Today’s Scripture Reading: Mark 1:1a, Luke 1:1-4, John 1:1-18, Matthew 1:1-17, Luke 3:23b-38, Luke 1:5-38
Heavenly Father, there are so many voices in the world and in my head telling me what I should be and how I should think. You are the only voice I want to follow.
Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. —Luke 1:38
Lord, Mary trusted You completely. It would have been easy for her to doubt. I’m sure over the course of her life she was the subject of gossip and criticism but she made a decision to believe You and what You said would come true in her life.
Lord, I want the faith of Mary. No one knows me better than You. You made me. You know what I’m capable of being, You know how my life is going to play out. You are the only one who will never leave me.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me,O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!—Psalm 139:14-19
Lord, may everything You say about me come true!
In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
