I know some of you started off with todays reading in Youth Church on Sunday, but I want to add a couple of changes, and extra challenges today. We have gone over this passage a lot in youth group with our focus on Mary, so I want to challenge you to go deeper.
How many times have your plans come in conflict with what God wants you to do? It might be something really big, like where to go to university, or it might be things really small, like whether to spend your money on something good or something pointless.
I can be good to ask God what He thinks even about the small things, because if we can trust Him and follow Him in the small things, it will be easier to trust and follow Him in the big things too. Mary was able to trust Him in this big thing because she had trusted Him in the small for most of her life. And that’s a place I believe God wants us all to be and where I really desire to be.
God is saying, ‘Do not be afraid’. It’s His plans, He’s with you. He was with Mary, and He’ll be with you. Today, give Him your plans (however big or small) in prayer, and trust Him with them.
