It is hard to believe that the Christmas season is upon us….
But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son… (Galatians 4:4, NLT)
In reading those words, I realized that God always keeps His promise. He also keeps it according to His time schedule which is so different than our schedules. When the time has fully come. If we have not seen the fulfillment of a promise, the time has not yet fully come. And so we wait, much the way the world waited for His birth.
Lord, thank You for speaking to us through Your Word and Your prophets. It strengthens my faith to read of the many things that were prophesied in Your Word which have already come to pass. I know this means that every promise in Your Word will be fulfilled. Thank You for always keeping Your promises.
I humble myself before You this day and ask that You would help me to clearly hear and understand Your instructions to me. Enable me to fully know Your laws and obey them. Give me every-increasing faith to believe that Your promises are true. Help me to see all the promises to me in Your Word so that I can stand strong in them and rest in You as I wait for them to be fulfilled in my life.
In Jesus’ name I pray.
