Just as He promised // 12-12-22

“Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has visited and redeemed his people. He has sent us a mighty Saviour from the royal line of his servant David, just as he promised through his holy prophets long ago.” Luke‬ ‭1:68-70‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This is from an amazing prophecy from a man called Zechariah. He had just seen God realise a promise that seemed impossible to fulfil, for his wife to have a baby in her old age when she had always been unable to conceive. Full of faith he prophesied about the coming of Jesus, with a new appreciation that if God has promised something then it will come to pass, no matter how long it takes, or how unconducive circumstances are to that promise. God knows best, He is faithful to His word, and His timing is perfect! Trust Him in the waiting, trust Him when the situation looks impossible, trust that He can and does make a way! Lord, I praise You that You are a promise keeping God, thank You for Your faithfulness, I choose to put my hope in Your promise today, to turn my gaze from the troubles and the treasures of this world, and to fix my eyes on You, my Redeemer and mighty Saviour! Amen 🙌🏼😊
