And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord. - Luke 1:45
Two women of faith trust that the Lord can speak in their lives, even as common wisdom says the opposite. The elder, Elizabeth, now knows that she can bear life. The younger, Mary, has consented to a plan of God for which there is no roadmap, no directions for birthing and raising the Messiah. Their trust in God is their only guide to the future.
Let us, in prayer, share both the deep joy and the understandable apprehension of Mary and Elizabeth as God’s grace works in their souls.
