Vital signs


Read- Luke 1:46-55


After God revealed His plan for Mary to be the virgin mother of Jesus, she responded with an incredible song of praise. She praised Him for His mercy, faithfulness, and power in fulfilling His promise of a Savior.


Mary declared in this song that “From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me.” This was a strong statement of trust in God, because the task assigned to her would bring judgment and shame from almost everyone she knew.


Knowing this would be the case, Mary focused on the blessing of being chosen by God for such an important purpose. She didn’t dwell on the difficulties she might face in society or within her family. She didn’t need to defend herself. Mary chose to trust God. Whatever God has asked you to do, don’t let any potential persecution or judgment of others keep you from obedience. We aren’t called to be comfortable, accepted, or understood. We’re called to make a difference!
