Mary was very accepting of God’s prophecy through the Angel Gabriel. She readily agreed and was verbal in her agreement. Remember verse 37 (the pre-ceding verse) Angel Gabriel said that nothing was impossible with God – giving Elizabeth’s example of how awesome God is at performing His word. Mary quickly latched on to the word and declared “be it to me as you have spoken” God’s words are potent- full of life and power. Whether He has spoken to you or through another- His Word is out there and He will perform all that He has said, nevertheless is your stance that of belief or disbelief? Are you saying to God ‘be it unto me as you have said” or you are just letting things be?- sort of floating along.
Today I challenge you to take the stance of Belief- be VERBALLY agreeable with God’s word. Be like Mary and declare to God your readiness to be all that He has called you to be. I will continue on how we can change our stance in 2016 over the next weeks.
