Bible Text: Luke 1:5-38 |


“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Mary and Joseph’s plan for a room turned into a stable for animals. Their plans changed in the middle of the night when King Herod put a price on Jesus’ head. Elizabeth’s plans for a son came decades later. Mary wasn’t even married when God intervened in her life. Nothing is impossible with God. Times of silence and waiting do not mean God is not listening and active. In His time, God will act. With God, plans don’t just go awry, He turns them, He intervenes in unexpected ways. Trust Him. When we face challenging times may we humbly pray, “Your will be done.”
