Mary’s  Visit to Elizabeth!!! 
Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. …… Luke 1:39-40 
In our previous Study, we saw how an Angel  appeared to Mary to announce to her that she has-been selected to be the Mother of Jesus. We saw the response He gave to the Angel. Here we read of Mary going to Elizabeth to strengthen Her faith. 
. Now Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth.: This was six months after Elizabeth has been pregnant. Mary sought for fellowship with Elizabeth so that what God had done for Elizabeth might be an encouragement to Her. It is a good thing for those who have similar experience in the Lord to have Fellowship together. Why most of us get easily discouraged in our Christian race is because we lack Fellowship with other brothers and sisters that God has given to them. No one would have believed Mary’s pregnancy story, so She ran to someone  who had also received a miraculous visitation from God. When No one seems to understand what the Holy Spirit is trying to do with our lives, that is when we must run to other brethren to strengthen and encourage us. Also notice the Humility in Mary, despite the Angel already told her that among all women, God has selected Her, Yet she remained Humble. She still maintained that Humble position. She did not say in her mind, “Why should I go to Elizabeth, She should be the one to come to Me, for I have found Favour with God more than her”. Let us therefore remain Humble even when the Lord has done something for us that He has not done for others. 
Dear Friend, the Lord is seeking for those who will remain Humble even after the Lord has done something glorious through Them. May the Lord find us Humble like Mary in Jesus name.(Amen). God bless you. Have a blessed day.
