READ: Luke 1:26-28 The Message
“Child; this is the first message that I speak to you, just as I spoke to Mary- that you are beautiful with My beauty, inside and out, and I am with you.”
“Yes, yes, I chose Mary. You need to understand Mary was not historically a princess. She was not nobility in her day. Yes, her life blood was descended from David, but Mary was not living life like a queen or princess. She was a simple girl. My Bible story does not tell of great acts of heroism or works that she had done prior to Gabriel speaking to her.”
“Her great act was to believe the truth of the Word spoken to her and to say ‘yes’.”
“Mary was innocent, she was a virgin. Yes, this is true. Mary was virtuous and beautiful, this also is true. What I am highlighting today is that Mary was a child after My own heart, and so are you. You are like Mary in that I see value and beauty in you. You are like Mary in that I have destiny for you. You are somebody too!”
“When I say these words, how does your heart feel? What memories come to mine, either of Christmas past or other? How do you see yourself? Tell Me, express your heart to Me.”
“Yes, I see your past. Yes, I see your present. Still; I love you as My Child. I want to share with you My dreams. My Child, begin to dream again, and let that dream live.”
