And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For nothing will be impossible with God.” And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
What in your life seems impossible today? Did you know that nothing is impossible with God? Yes, we “know” that from a cerebral standpoint, but do we “know” it in our hearts. Do we take stock in it, stand on it, and believe it “even when” we don’t see results?
Can you say, as Mary did after hearing this impossible news, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word”? Let it be … these words express a deep truth in Mary’s heart that we all need to grasp: Even though it’s impossible, I choose to believe because of God. There is no need for any other reasoning, fretting, or explaining. God … just God … my God.
Lord most holy, I praise You today for the reality of Your love and grace. I praise You for the reality of Your faithfulness and Your nature which is to embody truth and righteousness. Thank You for showing me Your power and the depth of Your love by making the impossible possible when You see fit. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Delighting In His Presence …
