All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’) ~ Isaiah 7:14 (NLT)

Imagine it’s over two thousand years ago, you are Mary, you’re engaged to be married, when you are told by an angel that you are pregnant and going to give birth to a son.

I would imagine Mary would have been shocked and astounded by what the angel told her, but did she object and question God? No, she did not!

How often do we question God about things that have happened, or things that haven’t happened, many of which are not nearly as immense as being asked to give birth to the Son of God! If Mary, a young, unmarried woman can accept God’s will without questioning or doubting it was the right thing to do, why should we ever doubt anything God asks us to do!

So if God has been talking to you and wants you to do something which so far you’ve refused to do, why not take that step this Christmas, just as Mary did, and do God’s will.
