And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,
and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”
And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
Pondering Mary’s words as she magnifies the LORD. Father, I pray I am able to humble myself as sweet Mary did at such a moment as this. Power could have been hers. To be worshiped could have been hers. But she accepts the beautiful pregnancy of having Your Son being born through her and she does this with such a humble spirit. Praise You, Father, for choosing Mary. Praising Mary for being able to accept such a wondrous privilege. I thank You, Father, for this time with You in Your Word. In the Name of Your Only Son, I pray. Amen.
