Blessed is she who has believed, that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!
Here Mary visits Elizabeth. And the Holy Spirit prompts Elizabeth to pronounce a blessing upon Mary for her faith. Faith that God would do what He promised her He would do.
How incredible to believe that Mary would actually become the mother of the Son of God. Nothing like this had ever happened in the entire course of human history! But Mary believed God!
Now Mary’s blessedness, her happiness, is assured!
What is true in Mary’s life is equally true in our own lives - when we believe what the Lord has said to us!
We are happy when we believe God offers us forgiveness of sins through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross!
We are content when we trust God, who says because of Jesus’ resurrection we will live with Him forever in heaven!
We are blessed when we believe God who tells us we can actually be changed in heart. We can become students of the Teacher! Empowered to become like Him!
What a source of joy to know that everything God promises us in Jesus Christ will become a reality in our lives.
Are we blessed? Happy? Contented?
We are, if and when – like Mary - we believe God is able to accomplish everything He has said to us!
