MT 1:18-24

The conception of Jesus was quite “out of the blue” to Mary and everyone else around her. Despite this miracle being sprung on her at the last minute. Mary replied to the angel of the Lord: ” Be it done unto me according to Your Word.” Mary was willing to do anything the Lord put in front of her.

On the other hand, Joseph was a bit skeptical of the whole thing and decided to divorce her quietly. Soon, he was told in a dream that Mary had conceived through the Holy Spirit and that he should take Mary into his home without being afraid. He obeyed this dream.
Sometimes God throws challenges our way, but if we endure them with the mindset that we are fulfilling God’s will, everything will work out in the end.
