Annunciation to Virgin MaryActs 16:11-15
Verse 15: When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.
When the Angel of God appeared before Mary and declared to her of God's great plan for her without question she accepted it. In the scripture reading we see in the same manner how Lydia believed and accepted Lord and persuaded her household to believe and accept Lord. In the same manner we need to be prepared to be used by God by putting our faith in Him and living our lives as a servant of the Lord. During all the challenges we face in a culture that has forgotten God, we have been chosen to be a part of God's loving plan and to be the Gospel that is intended for all men and women. When we hear the Word of God don’t just listen take it to our hearts, understand what is being told to us and what is being expected of us, remember to follow faithfully in a manner that is acceptable to the Lord to benefit not just us but also those who are around us.
Lord, we thank you for choosing us to be a part of your great plan, help us to accept and prepare ourselves to act according to the great plan that you have chosen for us Amen.

Remember when God is executing his plan in our lives he also designs and arranges events which continue to unfold until his purpose is revealed.
