The story of Mary is a beautiful, familiar one. Though she was only a young girl, not mature in her parents or anyone else’s eyes, she was chosen to be blessed to bear my son, nurture him and be his earthly mother. I chose Mary for my purposes and blessed her because of it. Oh, she suffered heart ache beyond imagination, but she was blessed beyond human comprehension to have held her Lord in her arms.
While you do not question the choice of Mary as my vessel for bringing my son into the world, you so often question your own identity in me. While you will not give birth to the savior, is my plan for you any less important? Have I not chosen you for my purposes? Have I not given you the skills and opportunities you have for use in my kingdom? Are you not favored by my purpose for your life?
Favoring you, I AM
