Most importantly! Mother of Jesus! Was NOT visited by God. She was Created for a purpose, but was asked if she would carry Jesus! So very many things could have occurred. ‘ Saying ‘yes’ could mean not only losing Joseph, but the respect of her parents, and suffering the community’s scorn for carrying a child out of wedlock. She could even face death. Mary knew. Mary knew exactly what this could mean to her, but she trusted God would take care of her.
We find ourselves in situations that we could never have imagined! Remember this: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that Love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
The Bible is written for a purpose! Know God! God never changes!!! Childless till her 90’s – Sarah; father of many nations? Abraham, listening to Sarah, began a new ‘culture’ – Islam. Yet, from his loins came: from Keturah, who bore him six more sons – Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shua.
We could share on this for hours! But, we will focus on hearing from God.
I am the good shepherd. I know My own and My own know Me, just as The Father knows Me and I know The Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
