Why did God choose the teenager Mary to bring Messiah into the world?

“You’re beautiful with God’s beauty, Beautiful inside and out!” (The Message Luke 1: 28) When the angel Gabriel told her that she, a virgin, would conceive the Son of God, she was utterly overwhelmed. She was a very young, simple peasant girl. In her small village she had no social standing.  Nothing is impossible with God, Gabriel told her.


Lord, I thank You for the wonderful faith You gave to the teenage Mary, who was ready to trust You when all You said to her seemed impossible. Give me the trust in You that Mary had. Prepare me to make the leap of faith that demonstrates that I obey You and will bring honour to You.
