Today’s Morning Magical:

12/15/18 – You have found favor with God

Luke 1:30-33 –  from the Complete Jewish Bible

30 The angel said to her, “Don’t be afraid, Miryam, for you have found favor with God. 31 Look! You will become pregnant, you will give birth to a Son, and you are to name Him Yeshua. 32 He will be great, He will be called Son of Ha‘Elyon. Adonai, God, will give Him the throne of His forefather David; 33 and He will rule the House of Ya‘akov forever — there will be no end to His Kingdom.”

Here it is from the Concordant Literal New Testament 

30 And the messenger said to her, “Fear not, Miriam, for you found favor with God. 31 And lo! you shall be conceiving and be pregnant and be bringing forth a Son, and you shall be calling His name Jesus. 32 He shall be great, and Son of the Most High shall He be called. And the Lord God shall be giving Him the throne of David, 33 His father, and He shall reign over the House of Jacob for the eons. And of His Kingdom there shall be no consummation.”
