Read Luke 1:26-33

John’s mother was the cousin of Mary (the mother of Jesus). Today we find out that about 6 months later – Mary is approached by an angel and she is told that she is pregnant. Great news, but she is a virgin.


Pray that you can see the plan behind what God is doing in your life. Mary was greatly blessed by this news of carrying Jesus, but it would totally upend her life because people wouldn’t get it. God does stuff like this in our lives routinely – blessings that bring about difficulty (a new job opportunity, a breakup, job loss/gain) – pray that you can see God’s design in the midst of the upheaval it often brings.


Find a friend to talk to about what your word is. Get it out and just verbalize it to someone – you don’t need to fix it, just get it out.
