Monday, April 4th~~Day 1: Matthew 1
Mary didn’t DO anything for this GREAT work of God to take place, the birth of His son. The Holy Spirit, God Himself DID IT ALL. Mary only needed to be willing to be used by God.
Just as with Mary, it is with us. It is the Holy Spirit moving and working in and through us. Simple put it is God Himself that accomplishes His own amazing plans! We just need to be willing, as Mary was, to allow God to do His ‘thing’. Remember it is HIM and NOT US!!
Phil. 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until (A)the day of Christ Jesus.
Oh, Lord may I always be willing to be used by you! May I always trust that your word is true and that it is you not me that will accomplish your plans. I pray you will always find my heart stayed on you!
Since I just completed the bible in 90 days, reading the family tree of Jesus seemed like a brand new experience. These people truly came alive to me. I saw their heart, God’s heart toward them, His for them and and how it played out.
