His Mercy

When Mary,  the mother  of Jesus,  visited Elizabeth,  the mother  of John  the Baptist,  she exclaimed  about the LORD  in Luke 1:49-50,

For the Mighty One  has done great things  for me;
And holy  is His name.
And His mercy  is upon generation  after generation
Toward those  who fear Him.

Mary also said  in verse 53,

He has filled  the hungry  with good things;
And sent away  the rich  empty-handed.

God Almighty did  “great things”  for Mary  because  His mercy  is upon generation  after generation  toward those  who fear Him.”     Mary humbly  had the deepest respect  for the LORD  —  she respectfully feared  His authority  as our Creator and Redeemer.     She did not  have the kind  of “fear”  that could not trust  the LORD.     Mary’s  “fear”  was a heart-felt honor  of God’s holiness  and love  towards His people.

Because  of God’s  “mercy”  Mary knew  that everybody  who was  “hungry”  to know God’s truths  would be  “filled”  “with good things”.     But,  those who felt  “rich”  and satisfied  with their self-righteousness  would be  “sent away”  “empty-handed”.     When people  feel self-sufficient  and don’t care  about staying  in close fellowship  with  “the Mighty One”,  they won’t receive anything  of eternal worth  from Him.

God’s  “mercy”  does not fail those  who humbly  put their faith  in Him  through thick  and thin.

Knowing  “His mercy”  towards all  who are  “hungry”  for His truths,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your holy name  is blessed forever  and ever  because You have stooped down  to help us  in our need.”

Love,
Margaret
