Luke 1:45 ~ The Amplified Bible
And blessed (happy, to be envied) is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of the things that were spoken to her from the Lord. And Mary said, My soul magnifies and extols the Lord, And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
This verse of Scripture stands out to me as a hallmark of trust and hope. Mary was a young woman who had just encountered the Amighty God and His plan for her life. Have you ever thought about what she might have felt after the angel told her she would be the Mother of the Savior of the world? She was human, she must have had fear, questions, doubt, hope and excitement. I can only imagine it took a few days to process what she heard. She overcame any fear and obviously trusted her life to Jehovah God. With this call and direction for life she found great joy. She was able to focus and trust Him, rejoicing and magnifying her God! When God speaks to us, let us follow Mary's example. Let us rejoice and trust knowing our God is faithful.
