Inspired by. . . Mary

 

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:

and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David:
And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,

and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:

therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age:

and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
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 1:26-38

Wow! I've probably read this scripture 100 times and I still can't get over Mary's response to the angel. "Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word."

Admittedly, just the thought of having a child is terrifying to me. I am wholly inadequate to such a task.

But this was no ordinary child. No ordinary messenger.

I wonder if it was the last words the angel spoke that gave Mary the hope and faith she needed to answer as she did?

"For with God nothing shall be impossible."

Perhaps we can have the same hope and faith today. His words, His promises are not just for Mary. They are for each and every one of us.

 

With expectation,
