And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35 NKJV
Was this answer satisfactory to Mary? Or did it raise more questions in her mind? Did this really explain how it would happen? Well, technically no.
Mary faced a crossroads. Would she continue to question or would she take it in on faith? Mary chose to believe.
Are there things about God you can’t comprehend? That’s where we apply faith and trust God to work it out, just as Mary did.
Lord, thank you for being able to handle our questioning. Thank you for your patience as we decide to have faith and believe you. In Jesus’ precious name we pray Amen.
