Are you satisfied to live a mediocre life or do you believe there to be more? So many settle and do not think beyond what they see.
Mary listened and thought beyond what she saw–and then there were three
“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age; and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.” St. Luke 1:26-36 KJV
But first she listened and accepted what she heard
Never mind that it was beyond her comprehension; she believed what she could not see, because she trusted her God, and she trusted that the messenger was sent by God–a lie He could not tell.
“And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.” St. Luke 1:38 KJV
“Be it unto me as you have spoken,” she responded. You might say…So BE It!
Now, would you say ‘So BE It’ to a mediocre life?
Because you have a decision to make–the choice is up to you. You can read My Word and declare ‘So BE It’ and take what it says to be your own…
or…not believe it, not receive it, and declare to your mediocre life–‘So BE It’ and it will BE!
The decision is up to you and that is the beginning…
So BE It!

“Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God. Remember then what you received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.” Revelation 3:2-3
