Luke 1:50-5650 His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. 51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. 52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. 53 He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful 55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.” 56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.
Sovereign God, I marvel at your faithful acts of mercy and rescue through generations of history reaching into my life. Thank you for the breadth of your love touching the humble and the hungry. Today I want to live as a hungry person filled with the goodness of a merciful God.
