Luke 1:6-13 Both of them were upright in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commandments and regulations blamelessly. But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren; and they were both well along in years. An angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. 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 give him the name John". Wouldn't you like to have seen their faces - they had to be surprised. I wonder what they thought...were they scared, happy, or both?? I hope God has this one recorded so that I can watch it when I get to heaven!
Thought of the Day: God is in control, even of minutiae and happenings as random as a lot cast into the lap.
Hmmm...God's timing. God has His own watch and it is not like our watch at all. Randy and I love this picture of a waiting room.We laugh all the time because most of the time we feel like we are sitting in this waiting room...the song playing right now is the song playing in this room...there are millions of people in the room with us...it's hot & humid...the chair are hurting our bums...and angel just came to the door and said "now seeing #452"...and we are #1,243,654,765. I also say...all the time - "You wanna make God laugh - plan what you are going to do tomorrow."
In all seriousness I know that God knows the perfect timing and I am so glad He doesn't listen to me. Our world is moving so fast and changing faster - just look at technology since 1990. We all have cell phones, computers, and the internet - at our fingertips! It is good to be put in a place so that we may be slow to speak, quite to listen, and wait for the Lord.
I hope you find peace today - God is waiting there for you.
