“The Mighty One has done great things for me,” proclaimed Mary. Was she perhaps echoing Psalm 126, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy?” Mary’s psalm of praise, like Hannah’s before her, and that of men and women throughout the ages, overflowed from her personal gratefulness for God’s presence and power. What great things has He done in your life?
And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord 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.”—Luke 1:46-49
Prayer: Mighty One, Lord, God my Savior, You have done great things in my life and in the lives of Your people throughout time. Thank You for revealing Yourself to us. I praise You today with a grateful heart, especially for sending Jesus, in whose name I pray, Amen.
