What if she hadn’t believed? What if she had told God, “Umm, NO, I don’t think so!” Can you imagine? I mean, look at all the men in the Old Testament that their first reaction was to argue with God that they couldn’t do it–Moses, Jonah, Abraham. She at first was perplexed, being a virgin–I mean not great timing and a little weird for this to happen. But she never ARGUED. At least it isn’t recorded. She went along with it. She believed. She was like, “Okay, let’s do this God.”
What???? Can you imagine? You go girl!
I want to imagine that God can do big things with me if I just believe. Don’t you? And what if we don’t argue about it with God? We go along with His plan, His timing, His ideas. What could He have imagined for each of us?
Can you imagine?
