I love this children’s Bible. I especially love the Christmas story in it. It’s simple and beautiful.
. . . The God who flung planets into space and kept them whirling around and around, the God who made the universe with just a word, the one who could do anything at all – was making himself small. And coming down . . . as a baby.
Wait. God was sending a baby to rescue the world?
‘But it’s too wonderful!’ Mary said and felt her heart beating hard. ‘How can it be true?’
‘Is anything too wonderful for God?’ Gabriel asked.
So Mary trusted God more than what her eyes could see. And she believed. . . .
I want to be like Mary. I want to trust God more than what my eyes can see. I want that quiet confidence, like Gabriel, to know that nothing is too wonderful for our God.
And that’s what I wish for you as well – faith far exceeding sight, a heart of awe and wonder that a Baby would come to rescue the world, belief.
