Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. – Luke 1:38 (NLT)
Mary was put in a crazy situation. She was ready to get married to a man, but then she is visited by an angel and told that she was going to have a child. And instead of saying she’d pray about it, or talk to Joseph about it, Mary just simply says, “May everything you have said about me come true”.
What an amazing thing to say. She knew that obeying God would mean that she might lose out on getting married since the baby wasn’t his. Also, think about what her friends and family would probably say when they found out she was expecting a child. They’d probably not be the most excited. I’m sure all these things were running through Mary’s mind. However, she didn’t give voice to them. Instead, she simply said let it come true.
Mary must have had a lot of faith in God. She must have had a solid foundation in the goodness of God and trusted that saying yes to God would mean that she would be taken care of even if her family and friends didn’t stay with her. She stepped out in faith and trusted God and saw great things come to pass in her life.
