“And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is
heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his
Luke 1:12, 13
This scripture spoke to me deeply today. As I read it something jumped
out at me. Something I didn’t see before.
We know the story of Zacharias and how he didn’t believe the angel Gabriel.
We know because he didn’t believe he would not be able to speak until his son
But there is something else in that story that we need to see and learn from.
“Do not be afraid, Zacharias for your prayer is heard; “
Zacharias had prayed for a son! His wife was barren and well advanced in years (doesn’t
that sound familiar??)
“And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances
of the Lord blameless.
But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.”
Luke 1:6, 7
The word doesn’t tell us how long they were praying for. All we know is Zacharias prayer to YAH
for a child was heard!
That really encouraged me to keep praying! Time has passed but that doesn’t mean YAH has
forgotten about me.
It doesn’t mean He has forgotten about US!
He has heard our prayers……period!
Why it hasn’t come to pass yet, only YAH knows. But don’t lose hope, don’t give up.
People may be talking about you, and looking at you funny because your breakthrough hasn’t
come yet but hold on to hope. Yeshua will come through for you.
John’s mom Elizabeth said something amazing during her pregnancy;
“Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take
away my reproach among people.”
The Lord took away her reproach among the people. There was a time when people looked
down upon her because of her bareness but that all changed when YAH heard their prayers
and answered them!
He will take away your reproach! You may be looked down upon because you haven’t got your
breakthrough but it is coming. Keep on praying in faith and EXPECT an answer.
Zacharias prayed for a child but after some time stopped believing he would receive the child.
Let’s trust YAH no matter how hard it gets. No matter how hopeless it seems keep on praying and
believing you have your answer.
I want to share one more amazing scripture before I close;
“And Mary said, My soul magnifies and extols the Lord,
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For He has looked upon the low station and humiliation of His handmaiden.
For behold, from now on all generations [of all ages] will call me blessed and
declare me happy and to be envied!”
That is the God we serve friends. He doesn’t enjoy seeing you being humiliated.
In the place that you are right now, He will answer you.
In your low station keep praying. Trust Him to come through for you.
Bless you friends…..
Trust God and Do Good 🙂
” You may be looked down upon because you haven’t got your breakthrough but it is coming. Keep on praying in faith and EXPECT an answer.” Those lines deserve repeating. I know I’m writing them down too, today.
Yes indeed Lynn!
He hears our prayers!
This is so encouraging!!!! Thanks for sharing. This made something on the inside of me leap.
