Imagine if you were told by an angel that you were going to carry the Saviour of the world in your womb. Who would you tell ? This type of news would be very isolating because it would be hard for people to believe it from a human perspective. But of course we know that nothing is impossible for God - Luke 1:37. God created the whole world and holds it together so it is not beyond Him to cause new life to grow in a woman’s womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. After Mary receives the news about becoming pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit she goes off to visit her cousin Elizabeth who has become pregnant through God’s power also - see 1:36. She goes to see Elizabeth because the angel has also informed her that Elizabeth has also had the seemingly impossible happen to her - becoming pregnant at an old age. God’s plan is operating on many levels. God provides support for Mary in the person of Elizabeth who understands that what has happened to Mary is true. This is God’s gracious provision.
