In Luke chapter 1 a similar process takes place…
Verse 28: The angel went to Mary with these reassuring words, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
Being greeted by an unexpected Angel of the Lord and told she was ‘highly favored’ must have been awesome as well as frightening for her.
Verse 29: Mary was greatly troubled at (the Angel’s) words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. Mary was now beyond wonder...she was “troubled” about what this meant.
Verse 31: The Angel explained to Mary what was about to happen, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.” Mary took this in but was left with a nagging question.
Verse: 34: Mary then asks, “How can this be?” Mary can’t begin to comprehend how this can happen since she is a virgin.
Verse 35: The Angel reveals the plan to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you…the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God.” Mary’s question was answered…she BELIEVED WITHOUT SEEING.
Verse 38: Mary’s humble response was, “I am the Lord’s servant…May your word to me be fulfilled.” God’s perfect plan for our salvation begins to unfold. Verse 45:
The Angel affirmed Mary’s total trust with this blessing, “Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” God blesses those who BELIEVE WITHOUT SEEING!
CHALLENGE: Is there a plan that has been put in your heart by our Heavenly Father? If so, you may have troubling questions about it. Ask Him the nagging question, “How can this be?” God will speak comfort and assurance to you about His plan and provide the information you need to…BELIEVE WITHOUT SEEING.
PRAYER: I believe without seeing, I am yours and I am ready to serve. Let it be to me just as you have made known. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
