What Did Mary Know?



Ben walks us through the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and shows us how Mary’s understanding of who God is gave her supernatural peace in the middle of a chaotic life.

Key Takeaway

Focusing on the character of God is a remedy for Chaos.

  1. Mary's first response is not to look to her circumstances but to look to God.
  2. Mary recognizes the significance of being seen as she is of the low estate in her society, yet the Mighty One sought her out. He sees us, and He stands apart. There is an otherness to God.
  3. Mary reminds us of His past and present consistency. You can expect that the same God who saw Abraham sees you.
  4. Mary celebrates the strength of Jesus. He rules over every place and he leads us. He has used that strength in service of His mercy.
  5. Mary highlights His steadfast love. He is a stabilizing force.


"There are some difficulties associated with belonging to God, but all of these stresses get right-sized when I look up at what my sovereign King is like; that He is strong, and He is loving. That He is set apart, but He sees me."
