What is faith?

In Day Six of Today in a Manger, we look at the teenage Mary’s amazing faith. She has just been told by the angel Gabriel that she, a virgin,  is going to become pregnant with the Son of God. Faith is trusting God when nothing else makes sense – a death in the family, a terrible illness, a job loss, an unexpected pregnancy.


Heavenly Father, give me faith to trust You when everything else seems to have gone wrong in my life. I do not understand why everything happens, but I know that You do. Take up Your abode in me and free me of uncertainty, anger, sadness, and unbelief. Make me like Mary, ready to serve You. Let it be with me just as You say.
