Luke 1:46-47 – My Soul Glorifies the Lord

Context: Mary has been told by an angel that she will be the Messiah’s mother.  This promise has been confirmed by her trip to visit her relative Elizabeth – John the Baptist’s mother.  Her words as she begins her song are similar to Zechariah’s words at the beginning of his song later in this chapter.

Luke 1:46-47 – And Mary said:
”My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior…”

Observations:

–       Mary’s soul

  • Glorified God

–       Mary’s Spirit

  • Rejoiced in God

Application: I want to bring God glory from the inside out.  My outward expressions of praise must be an overflow of my soul and Spirit.

Are you focusing on God today?  Meditate on Him and posture yourself with a heart that glorifies and rejoices in God.
