Did She Know?


christ_is_born-983303

On Christmas Eve at our wonderful candlelight service, I sang one of my favourite Christmas songs “Mary Did You Know?”.

As I practiced the song and allowed the words to sink deep into my heart, tears were streaming down my cheeks and these thoughts just came to my mind:

A young woman in a very conservative community was visited by God’s angel and was told she would give birth to God’s Son. She didn’t even think of the consequences this might have in her life, relationships, etc but immediately said “yes”.

She could have been abandoned by her family, friends, fiance and be considered an outcast, but that didn’t cross her mind. She just answered “YES” to the treasure of her heart- God.

I wonder if she knew that her baby boy would make her new, would deliver her and all the world, would give sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, life to the dead? I wonder if she knew her baby boy would walk on water, calm a storm, feed thousands, heal the lame, etc? Did she know that her baby boy was with God in the beginning of creation? Did she know that her baby boy would one day rule the nations? Did she know that He would suffer death on a cross and that her pain would be unbearable?

I personally don’t think she knew all this. One thing I know for sure is that she trusted God with all her being and knew that His plans for her life were the best.

A humble, young girl that could have been filled with pride when she heard that she was highly favored and chosen by God to give birth to His Son, yet there was not even a tiny bit of pride in her but great love, humility, loyalty and trust towards her heavenly Father.

How many times have we been asked by God to do something and we have doubts, we question Him, we are hesitant to do it because it requires sacrifice?

How many times do we allow pride to enter in our life when we are chosen to do something for Him?

She is such an excellent example of a woman of God. A woman who belonged 100% to Him. A woman of great faith, humility and trust that obeyed and followed His plans.

Everytime I listen/sing this song I am in tears especially where the lyrics say “when you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God and the sleeping child you’re holding is the Great I AM”

HOW AWESOME!!!!

As we get ready to bid farewell to 2013 and welcome 2014 may our treasure be God in all areas of our life.

Wishing you all a Blessed New Year!!!!

  3. Dear Natasha
    Yes, Mary is a remarkable woman. One thing that stands out to me about her, is the fact that how she blindly trusted God to do the impossible. Her acceptance reminds me of how nothing is impossible for God.
