Pondering the Prepared ones: Zacharias and Elisabeth
And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
Here were two ordinary people going about their normal duties - childless and well beyond childbearing years. Blameless! what a commentary! Suddenly into that "normal-ness" came upheaval! An angelic visit - the promise of a son - the loss of speech for Zacharias - the miraculous fulfillment - the fore runner to Messiah - the promised "Elijah" the one crying in the wilderness PREPARE ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the dessert a highway for our God!"
This is why our faithfulness and every day routines are important - we never know when GOD will show up in a miraculous moment and life will nevermore be the same! Are you living in that kind of expectancy today?
OH COME to my heart, LORD JESUS, there is room in my heart for THEE!
