Timing and Plans Confirmed
God graciously confirmed His plans and His timing to both Zachariah and Mary. An angel showing up in the temple could have been a powerful and private confirmation to Zachariah that the messenger brought a telegram from God Almighty, but Zachariah had years of crusty unbelief to hinder his reception. So, being mute until he held the promise was his additional confirmation and was both public and humbling. When Mary asked for confirmation, several things happened. She was told she would undergo a physical experience of the Holy Spirit overshadowing her to conceive. She was given a word of knowledge that her older, barren cousin, Elizabeth, was six months pregnant! Then Gabriel reassured her with the proclamation: “For with God nothing will be impossible.” After that, Mary arrived at Elizabeth’s door and she became a second witness: “When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! “But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? “Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Mary’s call was confirmed even more when her bethrothed, Joseph, was convinced in a dream that his wife-to-be would indeed experience a “virgin birth” and bring forth Jesus, the Savior of the world. —Kathy
