How did the virgin Mary respond to the astonishing message of Gabriel? She knew the message had been sent to her from heaven, from God Himself. She was a godly Jewish virgin. Her faith was firmly in the absolute truth of God’s words to her.
You and I can also live our lives on the certainty of the absolute truth of God’s words today. The Holy Bible is true, all of it. Picking and choosing what we want to believe about God and His word is to doubt God, Himself.
Accepting God’s words will put you on the road of accepting His will for your life.
Accepting God’s words and way for you will mean absolute surrender to Him.
Accepting His words and will is a step of faith, believing Him.
Mary accepted God’s pronouncement and agreed to His will for her. Could she foresee the difficulties and the heartbreak which would occur in her life because she agreed with God? This writer doubts she even considered such possibilities.
Can you foresee the difficulties and the possible heartbreak ahead for you as you yield to God’s will? This writer doubts you can see into the cloudy future.
Even if you do ‘think ahead’ and foresee problems, should that stop you from yielding to God’s will for you? No! Doing God’s will is to trust Him for the strength, the energy and the desire to finish your life doing what He calls you to do.
Accepting God’s will is to believe what He says in the Holy Bible.
Accepting God’s will is to grow in your trust of Him in the circumstances which come your way.
Accepting God’s will is to stand and put on the full armor of God. Stand firm! Stand firm on His truth! (See Ephesians 6:10-18)
Accepting God’s will may have hardships you cannot fathom, but do not let that stop you.
(Amplified) Proverbs 3:5-6 “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all our heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.”
You can have confidant assurance when you accept God’s will!
