Reading this familiar story these points grabbed my attention.
37 “For no word from God will ever fail.” – Angel
38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.
45 “Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” – Elizabeth filled with the Holy Spirit
Where did Mary get such faith?
Is Elizabeth always filled with the Spirit?
Do angels still come with messages?
This first question had me turn to Isaiah 55 vs 11 “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – declares the Lord
