What Was That Angel Thinking?

This morning I am heading out bright and early to my final Bible Study meeting for the season. It is a breakfast and we have a special speaker and special music coming. I am so excited. Going to a meeting of 100 or so ladies is like attending one glorious fashion show on so many levels. These girls are so much fun and each one beautiful inside and out.

As I am scurrying around I am pondering over my devotion this morning. I know that angel showed up and told Mary to not be afraid and fall to pieces with this new mission ahead that GOD has given her to do. But really~ I am thinking to myself as I am putting on my make up. Didn't that angel know that her sweet baby Jesus was the Messiah that was born to die? What stress, anxiety and heartache she must have felt. That baby she would carry and love to pieces~that baby she nursed and loved more than her own life ~  that baby would one day be nailed to an old rugged tree and die for all man's rotten ugly sin. I know that is a run on sentence but I think that thought deserves one.

We are going to have hard days. We are going to face some steep mountains and very low valleys. We just might as well deal with the truth. Yet~ that angel knew her sweet innocent child was also her Saviour. Her Saviour that made it possible to live in all eternity. That baby was her Saviour that would never leave her or forsake her on the darkest of days.

What fear are you facing today? Your Saviour loves you so very much. You can trust Him as your Lord and Saviour for today and all eternity.

Luke 2:10-11King James Version (KJV)

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

You are so right. He never promised an easy life for those that serve Him. In fact He promised we would have trouble . . . and then without missing a beat He told us to BE OF GOOD CHEER AS HE HAD OVERCOME THE WORLD!! It's hard to "be of good cheer" in the middle of a trial. In fact, it can feel down right impossible. But if we truly shake off the fear that the enemy sends us, and just focus on the One who holds us in the palm of His hands . . . WE CAN HAVE TRUE JOY even in the midst of pain. Blessings to you dear friend!
