For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. (Luke 1:37-38, KJV)
When Gabriel appeared to Mary she was startled – an appropriate response I think! He tells her not to be afraid, and that she will bring forth a son and call him Jesus. I cannot even begin to imagine the questions that would have flooded her mind. She answers the angel with a simple, “be it unto me according to thy word”. If an angel appeared to me to inform me that I would become pregnant by the Holy Spirit, I can’t say that I would have the same reaction. To have the faith that Mary had to accept his words as true is unimaginable!
Sometimes you may feel that God is pushing you in a certain direction but it is hard for you to understand or believe how it could ever be possible. Remember that with God all things are possible!
Prayer: Lord, help us to remember that through You, all things are possible. Thank you for working in our lives even when we don’t see what is happening. In Jesus name, amen.
