The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.” -Luke 1:35
Ever wonder what it was like for Mary when the Holy Spirit came upon her? Did she sense the power of God when it happened? Was there a moment in time when she knew that she was with child before her body told her that she was with child? It reminds me that God is often working in our lives, preparing us, before we sense His presence. And like Mary, the power of the Most High sometimes overshadows us long before we understand what has been birthed in us.
