Mary would have had a mind swirling with questions after hearing all that Gabriel told her. Many of those questions were unanswered. Yes she would carry and bear the son of God – which was truly amazing. But what about other people? What would she say? How would all the complexity be worked out?
The trust of this young teen is heart stirring. I am God’s servant, so I trust Him. Actually, that is true for us too. We don’t know how the future will be worked out, but we do know who is in charge. And as Mary realised, God’s in-charge-ness is incredibly gracious and faithful. That is, He can be trusted.
