Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When God puts tough circumstances in our lives, we either worship or we whine. I’ll admit that way too often I find myself whining. I guess that’s why I love Mary of Nazareth.

Her world was disrupted when an angel came and told her she was going to bear God’s Son. She could have argued, complained, or whined. But instead, she responded in worship. She said, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior” (Luke 1:46-47).

That began one of the greatest hymns of praise of all time as she worshiped God for His wonderful acts and His mercy and thanked Him for choosing her to be a part of His plan.

You may be facing a difficult circumstance today. Have you been responding with worship or with whining? Why not take a moment right now to say, “My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior”?

With Seeking Him, I'm Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
