• “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

A Woman of the Word by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/23/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: 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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

  • “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Verse of the Day
