Mary Did You Know?

From Advent book-Eastern Hills Wesleyan Church
Mary Did You Know?
Mary, did you know, that your baby boy will one day walk on water?  Did you know, that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?  Did you know, that your baby boy has come to make you new?  This child that you've delivered will soon deliver you.
Luke 1:30-35 "But the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.  You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be calld the Son of the Most High.  The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, His kingdom will never end.' How will this be, Mary asked the angel, since I am a virgin?  The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you."
Wow! How does one's feeble mind comprehend that?  yet if you read on to verse 38, Mary's response was "I am the Lord's servant.  May it be to me as you have said."  Mary did not hesitate, she knew her God and she trusted Him to carry out His plan.  She was willing to risk her reputation and even her life.  Did Mary know that her act of obedience would change the world forever?
God has not called us all to be "Mary's," but He has called us all to be obedient and to trust His leading in our own lives.
Prayer:  Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving us so much that you gave up our only Son for us.  I pray for strength and courage to listen and obey your calling on my life.  may Your name be glorified in heaven and on earth.  Amen.

God commands us to care for the whom much has been given, much will be demanded {see Luke 12:48).  If you have been given much, might you consider donating to Compassion International, click on icon button on right sidebar.  I have aother sweet little girl from Ugandy this time, her name is Florence, and I can't wait to start writing her and praying for her, I know it sounds silly how you decide to pick one of these precious children , but her name has been a family name in my family for five generations.

Blessings, peace, joy and love to you, Michelle
