Summary: Sermonette Designed for Tag Team Preaching
In our text we find that Mary tries to question, what could the angel have meant? If you look at the text, you find basically God said, Well done Mary, you are very special in my eyes.
Rather than take God at His Word Mary wanted to analyze it. You know, where did it come from and what do you want from me?
The reality is many things will happen to us that are unexpected.
Why, because we are Favored of God!
Favor comes in more flavors than Baskin Robbins. It tastes like whatever you need it to. You will walk into meetings with special treatment…people will do things for you…situations will work out for you…all because of favor. Turn to your neighbor and say, do me a favor?
But, the disconnect comes when we fail to realize what we have and who called us and just who or should I say whose we are.
See, Mary was getting the inside scoop on who she was…she was being prepared for a miracle. I submit, too many of us act like we work for the CIA and that God has us on a “need to know” basis. It’s ok to wonder why? Just don’t stay there… Tell your neighbor, don’t stay there!
We too may be more interested in what happens to us that we cannot receive what’s said about us. We may be feeling unworthy. But God wants us to know, we have been blessed in advance because of our connection with Him. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, we are above and not beneath, we are the lenders and not the borrowers. But I come to tell us this morning, stop missing your opportunity to receive your miracle. We may be unworthy but Our Daddy wants to use us as a vessel for the impossible. One thing I know about my Father is he will use ordinary people to fulfill His promises. So what is keeping you from your miracle right now? Turn to your neighbor and say Nothing! Because I am in the Favour of God.
