Lessons we can learn from Mary
Daily Reading -Luke 1:26-33
Daily Devo –
The story of Mary is one of hope and encouragement.
In the Book of Luke, we see that the Angel Gabriel says to Mary “Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”
The Angel said that Mary is highly favoured.
Can you imagine what Mary would be feeling at the moment do you think that she might be thinking “Me highly favoured one, I am not sure, is he speaking to me?” She might have looked around to see if anyone was behind her.
She was probably afraid because the Angel said in Luke 1:30 “Do not be afraid Mary, for you have found favour with God.
We are the daughters of the most high and he sees us and says about this about us that we are fearfully and wonderful made and he is pleased with us. God has an amazing plan and future for our lives, during this Christmas season speak these words over you.
We also know that Mary was obedient to God, she may have been afraid but she trusted God. Mary had faith. She stayed on the journey.
This Christmas time spend some time with God, get away from all the distraction and thank Him for what he is doing in your life.
Trust him lean in to what he is saying to you in this season. What is God trusting you with, what is he asking you to do.
