I want to share with you a quote I read recently.
The author, Joanna Weaver was discussing Mary’s ability to say yes to God.
Her willingness to say yes, despite the the unbelievable nature of her call.
“When God comes to us, when He asks us to join His great plan of salvation and redemption,
we may doubt and we may question.
But, if we persist in unbelief, we will miss the blessing.”
Sometimes when we hear God calling us to something our first reactions may be unbelief and fear.
I’m sure that even Mary found it hard to believe that an angel was standing before her asking her to be the mother of God :).
But, we cannot stay in our fear and unbelief.
We have to say “yes”.
And with that “yes” we affirm our belief in God’s amazing ability to do great things in us.
