DECEMBER 22, 2013 – A MOMENT WITH GOD – Do you think that Mary realized that those few moments with God were going to strengthen her for the weeks, months, and years ahead – for the rest of her life? I truly believe that Mary went back to that ‘moment with God’ time and time again, as she faced rejection and persecution, time and time again, throughout her life. Mary obeying God and being available to His plan and His purpose forever changed her. Imagine the whispers that she faced; not just for months but years. God knew what was ahead of Mary’s obedience and God gave her a moment that she would never forget! A moment with God will forever strengthen you – Don’t miss out on the moment that He has just for you! Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.(NKJ) Also read Luke 2:19 and 2:51.
