We are in rebellion to God…until he takes our heart of stone and makes it his. Then, our soul longs to praise him and magnify his name! This is what Mary does in the face of disapproval from society, from her family, and from her betrothed. Why? Is her faith just that much greater than the rest of us? Or is it because of God’s faithfulness to Mary? If it’s the former we are going to be stuck, because who among us would have the extraordinary faith of Mary? But if the latter, we can trust God is faithful to his people…and to you.
