What If?

What if Mary had second-guessed Gabriel’s mind-blowing news that she had been favored by God to be the mother of His son? Mary asked one question and then said in Luke 1:38 “I am the Lord’s servant. Be it unto me according to your Word.”

We have no record of her stress level going up after the revelation or that she pondered such questions as: What are my parents going to say?  How will Joseph respond? He will never believe what happened. How do I explain it so he doesn’t break the engagement? What if he does when I start showing? And… what will the neighbors think? I can only imagine.

But we do have a record of God taking care of every minute detail. Yes, Joseph did consider breaking the engagement when he found out about the pregnancy, but the angel cleared Mary’s name and shared God’s plan with Joseph.

Whatever God starts, He finishes. If He made a promise, He will fulfill it. We don’t need to troubleshoot for God. Reduce the stress. Let God be God. He has a great track record. Zero losses.
