Blessed among Women

Jdg 5:24 Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent.

Blessed be Jael who has destroyed the king of Canaan with a tent peg through his head as he rested in her tent. Blessed be the work of her hands that delivered Israel from the enemy king. Evil men are killed in their hiding places, for no one can hide from the LORD.

Thirteen hundred years would pass until another woman would be called blessed among women. Mary was the virgin mother of our Lord Jesus Christ who would be our deliverer from sin and bondage.

Luk 1:39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
Luk 1:40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
Luk 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
Luk 1:42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

Blessed be Mary, for the fruit of her womb, the work of God. Blessed is the Lord Jesus Christ who was nailed to a cross to deliver us all from the King of darkness. Blessed is the one who came to free the captives, to heal the sick and to forgive us our sins. Blessed are those who receive salvation, not by the work of their hands, but by faith in the one who was nailed, bled and died in our place. Blessed is He who is risen from the grave and is the King of Kings, Hallelujah and amen.
