“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.” Luke 1:47-55
As Mary and Elizabeth share their good news, they praise the Lord together! We get more insight into Mary’s character as we read the beautiful words of her song. Embedded in the words of her song, are many Old Testament scriptures she’s quoting. These had to have been words she probably studied, memorized, and savored through the years.
The truth that had been engraved in the crevices of her heart, now poured from her mouth in a beautiful song of praise to God.
Luke 6:45 says, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”
Mary used her words to magnify her God!
I heard a pastor say one time that we talk about what’s most important to us. And people can tell a lot about us by what we talk about.
What do we talk about? See, like Mary, we all sing a song. We sing a song with our lives.
What’s the theme of your song?
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
