(A journey through Verses from the Bible – with practical applications – to Love Jesus & Live Jesus!)
DAY 19: GOD FULFILLS HIS PROMISES!
(Mt 1:22) “All this took place to fulfil what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet!”
CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE VERSE
The announcement of the Birth of Christ, is accompanied by St Mathew mightily proclaiming the prophetic verses of the Old Testament, to give the beautiful message…
… that God always fulfils His promises, and is with us always – working out everything for our good
… that God’s delays are not His denials, and that we need to grow in trusting and hoping in Him
WHAT IS CHRIST SPEAKING TO ME, THROUGH THIS BIBLE VERSE?
- Never be discouraged even when things seem going the unexpected way – the Promises and the Presence of the Lord will always accompany and strengthen you! God, will surely make the Way, where there seems to be none!
- To wait on the Lord and His Time is a great Blessing. It surely is not easy; but the fruit of this patience, as Scripture says, has always been rewarding and salvific!
HOW CAN I CELEBRATE CHRIST, THIS CHRISTMAS?
Think of one unexpected thing happening in your life – offer it to the Providence of God, and ask Him to protect and lead you!
Do you feel you have an unanswered prayer? Tell: Lord, I offer this desire to You, and trust Your Holy Will and Plan in this matter
Loving Jesus, grant me Gift of Hope to trust that You will always fulfil all Your Promises, and to be joyfully patient in every situation of my life, Amen!
Let us celebrate Christ, this Christmas, and live like Him!
God Bless! Live Jesus!
