The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.Luke 1:35
Our God-Given Purpose
God chooses each one of us for a specific purpose. Mary was to be the mother of His son. Her specific purpose was to bring Jesus into the world. Her purpose did not stop there. She was to care and raise the son of the Most High. She had the beautiful job of being the mother of the king. She took that role very seriously and loved her son dearly. We see this when she knelt at the cross as her beloved son was dying on the cross.
You have a purpose too, dear one! God created you for a reason and has a plan for you just as He did for Mary. Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of us. Plans to prosper us and not to harm us. Plans to give us hope and a future. Jesus is that hope.
A Prayer to Remember
You are my hope. You are my future. May I delight in your plan and purpose for my life. May I always look to you when I become weary and feel as though I do not have a future. Amen.
