Friday, November 13th: 1 Chronicles 7-9, Luke 1:21-38 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Chronicles 7-9, Luke 1:21-38

1 Chronicles 9: 2 Now the first to dwell again in their possessions in their cities were Israel, the priests, the Levites, and the temple servants.
Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but this verse stood out to me and highlights the fact that our spiritual health is the most important foundation upon which to build our lives.  If we don't start right, there is nothing to build on.

Luke 1: 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.
Truly we serve a God who can do the seemingly impossible - including resurrecting not only phyiscal bodies but regenerating our hearts.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage passage: 1 Chronicles 10-12; Luke 1:39-56

This stood out for me too:

37 For nothing will be impossible with God.” 38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant[e] of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

Nothing is impossible but some things seem impossible. How can old Elizabeth be pregnant? How can a virgin give birth to the son of God? I still think about how Mary's parents must have felt and Joseph be willing to be a servant of God asks so much but also gives so much in return too.
