What happened to our joy? Joy is one of the casualties of our disobedience to God. God was on the move when he sent Gabriel to an ordinary girl named Mary in Nazareth. When she was greeted with God’s grace, Mary wondered aloud what God was going to do. It was greater than anything she ever imagined. When she heard about the possibility of God’s impossible plan for her to be the mother of God’s only Son, Mary surrendered to God’s sovereignty. One of the gifts given to those who surrender to God’s powerful plan is great joy. What if God restored our joy today?
