To agree means to accept, consent, and be in harmony. So when we are agreeing with God we need to accept, consent, and be in harmony with God.
Agree With WHO God Said You Are
“God is never unsure about the outcome.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
God knows the end from the beginning, and so when God speaks something, we can trust that He knows best. God will often speak things that don’t appear accurate in the natural, but are yet to come.
The Angel of the Lord spoke to Mary and told her that
- You are favored.
- The Lord is with you.
- You are Blessed among women.
Agree With WHAT God Said You Will Do
God wanted to use Mary as a vessel to bring forth the solution to humanity’s greatest problem.
In verse 30, we see the angel of the Lord speaking two things that Mary will do:
- You will conceive
- You will bring forth a son
And the Angel of the Lord spoke 5 things that her son, Jesus, would do:
- He will be great.
- He will be called the Son of the Most High
- He will be given the throne of David.
- He will reign over the house of Jacob forever.
- His kingdom will never end.
Agree With What God Will Do Through Others
Mary’s cousin Elizabeth, who was called barren, was now pregnant. This wasn’t an opportunity for comparison and competition. Rather, this news acted as proof and encouragement for Mary that if God could do it for her cousin then He could definitely do it through her. Our responsibility is to rejoice with what God is doing through others.
“Sometimes it’s easier to weep with people than rejoice with people.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Nothing’s Impossible With God
In verse 38, the inference is nothing is impossible because of a lack of power.
“God will never be accused of lacking enough power to bring forth what He said.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Luke 1:38b – May everything You have said about me come true.
