MARY'S SONG - EVERY MAN'S CHRISTMAS PRAISE

The pure joy and emotion of the Christmas season abounds, even in times which try the souls of many. There is a supernatural code written in the hearts of all people, by their Creator, which instinctively seeks to praise or give thanks to Someone higher. The Christian knows just Who this Someone really is - He is Almighty God, the Father of Lights Who gives good things to all people, and salvation to those who belong to Christ. 

So at a time of year when even some of the hardest hearts are open to days and weeks of build-up to the official observance of the Birth of Christ in a Bethlehem stable about 2020 years ago, we have the perfect opportunity and privilege to share this praise with those around us. But most of all, we are blessed more than others to know the Power, Promises and Love of God in these few verses of Scripture.

Thinking about Jesus, some of the best praise and worship about Him and to our Heavenly Father can be found in Mary's Song below. Some call it the Magnificat. These words pack such prophetic power and joyful thanksgiving to our God. They were given by the Holy Spirit to His servant, the humble young woman who gave birth to her first born child (she had six more with Joseph), so that we can learn from her words. 

Key in on verses 49-50 and let it sink in just how Mighty, Fearsome and Powerful God really is.
Let verses 51-52 teaches us humility as we see the coming Judgment of the haughty and arrogant.
Be grateful in Verse 53, that God gives grace, provision and love to the Humble who serve Him, as the day is coming when the Christ child of Christmas stands at the Helm on that Day, and completes all He has promised in Scripture....to the praise and Glory of His Name. Amen and amen as we all give thanks for this wonderful tome to the King.

Therefore, look at this song in that light:
LUKE 1:46-55
46 And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord,
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.
49 For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name.
50 And His mercy is on those who fear Him
From generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with His arm;
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
52 He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.
54 He has helped His servant Israel,
In remembrance of His mercy,
55 As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever.”
