A Woman of the Word by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/22/11

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.”

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.”

  • “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot
