May God Help Us To Grow Spiritually, Even When Life Is Not Very Easy!

Luke 1:39-80
There are two great ‘songs of praise’ here (46-55,67-79). God was doing ‘a new thing’. His people were rejoicing in Him. Great things were happening. Greater things were going to happen. Soon, the Saviour would be born. The birth of John the Baptist (57-66) - This was great. The birth of our Saviour - This would be even greater. Mary and Zechariah felt the touch of God upon their lives, and their hearts were filled with praise to God: ‘When I feel the touch of Your hand upon my life, it causes me to sing a song that I love You, Lord. So from deep within my spirit singeth unto Thee, You are my King, You are my God, and I love You Lord’(Mission Praise, 753). John was ‘in the wilderness’. He ‘became strong in spirit’(80). May God help us to grow spiritually, even when life is not very easy!
