I can’t even imagine being Mary, can you? Here you are, ready to get married, and probably deep in wedding preparation. And then an angel shows up, and what he tells you is about to change everything.
The angel tells her the news that she was going to give birth to a son and call him Jesus. There’s no way can she have a child. And she asks the angel just that, how can this happen? And the angel explains it to her.
Can you imagine? How crazy that would be? How impossible it would sound? And yet, we see in today’s Bible verse Mary’s response.
For no word from God will ever fail.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. – Luke 1:37-38 (NLT)
Mary believed in God, even when it was impossible.
What do you do when things seem impossible in your life? Do you tend to give up? Google solutions to the problem? What would happen if, like Mary, we just believed God? Would things change if we decided to believe the promises in God’s word over the problems that we face?
Today challenge yourself to look to God’s word for your answers. Yes, Google has some good solutions, but God’s word is truth. It will help you come to the right conclusion every time. Be like Mary and trust God’s word!
