God never gives up on us
  • Judges 13:2-7,24-25
  • Psalm 71:3-6,16-17
  • Luke 1:5-25

God is faithful to his promises. Even when things seem to be turning out in an unfavourable way, he will fulfil his promises to his people. Often we may feel disappointed with failed promises and unmet expectations. God never gives up on us, even if we lose hope about his promises. The miraculous events leading to the birth of John the Baptist shows the faithfulness of Zechariah and Elizabeth, who despite their old age and barrenness, remained obedient and devoted to God. In his divine plan, God chose this couple to play a pivotal role in the coming of Jesus. The Gospel proclamation reminds us that our unbelief regarding his promises, displeases God. He is above all our struggles and hurdles. Let us remember that, even when things seem to disappoint us, God is in control of the situation, and he is bigger than our problems. “In this hour, in this place I choose to believe that nothing is impossible with God. Everything is possible in Jesus’ name.” Even if a mother forgets the child, he will never forget us.

Prayer: Abba Father, I believe in your promises. Amen.
