Seeking Him Podcast

A Woman of the Word

Nancy: Perhaps one of the greatest psalms ever written came from Mary of Nazareth.

Mary: "My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior" (Luke 1:46–47).

Nancy: One thing that impresses me about this prayer is that it shows Mary knew the Word of God. In those days women didn’t have a formal education, and Mary was probably illiterate. But she had listened to the Word of God and hidden it in her heart. Her prayer in Luke 1 has at least a dozen quotations from the Old Testament.

Mary: "He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts" (v. 51).

Nancy: Are you that familiar with the Word of God? Are your prayers, responses, and words saturated with His way of thinking?

Mary: "He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty" (v. 53).

Nancy: The best way to know God’s Word is to spend some time reading it today.

Mary: "He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy" (v. 54).
