Your days of complacency are over. Just when you thought you could settle for where you’re at, God will send a “Peninnah” to shake things up. Who’s Peninnah, you ask?

There are seasons of our lives where God disguises Himself. His hiding is significant and indicative of the value of what’s hidden. Gabriel goes to whisper the world’s greatest secret to Mary.
