“He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High…” When Mary heard these words, the fuzziness of her understanding began to clear. The pieces of the puzzle were coming together. This wouldn’t just be a baby or even just the promised Messiah. This was Son of God. In essence, this was GOD trading the majesty of Heaven for the mess of our world. Hope was coming down.
When we grasp the powerful reality that Hope came down, we begin to see how loved we really are. God so loved us that He gave, but also, that He came. Let the power of hope affect great change in your life today. Don’t live ignorantly to the fact that you DO have hope. He saw you. He loved you. He came to you. Now, choose to live with and in that hope.
