zacharias is struck dumb until the fulfillment of gabriel’s prophecy
“How can I be sure of this?” [v. 18 NIV]
He went on to give a worldly reason as to why this promise must certainly be impossible: “I am an old man and my wife is well along in years.” [v. 18, NIV]
I may not have a time in my life when I’ve told an angel God’s promises for my life are impossible, but I know I’ve told my heavenly father. It’s so easy to say “I believe! I’ll go where you call me to go!”
It’s harder to put those words into action.
Let us pray this verse in Mark 9:24 together today:
“Lord, I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief.” [NIV]
