"And blessed (happy, to be envied) is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of the things that were spoken to her from the Lord." Luke 1:45 (AMP)

I can only imagine the mixed emotions Mary must have experienced when the Angel Gabriel approached her with the promise of a child. Not just any child, but the Son of God; the promised seed that would change the course of history. Mary was chosen to give birth to the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, and the Savior of mankind. God handpicked Mary to partner with Him in this great feat. He needed someone that was not only pure in body and spirit but also in faith.  What an honor!

The promised child God spoke to Mary concerning was an extenuation of the promise He had given Abram. That promise carried over until it reached the point of fulfillment. God had to perform miracles along the way to that promise, including opening wombs that were barren.

Our Father is a God of His word. If He said it, He will surely bring it to pass. If God can open closed wombs and overshadow a virgin by the power of His Holy Spirit to cause her to conceive, he can indeed keep His promise to us as His children.

No longer cry out in desperation wondering if God has forgotten about you and the promises He has made. No, from this point forward let Mary’s response be your response; be it unto me Lord according to your Word.  We can be assured that God possesses the power to perform what He has promised.

Father, it is with great expectation that we await the fulfillment of the promises you have given us. We understand that you have proven yourself time and time again in the Holy Scriptures. We hold on to your Word as valued treasure today, assured that you will perform with your hands what you have already spoken with your mouth.  In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
