When the inevitable uncertainty and fear arise in your life, where do you turn? Who do you put your trust in? When Mary was faced with impossible odds, she trusted in the Lord! We should strive to trust in the Lord and embrace His plans for us—no matter how impossible they may seem! Mary embraced her role as the maidservant of the Lord—you should embrace your role in God’s Kingdom too!
When Mary had initial doubts, Gabriel comforted her by saying the following: “…Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. For no word from God will ever fail!” (Luke 1:36-37, NIV). Gabriel made it clear, God’s plans always work out—they never fail!
