Most mothers immediately bond with their newborn child.
Both the mom and baby become deeply involved in a parent child relationship.
The infant is totally dependent on the mother; while the mother is at the baby’s beckoned call.
The mom may get weary, but she has a desire to meet every need of her babe.
As the infant’s caregiver, she wants the baby to feel secure in every way.
Mary knew baby Jesus would be no ordinary child.
He would not only be her son, but also her Lord.
She could not contain her joy!
She was at his disposal.
“And Mary said:
‘My soul exalts the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
‘For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave;
For behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed.
‘For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name.
‘And His mercy is upon generation after generation
Toward those who fear Him.
‘He has done mighty deeds with His arm;
He has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart.
‘He has brought down rulers from their thrones,
And has exalted those who were humble.
‘He has filled the hungry with good things;
And sent away the rich empty-handed.
‘He has given help to Israel His servant,
In remembrance of His mercy,
As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and his descendants forever (Luke 1:46-55 NASB).”
Mary bonded; Lord Jesus, I’m yours!
