According To Thy Word

“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 1:35-38 KJV

This morning’s whispers from You, Lord, are pretty cool, and so personal. You told Mary that her cousin Elisabeth was pregnant before anyone else did, and before Mary went to see Elisabeth. You told her it was a son before there was such thing as an ultrasound. You told her that Elisabeth was 6 months along in her pregnancy. You reminded her of Elisabeth being of old age and called Barren (not that she was any longer! 🙂 ). You pointed out to Mary these things (and how much more in those words only You and Mary know) in telling her/answering her in how it was possible for her own self to have a child without knowing a man yet.

No wonder she believed the angel that said with God nothing shall be impossible. No wonder she had no doubts in what You could do for her, or through her with being pregnant with the Son of God. No wonder she believed everything according to Thy word. I know we think of Mary as just a humble spirit, but it’s no wonder that she also had excitement in her spirit. It made her no less humble.

May we be obedient in believing that nothing with You shall be impossible. May we humbly accept Your will… the Lord of our lives. May we trust You with what we don’t understand, even when You speak so openly clear with us. Thank You for being willing to speak clearly and patiently with us. Thank You for sending Your Spirit, Your angels, and all things that You know would encourage us to believe.

Thank You for being the wonderful God that You always are! Thank You for sending us Your Son. Thank You for allowing the world to know Him as a tender and precious baby. Thank You for allowing us to celebrate with You… the pregnancy announcement… and the journey of waiting for His arrival… the great anticipation You allow us to experience with You… in allowing us to read Your word. And to join in the celebration of His arrival all these years later… and every joyful year at Christmas.

Congratulations, Lord, on the arrival of Your Son!
He’s so absolutely and magnificently wonderful!
Thank You for allowing me to love Him too! 🙂 ❤
And You! ❤ 🙂
