A Daily Devotion for Monday, November 23

Updated: Nov 24, 2020


Luke 1: 46-55


verses 59-52: His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.

These verses remind me of all of the power of God. God can do anything, and He has done many awesome and wonderful things. Mary was part of the greatest miracle since creation. I can’t comprehend how she even tolerated receiving this miraculous gift.

For some reason, though, this leads me to thinking of little things God has done, for no reason except He loves us. For example, joy. Joy is a precious gift from God. Joy is 100% positive, 100% free of cost, and uses up no energy to experience. This picture is our big girl, Holly. Her sister Stella lives at our place, too. We are constantly smiling at these two. God gives us these healing, positive emotions. He gave them to us for free. He has done many epic and enormous things for His people. His gift of the birth of Jesus tops them all. Joy is a small matter, in the scheme of things. But I am so thankful to God for it. Amen

Becky, transforming

I am thinking about Becky's comments on Luke1:46-49. Mary was filled with joy. We must recognize our joys and give God thanks. These joys may be just little things like a brilliant sunrise or the call of a bird. The importance is in recognizing these things and giving God thanks.

Luke 1:46-55 Mary has one of the most well-known stories in the Bible. However, I never thought of her as an example. Whenever I read this story, I think of my Father in Law, Will. He was a long-term caregiver for his wife who had Alzheimer’s. When she died, he was, of course, lost. He moved to Goffstown to be closer to us. He lived independently, and could walk to all the things he needed, but I didn’t feel as if he were really living, just moving through life without her. One December after church, he told me he had heard the minister say somethings that would change his outlook. It was the story of Mary. Now, of cours…

Thanks, Barb. It was a bit of a risk, but I though this group would get where I'm coming from.

Tom, great writing. You hit the nail on the head with your take on a modern day Mary.
