Can you imagine the surprise that Mary had when the Angel of the Lord appeared to her and made the announcement that she was going to give birth to the Christ Child? This was the fondest dream of every Jewish girl, but it was still a surprise.
“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The Angel answered, “For nothing is impossible with God.”
It’s so easy to forget that God can do anything. And He doesn’t usually tell us of His plans for us. He just surprises us with good things. So, if you are struggling this Christmas with what feels like an impossible situation remember how God surprised Mary. He hasn’t forgotten you He is just getting you ready, like Mary, for His blessings and His direction.
SURPRISE, GOD HAS NOT CHANGED!
