Thursday

Read Luke 1:46-55

46 Mary said,

“My heart praises the Lord;
47     my soul is glad because of God my Savior,
48     for he has remembered me, his lowly servant!
From now on all people will call me happy,
49     because of the great things the Mighty God has done for me.
His name is holy;
50     from one generation to another
   he shows mercy to those who honor him.
51 He has stretched out his mighty arm
   and scattered the proud with all their plans.
52 He has brought down mighty kings from their thrones,
   and lifted up the lowly.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
   and sent the rich away with empty hands.
54 He has kept the promise he made to our ancestors,
   and has come to the help of his servant Israel.
55 He has remembered to show mercy to Abraham
   and to all his descendants forever!”

Think

Jesus will scatter the proud (52), humble mighty kings, lift up the lowly (52) and fill the hungry (53).  If you’re down and out, troubled and empty - then Jesus is for you.

Pray

Lift me up O Lord, and help me to remember that it is only you who can lift me.
