From the book Why the Nativity? by David Jeremiah:
Day 4 - December 4th
"Why the song of Mary?"He writes:
"At the beginning of an amazing journey - one no other woman would ever travel - Mary's focus was in the right place. She knew, and expressed through her song, that all the resources of God are unlimited. His strength makes all things possible, and his love makes any burden a joy to bear."Dr. Jeremiah comes to this conclusion after pointing out in bits and pieces of Mary's Song, also known as the Magnificat, that she was a young woman who knew her God. One of the observations he makes is that even though Mary was caught by surprise, she searched for words from the psalms she had hidden in her heart.
Reading through Mary's Song is breathtaking. It is so clear that she knew her Creator. Go to the first chapter in Luke and find it for yourself. Read it and ask your questions.
For further study: Compare 1 Sam 2:1-10 with Mary's praise song.
