God Is Listening
Read Luke 1:1 through 2:52
But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John” (Luke 1:13).
Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous servants of God who had agonized in prayer over having no children. Can you imagine Zechariah’s astonishment? While standing in the temple offering incense, an angel appeared to Zechariah and told him his prayers had been heard. Zechariah, however, did not believe the message from the angel and was mute until the day John the Baptist was born.
God hears the prayers of the righteous and will answer them in the right way and time. Remember, God’s plans will always be better than human plans. Zechariah and Elizabeth waited a long time for a child. That child changed many lives, was greatly used by the Lord, and made history.
So, be ready for God’s divine interruptions in your day and receive them by faith. No matter what you face, nothing is impossible with God.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me to believe You for the impossible.
Quicklook: Luke 1:5–25
