"And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord." - Luke 1:45 NASB
Mary was pregnant. She was not yet married. The baby was not the product of her relationship with her betrothed.
That’s the world’s take.
Elizabeth, who now knew first hand what God could do, saw it differently.
"You are blessed, my dear cousin."
We have, out of the mouth of Elizabeth and 9th Beatitude.
Blessed are you when you believe that God will do what He said He would.
Earlier in Luke 1, the angel told Mary,
"For nothing will be impossible with God." - Luke 1:37 NASB
Mary received this massive blessing.
Note-The blessing probably didn’t feel like such a blessing at times. But we step back now and see what a huge privilege it was for her to carry and care for God’s own Son.
Can you believe that God will do what He said He would?
Your Blessed in believing, and you will be blessed, carrying whatever seeming burden comes with the blessing because God is in it.
Thanks for stopping by.
Come back soon.
