Claiming to be a woman of faith can be risky for some and outright scary for others. Declaring that you believe in a Holy God that no one sees and some deny exist can cause a person that is not fully confident, convinced and sold out to drawback and sometimes hesitate to express their full allegiance to. Mary was visited by an angel that told her she would conceive a Holy child, the Savior of the world, her only question was “how could it be since she does not know a man”, once it was confirmed that “nothing is impossible with God”, her response was without hesitation. Understanding the law at that time, she could be ostracized, shunned, abandoned, and potentially killed for being pregnant outside of wedlock. She was willing to take the risk and did not hesitate to believe what was spoken of her, no matter the cost.
What has God spoken to you about your purpose that may seem crazy, outside of your comfort zone and what is accepted as “the norm” yet you believed God and most of all said “yes”? Anytime God had purpose for someone in the bible, it was risky business, it could cost them friends, acceptance, freedom and more just to name a few; however, God proved to be with them every step of the way. Do you believe what has been spoken to you so that the fulfillment of God’s purpose in your life may be manifested through the Father?
