Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”
Although these words were spoken to Mary, Mother of Jesus by Elizabeth during a time when Mary had gone to visit Elizabeth and Zacharias they should ring true to us today. Just imagine how confused Mary must have been when the angel told her that she would be the mother of the Messiah. Even in her confusion Mary said “Let it be to me according to your word.” (V.38) Elizabeth was telling Mary that because she had believed what The Lord was telling her she would be blessed. What a lesson we can learn. No matter what our confusing situation may be do we always believe The Word of The Lord? Do we look around and when we see nothing happening with our physical eyes do we begin to doubt?
It is easy to believe for a day or a week but what about when you are waiting months and years for a promise to be fulfilled? That is when we must continue to believe!! Have faith!! Stand!! When we truly know that The Lord has made us a promise or spoken a word to us about our life, remember that we will see the fulfillment and be blessed just as Mary was if we believe!!!
I have a promise, a word for my life so today I am reminding myself to BELIEVE. Have FAITH. STAND on that word. I pray that you will do the same.
