Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
God gives us many promises.
They even come to us in many ways.
Sometimes he speaks almost audibly.
Sometimes we dream prophetic dreams.
Sometimes we read of his promises directly from the word.
One thing we can be sure of, is that God is a keeper of promises.
He is truth. This scripture reminds us of the promise of Christ.
Imagine how Mary must have felt once the angel came and gave her the promise of being the mother of Christ.
I’m sure doubt tried to set in, and she had struggles of her own, but she continued to trust in the Lord and not her own thoughts and understanding.
She continued to pursue and believe in the promises of God in her life, and we should too!
- Prayer: God I thank you so much that you have a perfect will and a perfect plan for my life. Help me Lord to trust in you and be faithful to know that your promises are coming because you are truth and life, and doubt and fear are liars. Thank you for your promises, in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
