Left Speechless

Verse of the Month

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2:11 

December 15th – 21st   

Left Speechless 

Scripture Reading: Luke 1 (chapter) 

Do you remember the story of Zacharias? His wife Elizabeth was carrying a son the Lord said would be named John, but Zacharias didn't like the choice of names. The real problem was that Zacharias ran into pride, doubt and a lack of trust in God's decision. To prevent him from interfering with the plan of the Lord, God closed Zacharias' mouth so he couldn't speak. His voice returned when he lined up his words with God's plan. 

The Bible says that Zachararis was a "good man" (humble, meek), but he still had times when flesh wanted its own way. God knew that and forgave Zacharias when he put his will aside and listened to the Lord. 

When we think our ways are better than God's, let us remember this passage in scripture. If trials, tests and doubt try to overcome you, repent and ask God to forgive you. He promises He will remember you and not your shame. 

Take time over this week to seek God and His plans for your life. Re-evaluate what you are spending time on and begin to ask God what you should be spending more time on each day. If you feel yourself disagreeing with what the Lord is telling you, close your mouth and let God do the talking. 

Until you have the answers you asked for, open your mouth with praise to Him. Before long, your words will line up with His plans and glad tidings will come!
