"But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.'" ESV
Gabriel's visit to Mary was just as surprising and troubling to her as it would have been had he visited you or me. He told her she would be giving birth to the Savior of the world.
Heavenly Father, help us to always remember that You speak to us in many ways, at the least expected moments, and with astounding messages. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
