Mary Couldn’t Contain Her Excitement

December 2, 2015

“When before his birth John leaped in Elizabeth’s womb in recognition that he was in the presence of the woman through whom the Messiah would come, Mary couldn’t contain her excitement.  She magnified Me as the powerful, holy, and merciful God who would have My way in the world I had created, whose plan despite all appearances was on course.  Mary joyfully linked the two parts of My story even as the second part was miraculously unfolding in her body.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 203

Questions for Reflection:
• In the midst of circumstances that still held many unknowns, Mary focused on how God was revealing His faithfulness to His people over the generations.  Are there ties that you can see between past challenges that you’ve faced and current ones troubling you?
• When you remember His involvement in the past, what parts of His character were displayed?
• How might that past experience impact your waiting for Him to reveal Himself in your present challenge or uncertainty?
