Thoughts on Today’s Verse – Luke 1-26-28
Wow! Such a familiar sentence packed with emotion. An angel comes to Nazareth to visit and speak with a young woman engaged to be married. Before the history shattering news is announced, she is given one key reminder that will be truer than she could imagine, “The Lord is with you.”
My request, O God, I’ve sung many times: “Be with me Lord, I cannot live without Thee. I cannot bear, to take one step alone.” Father, I need your abiding presence to face the challenges of life. As you have upheld your children through the ages, I am thankful to greet each day knowing that I will not face it alone. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
