Mary was chosen by God to give birth to the Savior of the world. She was sought out by God because she walked in His ways. For this reason God sent the angel Gabriel to tell her, “hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.” “Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.” “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: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” What an amazing responsibility was put onto the shoulders of Mary. God chose her to bring forth His only Son to this darken world. He was to be a light to this broken generation. Her Son would be no ordinary man but God in the flesh. He is called the “Great I Am”. I am thankful that Mary believed in the words of the angel. Let Her words be written in our hearts, “be it unto me according to thy word.” For when God calls on our names let us listen. Take heed to His counsel and let the Lord have His way in our lives.
Through the Holy Spirit the King of kings was born. “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” It was a miracle of all miracles to have the Son of God be born to a virgin. Mary was chosen and now all the world can be saved if they believe in her Son, Jesus. My heart is joyful in the birth of my King. I honor Him with all my heart. His Name is great and is “called the Son of the Highest”. I believe in You Lord. All blessings and honor to Your Holy Name. Your kingdom is what I look forward to. I was blinded through the things of this world and You gave me sight. You’ve delivered me from a life of pain into a life of great joy. All of my praises are extended out to You. My songs of thanksgiving are raised up to You, my Lord. No one is like You. I cherish this time to sit in Your presence. You reign supreme in my heart. I would be so empty if it wasn’t for your birth. Because You came into the world there is light. There is redemption for sins. We can be forgiven because of Your mercy. You have brought forth the gift of eternal life. Thank You Lord. I am forever grateful for all You’ve done for mankind. I love You.
Luke 1:26-38 (KJV)
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.
