As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 See, the virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name him Immanuel, which is translated “God is with us.”Matthew 1:22-23 CSB
God fulfills His word.
I will see the promises of God.
At some point, we’ve been let down by another person and that experience finds its way into our minds. We often underestimate the influence of others on our beliefs. When faced with miraculous promises, our mind may wonder, “How can God not let me down, when all I’ve known is disappointment from others?” There will be times when we don’t fully embrace the promises of God, simply because it’s beyond our comprehension. But let Jesus’s birth reorient your mind to the ultimate promise fulfilled. God sent His son to save us from our sins and invite us into eternity in heaven.
A Prayer Starter…
Heavenly Father, You are a promise keeper. You always fulfill Your word. Lord, I thank you for all the promises you have spoken over me. Help me to stay focused on You and not my past experiences. May I always remember the ultimate promise fulfilled through Your son, Jesus Christ… In Jesus’ name. Amen.
