Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45 NKJV
The Lord’s will is always done. Mary could have denied the message from the Lord, but she had proof in Elizabeth’s pregnancy. Mary could have denied Elizabeth’s pregnancy was a miracle. But Elizabeth knew Mary’s condition before Mary explained it. Mary could have denied she was pregnant, but only for a short time. Her growing middle would betray her denial.
No. Denial wouldn’t work. When the Lord plans something it always come to pass.
After considering all things, Mary believed the angel and Elizabeth.
