The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:35-38 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, surrendering to Your will sounds noble—until the cost is considered. Mary was willing to endure scorn and rejection to see Your purpose accomplished in her life. Help me to be willing to surrender to Your will and purpose regardless of what it may cost or what anyone may think. Your acceptance is all that matters in the end. Therefore, be it to me as You say—no exceptions or conditions. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
