“But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.” Luke 2:19
From the time the angel first appeared to Mary, this young woman heard and saw many things that she probably did not understand. But rather than express doubt, she allowed God to lead her, and she meditated on these things in her heart, allowing the Lord to reveal everying in His time.
Like Mary, we all face situations that we don’t understand, and often we would really like God to give us more details about what the future holds! But we need to emulate Mary’s attitude, to take the information we have been given, and hide it in our hearts.
God will bring understanding and revelation at the right time. What matters is that we are willing to follow wherever He leads us.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the situations in my life that I don’t really understand, because they give me the opportunity to develop my faith in You. I trust that You will lead me safely into all that You have planned for my life.
