Mother Teresa painfully confronted the teary-eyed man: “I’m sorry … I have no such medicine. But trust God. The Good Lord will provide.”
“God always prepares the way for our needs.”
Something similar happened to Zechariah and Elizabeth in our gospel reading today. God not only provided for their need, but went beyond by giving them a son who would prepare the way for the Lord!
The name Zechariah means, “The Lord has remembered.” Indeed, He remembers all our needs even before we ask.
Do you believe the Lord remembers you in whatever life situation you are in? Can you think of a specific example to share with and inspire our readers?
Everything is possible for Him for so long as we have faith and are faithful to Him. God bless you friends.
