41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Mary visiting Elizabeth provided a reaction from John inside the womb. Earlier in verse 15, Gabriel the angel, is talking to Zechariah, Elizabeth’s husband, predicting that John would be filled with the Holy Spirit in his mother’s womb. This prediction from the angel along with Mary being filled with the Holy Spirit showed the significance of the relationship. God has much in store for us and our lives that was planned before we were born. We see this with Gabriel’s predictions while John was still in the womb. Like John, God has created you for a unique purpose to advance the kingdom using the gifts He’s given you. How does God want to use you? And are you letting Him?
