Let these eight monumental words sink in right now:
"For no word from God will ever fail." Luke 1:37
Joined together, these words comprise one of the weightiest declarations ever made in human history.
Yes, specifically made to the Virgin Mary when confronted with her impossible situation, yet
a declaration to all of humanity.
To you, dear sojourner. And to me.
The birth of Jesus is the quintessential proof that no promise spoken by God—no matter how lengthy the wait, how silent the suffering, or how hopeless the outlook—will ever fail to come to pass.
Therefore. . .
When the Lord personally confronts you or me, making a specific declaration of his Word into our lives and situations, it's serious business.
And it's serious folly when we doubt him.
