Mary, Mother of Jesus, is the ideal of obedience to God. When she was told by the Angel her conceiving, she answered “Let it be to me according to your word.”
We always remind ourselves, when we are troubled in our life. Let it be to us according to our Lord’s will…
Yet she did more than accepting His will automatically. She decided it after going over doubt, worry and fear. She chose her way to obey her Lord whatever difficult, physically or socially, may occur to her.
We could find her toughness the song of praise, which she raise when she visited Elizabeth, who also conceived the baby, which would grow up to be John the Baptist, in spite of her age.
My soul magnified the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great thing for me,
and holy is his name…
…he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate.
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
This song sounds like she declares the victory of people on her side, the humble estate, which had been given among them the King of kings of the world. Behold, the people of noble class, you owns every material, but nothing spiritual in your hands…so sounds her song.
The true obedience may need a strong heart.
