As Pastor Taylor continues our series Wonder Women, we get a closer look at Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Mary just might be one of the most misunderstood women in Scripture. Some religious traditions paint Mary to be something that Scripture never says. She is often idolized and put on a pedestal but the Bible teaches that Mary was no different than you or I. But she was used in an incredible way because she simply chose to say yes when God intervened in her life. In this message, we look at how Mary responded to her “God moment” and 3 lessons that we can learn from her life and faith.



1. God moments often seem impossible.

Luke 1:31-34 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will
name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of
the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor
David. And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never
end!” Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”

Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking,
it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”

2. When God moments happen, just say yes.

Luke 1:38 Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you
have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.

Mark 5:36 – But Jesus overheard 5:36 Or ignothem and said to Jairus,
“Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”

3.. Your God moment will open the door for God’s best in your life.

Luke 1:42,45 Elizabeth gave a glad cry and exclaimed to Mary, “God has
blessed you above all women, and your child is blessed. You are
blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said.”

How to cultivate God moments

1. Stay connected to God.
2. Stay connected to the people that encourage you
3. Stay connected to the bigger picture.
