[22] The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; [23] they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. [24]“The Lord is all I need,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” [25] The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. [26] It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
Lamentations 3:22-26

There was a priest named Zechariah serving in the Temple. He and his wife, Elizabeth, followed God, but they had no children. And they were getting old. When he was in the Temple to burn incense, an angel of God appeared and told him he and Elizabeth would have a son, and they should name him John. John would prepare God’s people for His coming. Zechariah, surprised at the message, questioned the angel. “How can this be? We’re old!” From then until the birth of their son, the angel did not permit Zechariah to speak because of his disbelief.

The Jewish people of Israel had been waiting for the Messiah to come for centuries. They had looked forward to the fulfillment of God’s promise to His people. Now Zechariah was given the news that his child would be the one to prepare God’s people for His coming, and he had nine months to wait.

In silence.

Excited and eagerly expecting the promise of the Messiah.


In silence.

May you, in the midst of the excitement of the holiday season, make time for silence. May you break away from the busyness and rush of Christmas, and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
