Text: Luke 1:26-38

Description: Today’s text reminds us that the Lord’s ways are not our ways (Isaiah 55:8), or, as the Yiddish proverb has it, “Man plans. God laughs.” Either way, we are reminded that the journey of life brings unplanned diversions or stops along the way. Yes, it’s important to plan, but it is just as important to be flexible with those plans, recognizing our own limitations in controlling the present or predicting the future. Think about some of the diversions or stops (good and bad) you’ve experienced in your journey of faith. How has the Lord led you through these times? What have you learned about His love and provision for you? Where has your thinking about Jesus been challenged by your experiences? Share with someone today your story of faith and how the Lord has worked in your life during the “unplanned!”
