Great Things ~ Sunday Devotion

For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name. Luke 1:49 (NKJV)

This is part of Mary’s song, the one she exclaimed after she had been told she would be the mother of the Son of God and after she had visited with Elizabeth. 

I can barely imagine myself in Mary’s shoes, but I’m going to try. When I read her words, “For He who is mighty has done great things for me,” I start to think about the great things she’s talking about in that moment and how I might feel the same way. 

Mary had just been told she was going to be a mother, the mother of a very special child. While I can’t imagine being the mother of the Son of God, both the joy and overwhelm that would come with that, I do know all the feelings that come with being the mother of two wonderful young men. The Lord equipped me to be a mother and a stepmother and has blessed me on this beautiful journey by doing great things along the way.

God was faithful to Mary. He will be faithful to you, too. Take a moment to reflect on His mighty power and goodness. Share on X

Mary was visiting with Elizabeth at this time. I can imagine this part a little more easily. God provided a special friend for Mary, one who could relate to her and support her. God has done great things for me by blessing me with special friendships. I used to shy away from close friendships with other women. I was so caught up in all my insecurities that I didn’t often connect with other women. But over the years, God has blessed me with genuine friendships. I now have so many special women, beautiful souls, who I call friend and sister in Christ. 

God was faithful to Mary. He has been faithful to me. He will be faithful to you, too. God is always working and doing great things in our lives. Take a moment to reflect on His mighty power and goodness.  

Action Step: What great things has God done for you? Thank Him for them today. Then, tell someone about it. She might need the reassurance to know that He wants to do great things for them too!
