I Am The LORD’s Servant

“‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May it be to me as you have said.’ Then the angel left her.” ~ Luke 1:38

Mary knew fully well what the consequences could and would be. She knew that it would not be an easy task to tell Joseph that she was six weeks pregnant but look, Joseph, “I’m still a virgin, it wasn’t me, it was the Holy Spirit!” She knew she could be stoned to death for adultery. She knew she would be an outcast at the very least. She knew that there would be finger-pointing and whispering behind her back. She knew it was a huge responsibility that could, in fact, cost her her life.

But she didn’t consider all the hardships or consequences. She focused on one thing: “I am the LORD’s servant…” and that is all that counts, no matter what the consequences. Come storm or calm, rain or sunshine, I am the LORD’s servant, and I will take my responsibility. God has called each one for a specific task, to travel a specific road, to complete a specific work. The question is: are we willing to count the cost and say, “I am the Lord’s servant, may it be to me as You have said.”?

Heavenly Father, remember that we are but dust. Give us the strength and determination to do the job that You have called us to do. Help us to take our responsibility and to remember, “I am the LORD’s servant…” Nothing more or nothing less, we are Your servants, called to a specific task, and You will take care of us and see it through. Thank You, Father, in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
