Luke 1:46-47 (KJB) And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Surely Mary did not understand all that was happening in her and through her life. However, she chose to glorify and magnify God anyways. Mary was rejoicing in the fact that God was going to use her, a woman of humble means, to bring about His plan for this world.
Mary chose to trust and rejoice in God. She did not worry about bearing a child not conceived in a “normal fashion.” She trusted in the fact that God was clearly involved in her circumstances.
Mary was spiritually content and if she had any anxiety about her circumstances it was quickly replaced by joy for her Savior and Lord.
