I am studying the book of Luke with my bible study class. This morning in my reading, this came to mind:
Zechariah and Elizabeth were very old. Elizabeth was unable to have children. They continued to be righteous and obey the Lord's commandments. They kept working.
Have you been praying for something a long time, and feel like it will never come? Well, it might not manifest because God knows it is not for you, and it might manifest, but at His perfect timing.
Consider Zechariah and Elizabeth as an example. Although it appeared to them they would never have children, they continued to serve the Lord. While serving, Zechariah received news of a son to come. Not just any son, but one that would prepare the way for the SON.
What a mighty God we serve, He has a plan just for you.
He answers prayers how he see fit and He has ordained plans just for you.
Don't stop serving God.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
