Accept His Good Plans

38 …Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. ~ Luke 1:38b

Mary accepted the plan of the LORD, come what may. Her only concern was to please her God, and in so doing, she became the recipient of the very first Christmas present.

Make no mistake, Mary needed a savior just like everybody else; even though she was the mother of the Savior, whose name is Immanuel, which means God with us, she still needed saving; she could not save herself. So, it is with each and every one of us that we all need a Savior.

I’m sure this was not the Christmas present Mary had envisioned, thought about, or even considered. Nonetheless, she gracefully accepted her part in God’s eternal plan.

Each and every one of us has a God-given call on our lives. None of us were created without purpose, but all of us were created to follow a plan that God has for our lives. Plans that are for our good and not for evil. But God never forces those plans on us; like Mary, we each have to accept His plan for our lives.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Accept His Good Plans.
