'For the Mighty One has done great things for me!'
Luke 1:46-47, 49 NAS
And Mary said:
“My soul exalts the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name!”
I love Mary's words here, words she says right after receiving encouragement from her relative Elizabeth. Her words remind me that my “soul” should be exalting “the Lord”—that “my spirit” also has reason to be rejoicing “in God my Savior” (everyday!). Brothers and sisters in Christ, each and every one of us has reason to always “exalt the Lord” and always rejoice “in God”... “For the Mighty One has done great things for (us!); And holy is His name!” Let's take a look...
Our God is in CONTROL—He makes “all things happen just as HE decided long ago” (Ephesians 1:11)
Our God LOVES us! (Ephesians 1:4)
Our God CHOSE us! (Ephesians 1:11)
Our God sent His SON for us! (John 3:16)
Our God “PURCHASED our freedom through the blood of His Son!” (Ephesians 1:7)
Our God SAVED us through faith in Christ! (Ephesians 1:12-13)
Our God has FORGIVEN us! (Ephesians 1:7)
Our God has IDENTIFIED us “as His own by giving (us) the Holy Spirit!” (Ephesians 1:13)
Our God made us NEW CREATIONS! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Our God gives us Christ's PEACE! (John 14:27, 16;33)
Our God gives us His COMFORT! (2 Corinthians 1:3)
Our God gives us Christ's STRENGTH to do and to endure! (Phil. 4:13)
Our God makes us RICH! (Romans 10:12)
Our God gives us a spectacular INHERITANCE! (Ephesians 1:11)
Our God has everlasting bodies for us...and an everlasting home! (2 Cor. 5:1, John 14:1-3)
Our God has GUARANTEED all He has promised—What assurance and hope we have! (Ephesians 1:14)
Heavenly Father, may we Believers be compelled to rejoice and to say today...“My soul exalts the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For the Mighty One has done great things for me; And holy is His name!”
