I’ve heard stories, seen movies, and witnessed some deep situations, situations where people acted rashly without thinking or considering the results of some of their actions and decisions.
Then statements like, “I wish I knew!”, “I should have waited a while longer.”, and “How didn’t I see this coming?” follow in rapid succession.
“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 (NKJV)
Though the Bible didn’t record happenings in the life of Mary before she was visited by Angel Gabriel, we know she didn’t know what her future held. Little did she know the Messiah of the world would come through her.
However, there was one thing she knew!
Mary knew before time to be a woman of virtue who preserved herself with absolute consciousness that she was meant for someone or something special. The Lord had her singled out to bring forth His son and I’m sure she had to be a special daughter.
 And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored [one], the Lord [is] with you; blessed [are] you among women!”
 But when she saw [him], she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.
Luke 1:28-29 (NKJV)
As soon as Mary heard the prophecy and declarations from Angel Gabriel, she asked the questions she could, and then she obeyed. Oh! Think about the magic that obedience begat in Mary’s life.
