Amazingly: “Then Mary stated, ‘Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let or not it’s to me based on your phrase’” (Lk 1:38 NKJV). God has a set plan, and He’s all the time working towards it. The difficulty is, we’re solely working with restricted data, so we grow to be impatient and upset when He doesn’t reply our prayers when we predict He ought to, or within the method we predict He ought to.
