You Believed

Scripture:

“For nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37 NLT)

Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant, and I am willing to accept whatever he wants. May everything you have said come true.” And then the angel left. (Luke 1:38 NLT)

“You are blessed, because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.” (Luke 1:45 NLT)

These three verses really hit me this morning with the simplicity of God-pleasing faith.

The angel Gabriel had appeared to Zechariah in the Jerusalem Temple, announcing the coming birth of John the Baptist. Now, nearly six months later, he visited Mary in Nazareth to invite her to be the mother of God’s Son. When she asked how this could happen, Gabriel told Mary, “Nothing is impossible with God.”

Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant, and I’m willing to accept whatever he wants.” A few days later, her cousin Elizabeth said to her, “You are blessed, because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”

Faith is not rocket science. It’s as simple as knowing that nothing is impossible with God, being willing to believe and accept whatever he wants, and then receiving the blessing that comes by simply believing God will do what he says.

Prayer:

Father, I am your son and your servant. I am willing to accept your will and purpose for my life. May it be unto me just as you intend it to be and when you intend it to be. I do believe nothing is impossible to you and I believe you will do what you say. Amen.
