This week's devotion is from Luke 1:5-25. Karen Kingsbury tells us the story of a couple who never gave up on the love they have for each other and they knew that no matter what they would one day be married and have six children. The obstacles that were thrown their way didn't stop them from believing what they knew God promised them.
What has God promised you? Are you being patient in all of our obstacles as you wait for His promise to come true?
Luke 1:5-25 tells us about Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth. Zechariah and his wife were very old and even though they wanted children, they were never able to have any children in their early years. One day when they were very old, an angel appeared to Zechariah and told him of a promise from God that he will one day have a son and he will name him John. Zechariah did not believe the angel because of how their ages and he didn't understand how it was impossible. The angel then told Zechariah because he doubted God, he will not be able to speak until the baby is born. God delivered on this promise and Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth had a baby boy and named him John. John the Baptist.
I ask you again, what has God promised you and are you trusting in God to deliver this promise or are you doubting it can be done? When you start doubting whether God will come through with His promises, please remember this verse...
Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking it is impossible. But with God everything is possible." Matthew 19:26
But with God everything is possible. Don't lose hope on the promise that God has placed in your heart. Know that God is with us and is helping us through this time while we patiently wait for His promises to come true.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." - James 1:17
