Today’s meditation is on the Song of Mary. I thought it interesting what she says in her Song as She visits her cousin Elizabeth who is with child of John the Baptist that leaped in her womb at the coming of Mary.
This is Mary’s Song found in the Book of Luke Chapter 1:46-56.
The Song of Mary
46 And Mary said:
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth 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 on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
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 seed forever.”
56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her house.
I believe that her song was prophetic in that it confirms what Jesus came to do.
He is First called The LORD in verse 46, then is called Savior in verse 47. Indeed, Mary was blessed to be chosen to give birth to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is indeed Mighty and Holy. Holy is definitely Gods name. His Mercy is assigned to those that Fear Him from generation to generation (which is a generational blessing). The arm of God is most definitely His Right Hand side signifying His righteousness that He uses judge and to scatter the proud because God will always resist the proud as He always gives grace to the humble (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5). He uses the foolish things to confound the wise and the weaker things to confound the mighty in verse 52.
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
Therefore, young Mary is the chosen vessel to birth our Messiah. She is a young teenager and is the least likely to be chosen for such a great honor to house the Lord in her womb. God be praised. The Lord our God fills those that are hungry for His living Word, our daily bread which is filled with wisdom, knowledge and power whereas those that are rich are sent away because they are not in want. His mercy extends to the children of Israel and to those who are the seed of Father Abraham. He speaks to each one of us from generation to generation to those that abide in Him.
Her Song gives so much praise to God. She is indeed a blessed and highly favored of the Lord and it testifies to the greatness of what He came to do for us. Mary’s song is prophetic. Let us write our own Prophetic songs to the Lord and make it real for us. God is awesome!
I have here a Song to give the Lord praise from Anthony Evans called Glorious. Let us write our prophetic songs of Worship to the Lord and thank Him for all He has done in our lives AMEN! GOD bless you everybody!
