Believe God - Bro. T. Stephen

My dear Brothers   and sisters   in Christ,   I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Luke 1:45, “Blessed is she who believed.”

The book of Luke begins with an illustration of a couple, “Zechariah and Elizabeth.” Zechariah was a priest during the reign of King Herod. His wife was also of the priestly family of Aaron. They were both righteous before God,  walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. They were well advanced in years. Zechariah and Elizabeth had been praying for a child.  But they did not have one. Now they were almost very old. They had almost  forgotten  their prayer request. But God remembered them. Zechariah was a priest in the temple. While He was serving as priest before God and when he was burning incense he went into the temple of the Lord. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, “Do not be afraid, for your prayer is heard and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son.  And you shall call his name John. Zechariah asked the angel, “How shall I know this? ’The Angel replied I am Gabriel who stands in the presence of God and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.  Behold you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place.”

Since Zechariah was quite old he had lost hope, but Elizabeth believed that God would bless her with a child. Her faith was honored. Though God delayed in answering their request, He answered their prayers. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy spirit.  Elizabeth’s full-time came for her to be delivered and she brought forth a son. For with God nothing  will be impossible. When her neighbors and relatives heard how the Lord had shown mercy to her they rejoiced with her. On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child.  And they would have called him by the name of his father Zechariah. But Zechariah asked for a writing tablet and wrote saying,  ‘’His name is John.”All the people marveled. Immediately his mouth was opened and tongue loosened and he spoke, praising God. Zechariah was filled with the holy spirit, and prophesied saying , “ Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he  hath visited and redeemed his people,.  And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us. In the house of his servant David.”  So the child grew and became strong in spirit. The Bible says, Commit your ways unto the Lord trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.

My dear Brothers and Sisters,  it  is highly important to believe in the promises of God.  When God tells  something through  the angel of God  or the prophet of  God one ought to believe in their words.  One must have faith in the Lord.

Zechariah doubted so he became mute and remained speechless. But even though Elizabeth had passed the age of childbearing, she believed and therefore she conceived and brought forth a son.  May the Lord increase your faith in God.

God bless you.


Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord may my children learn to trust in God without wavering.  Increase their faith in You Lord. Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. So Lord help my children to walk by faith and not by sight. In Jesus name we pray,
