For with God nothing will be impossible. Luke 1:37
The past several days I have found myself fixed on the Earthly parents of Jesus. Not only their obedience but their confidence in that time. It means more than before. Though I am not yet sure the full message God would have me glean from this focus.
Joseph though of no blood relation to Jesus, is the vehicle of the promise. In this way Jesus was adopted.
The fact that Joseph accepted the girl with child, unashamedly, after convening with a messenger from God. I’m reminded that they did not yet have the Holy Spirit.
Then the young virgin Mary. After hearing she was to carry the son of God, rejoices.
Both parents ready and willing to carry Jesus with them. Neither asked why or tried to deny God and His will for their lives.
Gracious Heavenly Father, how wonderful You are. I thank You that You are the God of details. Help me rest in Your word with confidence Lord.
