Then Mary said, ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her.
Mary, the young girl of no status, from the village of Nazareth, an utterly insignificant place is singled out. Called, chosen, and overshadowed with God’s Spirit. And her response moves from one of fear to total trust in God’s incredible plan.
Each of us is insignificant…certainly from God’s perspective…and yet any of us can be called, chosen, and overshadowed with God’s Spirit to make a marked difference in this world.
Dear God, fear of the unknown is the main reason I am not able to respond to You. Please give me the faith and the boldness of Mary to say to You “Here I am…” Amen.
