#78 SON OF THE MOST HIGH
"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming in, he said to her, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you." But she was greatly troubled at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be. And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the SON OF THE MOST HIGH;" Luke 1:26-32

Jesus, You are the SON OF THE MOST HIGH! Mary understood what Gabriel was saying to her. You were not an ordinary child to be born to her - You were the SON OF THE MOST HIGH! You were to be the Son of the One who was of supreme importance! She knew that she had been chosen to be the mother of the SON OF THE MOST HIGH GOD! Oh Jesus, You who reigned with God, as Creator of all, were to be born to a young girl as a baby. This is more than my mind can completely grasp! Your plan is so far above what my mind can understand - and yet so glorious! I have heard it so many times that it can become normal - but this is no normal birth! You, the SON OF THE MOST HIGH, would be born to a young girl who was a virgin. Your ways are higher than I can imagine! Thank You Jesus, the SON OF THE MOST HIGH - for being born as a baby to Mary!!
Worship and praise Jesus today - the SON OF THE MOST HIGH!
(Have you heard the story so many times that it loses its awe and wonder?)
