S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,
This is just one short part of Zechariah’s prophecy over his infant son John the Baptist. Scripture says in verse 67 that Zechariah was filled with the Spirit, and then he prophesied an incredible word over his newborn son that indeed came to pass.
What a change came over this old man, Zechariah. I say that because sometime earlier the angel of the Lord had prophesied that he and his wife Elizabeth would conceive and bear a son who would run ahead of the Lord Jesus to prepare the way of the Lord. When Zechariah heard this, he doubted and reminded the angel how old he was. The angel said, “Because you doubted the word of the Lord, you will have your ability to speak taken away from you until the baby is born.” That’s exactly what happened. But Zechariah and Elizabeth did conceive, and the child was born. At that point, the Holy Spirit came on Zechariah, and he began to prophesy with his actual voice. Everything he prophesied about his son John the Baptist came to pass. The power of this story is simply, “By The Power Of The Spirit Things Change.”
This AM, as I pray and as my friend reads this prayer, may they be reminded all day long today, no matter what obstacle it is that they are facing, that “By The Power Of The Spirit Things Change.” Amen
