And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me — holy is his name.”
— Luke 1:46-49
There are so many lessons that we can learn from this amazing woman of God on this day. She was relentlessly steadfast and kept her eyes unflinchingly fixed on the author of the Promise that she carried.
She committed to enjoy and celebrate the journey and not merely endure this calling as a burdensome obligation.
She surrounded herself with great faith-filled people and reminded herself of all the amazing things God had done for her people thus far.
She knew that the same God who had been faithful to them would also be faithful to His Promise in her.
Let’s determine to be people of faith who expect to hear from God through His Word, who will not hesitate to say yes to our divine assignments when He gives them to us, and who will surround ourselves with people who inspire us to see the dream come to pass.
As we go forward, let’s never forget to give Him all the praise and honor that He is due and continually speak words of life that affirm the dream and the promise that we carry. Each word we speak either waters the seed or destroys it, so let’s speak life.

In Jesus Name I speak life to my ministry, life to my health, life to my family, life to my relations, life to my community, life to my neighborhood, life to my nation, life to my work. It is my season of convergence, all things will work together for my good now and forevermore. Amen.
