Faith and Obedience

“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son,
and shalt call his name JESUS.
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:
and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever;
and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”
– Luke 1:30-34 KJV

Lord, in this reading abruptly stopping as Mary asked how this would be but before she got her answer, emphasizes the entrance and instruction of the news to Mary, and her answer merely asking a logical question. She believed God, but because she knew it took being with a man to have a baby she asked how. She didn’t laugh as Sarah did. She believed. Your words point out the favor she found in You, and other scripture points to You calling her obedient. Faith and obedience are pleasing to You. ❤
