The Lowly of Lowlies

“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.”
– Luke 1:46-50 KJV

How exciting to read (and experience with her) Mary praising You with such magnification and joy, with such mindful praise. Counting her blessings and naming them one by one. 🙂 ❤ You have regarded the low estates as You even gave Jesus a life of lowly estate. How profound You have made the word humility. To be humble is to completely defined, yet how mighty You truly are, as is the mighty love and obedience of Your Son. Holy is Your name! Your mercy is surely on those that fear You. Thank You for humility, strength, for holiness, and Your mercy.

It seems so odd to break this devotion off in the middle of praise, in the middle of Mary’s prayer and praise to You. I’m so enjoying hearing her praise when her faith had no doubt, and her wisdom simply asked how it would happen. She has not laughed or doubted as others. She believed enough to ask how You were going to make that possible because she knew the logic of how the body worked, and the law of Your own words regarding purity. She knew You would not violate Your word, nor ask her to. Once You answered her, she simply continued to believe and praise Your Holy name.

So in faith with no question on what You do is Your plan for me, even in writing a devotion that You designed in someone else’s heart and mind, and then led me to do, I choose to do to continue to trust You even in what seems like an interruption to her praise for You. You are mighty and great, and have perfect knowledge in emphasizing whatever You will. It definitely emphasizes that You are God, and that we all are of low estate in regard to Your mightiness. How great and merciful You are to teach us such holiness, mercy, and love! It takes such love to pause Your own praise to teach us of who You truly are… The Lowly of Lowlies. I love You God ! ❤
