Happy Times (4)

God sent His angel, Gabriel, to visit a Jewish woman from Nazareth. Her name was Mary. Gabriel told Mary she would become pregnant and give birth to God’s Son.

I imagine Mary was very shocked to receive that news. She could have been upset and complained about all the problems she might face in the future. But instead, Mary was happy! Mary said (verses 46b-47a), “I praise the Lord with all my heart. I am very happy because God is my Savior.”

Many people look at the opportunities God gives them and complain about being uncomfortable or facing new situations. But Mary was thankful that God had chosen her to be the mother of His Son. She thought that God was blessing her, not giving her a problem.

Be happy today when God gives you blessings and new ways to serve Him!
