A Strong Arm

He hath shewed strength with his arm;
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; as he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.”
– Luke 1:51-56 KJV

I love such praise for You, Father. You are a strong arm to lean on. You have scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. After all, no one knows the heart better than You. You have taken the mighty down from their seats, and they are not happy when that happens. You exalt the “low life,” which always seems to get our attention because we love to root for the little guy… the underdog.

You do fill the hungry with good things because You are a good and loving Father… the Good Shepherd who cares for His own. You send the rich away empty handed because often they have taken it from the poor in greed, or it’s simply what lengths it takes just to get their attention and remind them You are God.

You are a God who remembers His own people, remembering promises made to His people, and keeping those promises made to the one promised, his seed, and keeping those promises fulfilled abundantly.

Mary has so wisely praised You. She was just a lowly handmaiden, a virgin newly engaged. Despite the fact that we tend to think such exaltation are words from an Holy Ghost inspired bible scholar, it is the heart and mind of that scared little virgin girl now overshadowed by the Holy One. And we are blessed to witness such a mighty miracle by the power of the Almighty. I feel like using Mary’s own words with her saying,

My soul doth magnify the Lord!
Blessed is He who is mighty!

I love who You are, Lord! 🙂
And fall more and more in love with You each day! ❤
