Do you need encouragment?

Mary didn’t know it yet but she needed encouragement. God has a wonderful way of building us up before we need it. At this point in the story, she was clueless what was about to happen. She was engaged to be married but a virgin. God sent a messenger to let her know what an amazing woman she was.

AND, God was with her. She needed to know that. She needed confidence even though she didn’t know it. She would find out soon enough. But first things first. That is God’s way.

So … she would learn more soon. But to get started, God encouraged her. That is his way.

Is it my way? Do I encourage first? May it be so.

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to the Galilean village of Nazareth to a virgin engaged to be married to a man descended from David. His name was Joseph, and the virgin’s name, Mary. Upon entering, Gabriel greeted her: Good morning! You’re beautiful with God’s beauty, Beautiful inside and out! God be with you. Luke 1:26-28
