Mary’s Reaction to the Miraculous Conception (Luke 1:46-55)

Dr. Luke, an associate and traveling companion of Paul the Apostle, recorded Mary’s reaction to this angelic visit and the wondrous truth of the Savior’s birth and her role in bringing him into the world.
Here is what she said:

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever.”
