We all have questions that we needed answering, I’m sure we have all asked God some difficult questions at time.
This does not mean that we have a lack of faith or that we doubt, we just need to have assurance sometimes.
Mary was like this when she was told she would have a baby and that this baby would be the Messiah, that He would be Jesus (Luke 1 v 31, 32 and 35).).
Mary had a really simple question to ask; she wanted to know how she could become pregnant, as she had never ‘known‘ a man (Luke 1 v 34).
This is of course a blindingly obvious question, a question that needed to be asked.
Mary was told nothing was impossible for God (Luke 1 v 37).
Mary believed this and spoke out her faith, and I believe at that second became pregnant (Luke 1 v 38).
Mary asked God a question, she did not question God, and there is a difference.
She required clarification and when that came she believed what the Lord had said and came into line with it, acting accordingly.
What a great picture of how to be in relationship with God.
If there is something you do not understand as a question, don’t just think that the impossible cannot happen.
There is one other thing you must commit to do when asking a question though.
Once God answers you, there is a need to act accordingly.
Mary believed and said, “Be it unto me according to thy word”; she spoke out her faith and understanding.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your guidance, and thank you that we can ask You questions”.
Luke 1 v 34…..Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
