(Adapted from Luke 2:7)
“She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger.”
I wonder if Mary realized those tiny hands that were curled around her fingers were the same hands that had formed mankind? Those little feet were the same feet that had walked on streets of gold and been worshiped by angels. That tiny infant voice had once spoken worlds into existence. *
I wonder if Mary knew that her baby would be delivered in a barn. I wonder if Mary knew that her baby’s Father had prepared this place long before this age and dispensation. I wonder if she knew that she would give birth to the Savior of the world in the most unassuming place on the face of the earth. I wonder if she knew that she would deliver the Prince of Peace who would walk in perfect unity with His Father to a destiny that had already been prepared for Him. I wonder if she realized that she held the Great I AM, the God of her fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the One for whom the prophets foretold hundreds of years before.
On that history-changing night more than 2,000 years ago, Mary delivered her infant son in the presence of Joseph and a few barn animals. The wonder of that moment must have been gloriously set in her heart forever. When Mary kissed her newborn child, she wasn’t just kissing a baby. She was kissing the face of God.

MARY DID YOU KNOW? By Kent And Hannah Cooley
Devotion: I Wonder if Mary Knew
(Adapted from Luke 2:7)
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy had come to make you new?
This child that you delivered will soon deliver you.
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with His hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little baby, you’ve kissed the face of God.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear, and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap; the dumb will speak the praises of the Lamb!
Mary, did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I AM?
