Day 340 –
On the 5th Day of Christmas – God has called you Blessed.
Luke 1:42-45 “Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed. Why am I so honored, that the mother of my Lord should visit me? When I heard your greeting, the baby in my womb jumped for joy. You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”
Mary had been visited by an Angel, impregnated by the Holy Spirit, trusted the chance at being ostracized by her betrothed and family. In her possible confusion and fear, Mary ran to see her relative Elizabeth to hopefully be comforted and encouraged in her new found state.
When I do what the Lord has told me to, especially when it sounds a bit crazy, I want to know that at least one person with wisdom agrees with the decision I’ve made. Yet no matter what anyone else says or what I think about the circumstance or the unrest, God has called me blessed.
And He has blessed you too!
He has blessed you because you believed what He said was true. He has blessed you because you believe in His Son and that He is the Lord of Lords, Our Savior, and God.
Psalm 23:4-5 “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.”
God has blessed you, His child, more than you will ever realize on this earth. Our minds cannot even comprehend what God is doing for us.
Whenever you begin to question the path the Lord has you on, remember, He has given you the Promise of His Son, you have trusted in Him, and your cup overflows with blessings just like Mary.
