Luke 1:46–56 (ESV)

Mary’s Song of Praise: The Magnificat

46 And Mary said, 

“My soul magnifies the Lord, 

47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 

48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. 

For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; 

49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, 

and holy is his name. 

50 And his mercy is for those who fear him 

from generation to generation. 

51 He has shown strength with his arm; 

he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; 

52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones 

and exalted those of humble estate; 

53 he has filled the hungry with good things, 

and the rich he has sent away empty. 

54 He has helped his servant Israel, 

in remembrance of his mercy, 

55 as he spoke to our fathers, 

to Abraham and to his offspring forever.” 

56 And Mary remained with her about three months and returned to her home.

 

The Lord delivers His people amid suffering and disappointment. Today, no matter what troubles assail you, trust in the Lord as your deliverer, and commend all cares to Him in prayer. Rejoice in His surpassing mercy through the Holy Child, who delivers the generations from sin and sorrow. 

 

I pray: Our world is really chaotic and rebelling against God.  Hatred and violence is around every corner.  Not just in America, but all over the world.  We could be at the brink of World War III.  If there is ever a time we need Jesus, it is now.  Lord, help us to be a Gospel light and to point the world to you and your love.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
