God's speaks clearly today in Tracy Berta's post at Thirsty for Him. Please pop over and read Tracy's post titled "May I Be Like Mary". I have been blown away and humbled by this post, and it's exactly what I needed to read today. A very clear and simple message, in keeping with what the Lord has been showing me lately in the Bible, about obedience, faith, trust and total reliance on Him. And a clear and simple message about a truly amazing lady!
Christmas is all about the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who came to earth to bear the brunt of our sins, and to cleanse us and make us worthy of our place in Heaven. Today, as you read the words in Tracy's post, put yourself in Mary's shoes and imagine how honoured she felt to be chosen by God to bring Jesus into the world. Of all the young ladies on earth, God chose Mary.
May we honour Mary in return and choose her Son, and listen to His Father - our Father - and COMMIT our way to the Lord, TRUST in Him completely and DO His will without question, so that our RIGHTEOUSNESS (given to us by Him) will shine like the dawn and the JUSTICE of our cause (His cause - life, relationships, the journey towards our Heavenly Home) be as bright as the noonday sun (Psalm 37:5).
