(A journey through Verses from the Bible – with practical applications – to Love Jesus & Live Jesus!)
DAY 05: GOD HEARS OUR PRAYERS!
(Lk 1:25) “This is what the Lord has done for me when he looked favourably on me and took away the disgrace I have endured among my people.”
CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE VERSE
Elizabeth exclaims these words of gratitude, as she and Zechariah – who went through much humiliation and ignominy – are blessed with a child. Elizabeth exudes immense joy and reminds us…
… of the need to remain faithful to the God Who is always very near us – even though, sometimes we pass through moments of agonizing silence and abject isolation
… of the aspect of the being hopeful, knowing that God will strengthen us in every situation of apparent disgrace and disappointment
WHAT IS CHRIST SPEAKING TO ME, THROUGH THIS BIBLE VERSE?
Have faith that none of our prayers will go in vain before the Almighty Presence of God; the Lord in His Beautiful Time, will give us what’s most needed for our Salvation. Thus, every prayer ought to be “a prayer to allow His Eternal Plan to be fulfilled!”
We are never left alone in our moments of struggle; God’s Grace moulds us and shapes us, if we remain open to His Will.
HOW CAN I CELEBRATE CHRIST, THIS CHRISTMAS?
- Think of at least one incident of the past wherein we experienced God’s Grace and Presence in tough moments; offer a prayer of Gratitude and renew our hope for the present moments of struggle.
- Sing/Say with faith: “God will make a Way, where there seems to be no way!”
Lord Jesus, increase my faith to know that you are with me in every prayer that I make, and that Your Presence is constantly moulding me in every situation of my life, Amen!
Let us celebrate Christ, the Word, this Christmas, and live like Him!
God Bless! Live Jesus!
