Then Mary said, Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said. And the angel left her.

LUKE 1:38

Could you imagine what it was like for this young lady, to have an angel appear to her, and tell her not to be afraid? This was the first challenge. To hear and receive his message, was another?

I would have been quite shocked, and you? Not only shocked by his presence but also by his message!

The angel waited for her answer, “… be it unto me according to the Word”. She accepted the favour of God and welcomed the Word into her heart.

It was through her obedience that she was able to give birth to the most precious gift that the world has ever received. I believe that the Lord must have prepared her for this amazing task by having her raised in a God-fearing family.

You have similar opportunities in your life everyday, where your efforts and welcoming of the Word will have eternal results.

Are you listening? Are you prepared to receive that Word and see the wonderful results?
