Daily Fountain 2017 - A Time Of Rejoicing





Saturday June 24

Bible Reading:     Luke 1: 57 - 66
Topic:         A Time Of Rejoicing

That which was impossible with me was made possible with God

Elizabeth, who was adjudged barren was blessed with a child at her old age. Men and women gathered to rejoice over what the Lord had done for the family (v. 58).

Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning - Ps. 30: 5b

There was a fulfillment of the words of the angel of the Lord.

Note the issues raised by the angel in Luke 1: 13 - 17. The name John was not common amongst the people at that time but the miracle that followed the writing of the name by Zacharias was a confirmation that the child John was special and was born for a special mission of God.

No one can alter or stop God's plan for you. It may be delayed but as you trust God whole-heartedly, know that God will bring joy to every situation in your life.

Prayer
Turn my sorrow into joy Oh Lord, Amen.

Memory Verse             Luke 1: 64
"And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God."
