Elizabeth and Zechariah had been praying for a child for so long that they didn’t really expect the Lord to answer. When He did answer, they discovered that His timing was perfect, and an encouragement to them and others. What longing do you trust God to fulfill?
“Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John. He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. … and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born. He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God.—Luke 1:13-16
Prayer: Lord, I trust You with the longings of my heart. I will keep seeking You. Take my prayers and answer them in a way that brings You glory. I ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.
