Then the Holy Spirit moved upon her as He did over the waters of the earth in [simple_tooltip content=’The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.’]Genesis 1:2[/simple_tooltip]. He took God’s seed and impregnated Mary with it. Therefore, John’s description of this is very accurate. “And the Word was made flesh” [simple_tooltip content=’And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.’](John 1:14)[/simple_tooltip].

A similar process is involved in every miracle we experience. In a very real sense, we must become pregnant with God’s Word. The Word must be received into our hearts and nurtured over a period of time before there is actual manifestation of the miracle. A woman goes through stages of pregnancy. Likewise, when God’s Word first takes root in our hearts, it’s not always obvious—even to us. Eventually, it begins to show that His Word is working in us. Finally, there’s the birth of what we have believed. This could be anything from growing in faith to becoming more responsible to prospering in our health and finances.

No one but Mary has ever had a virgin birth, but even that birth took a seed to make it happen. You must conceive (receive and believe) God’s Word in your heart to give birth to your dreams in the natural realm. Put His Word in your heart today, and get ready to receive your miracle!
