“His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm.”

Luke 1:50-51

These words are heartfelt by Mary knowing she was highly favoured in the eyes of her God, the One who mattered. She would have marvelled at the history of God’s people Israel over the generations in her education. Now a mighty deed had been performed in her own womb, an event beyond human comprehension.
A further wonder is that he would be the One who was more than ‘highly favoured’ as he would be the dearly loved Son who delighted God by doing his will.
