My Spirit Rejoices in God My Savior
Read Luke 1:46–55
And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”
Mary’s words are stunning for anyone, let alone a young girl going through such a significant life change. We could stay with her words for weeks, listening to each line and pondering the goodness of God they declare. Let your mind and heart focus on the line that stands out to you. Why does that particular line stand out in this season? What does it show you about God’s goodness?
Share your heart with God about the ways your spirit rejoices in Him.
