Believing is Seeing

Believing is Seeing

Mary knew about believing the Lord’s promises. For nine months before Jesus’ birth, she trusted God to sort out all of the details surrounding Gabriel’s announcement. She traveled to see Zechariah and Elizabeth, she told Joseph and her parents what the angel had said. She watched how they responded even as she felt the signs of new life take shape within her. With each breath she trusted God, she saw His faithfulness, and she placed her trust in Him. His promises to her proved true.

Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!—Luke 1:45

Prayer: Lord, may we, like Mary, believe that You will fulfill Your promises to us. As we gaze upon Jesus, may we treasure Your Son and Your Word in our hearts. May we move into the future in faith and see You at work. In the name of Jesus, in whom all of Your promises are true, we pray, amen.
