DIG for Friday the 2nd of December…..Mary asked questions, she did not question; there is a difference…..Luke 1 v 34

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?
