Then she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!” Luke 1:42 NKJV
Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and granted a special revelation. We know the Holy Spirit reveals things. The text doesn’t tell us whether Mary explained what happened to her yet. Therefore, we might assume the Holy Spirit revealed to Elizabeth Mary’s pregnancy.
First, Elizabeth uses the same words as the angel did when he greeted Mary. “Blessed are you among women.” Coincidence, I think not. This is the first time seeing Mary in some time. They didn’t have telephones for news to travel. There was no internet to share the glorious news either. Not even a telegram or postal service was available to them yet. But somehow Elizabeth knew. I’m sure Mary treasured this moment with her cousin.
Next Elizabeth says “blessed is the fruit of your womb.” Clearly, she knew Mary was pregnant. Elizabeth humbly said, “But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” She knew Mary was carrying the Son of God in her womb! The Holy Spirit reveals what God wants us to know.
What is He trying to tell you?
Lord Jesus thank you for your Holy Spirit through His guidance we can know what is to come. In your precious name we pray. Amen.
