“For nothing will be impossible with God.” – Luke 1:37 – Gabriel
Gabriel has perspective. He stands in the presence of God all the time. If anyone has perspective, Gabriel does. Has any virgin ever given birth before or since? NO! Is God big enough to send angels and give a child to a virgin? We know the rest of the story.
Mary was hearing the impossible from a source that, as far as we know, she had never encountered before. A heavenly being is talking to her. Look at her response:
“Yes, I am a servant of the Lord; let this happen to me ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD.” – Luke 1:38
Listening to Angels is OK. They stand in the presence of God. “According to your word.”
Mary was talking about Gabriel’s words when she said, “Let this happen to me according to your words.” Mary listened to angels. Don’t chase after angels, but don’t be afraid to pay attention when they speak. Mary did, and it worked for her!
