The more I read the Word of the birth of the Lord Jesus the more amazed I am.
The Lord reveals detail after detail.
We miss much due to a “spirit of familiarity” in relation to the story.
Take some time this week and read the first few chapters of Matthew and Luke.
Listen to what the Lord says to you.
For our time today, think on this...Mary’s reaction to the Word of the Lord through the angel…the angel’s proclamation...Mary’s response…
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 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:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 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.
36 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.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Mary was troubled at what was said in the salutation.
Mary wondered how this thing could be.
The angel explained what would happen to her.
The angel explained what had happened to Elizabeth.
Then the angel proclaimed…
“For with God nothing is impossible.”
We need to remember this Word. Nothing is impossible.
Regardless of situation, circumstance and that which can be seen in the visible, we are in God’s hands.
Nothing is impossible.
Do you believe?
If not, why?
27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
All things possible.
May we respond as Mary…be it unto me according to your word…
The Lord has come.
He is soon to come again.
