Too Good to be True?

Zechariah said to the angel, “How will I know this is going to happen? My wife and I are both very old.” The angel answered, “I am Gabriel, God’s servant, and I was sent to tell you this good news. You have not believed what I have said. So you will not be able to say a thing until all this happens. But everything will take place when it is supposed to.”

(Luke 1:18-20 CEV)

Is it possible to serve God, even be a priest, and not believe God’s Word? According to today’s passage, it is. Zechariah, who had been serving as God’s priest for many years, didn’t believe the angel’s words when he heard them. Sadly, God’s children continue to struggle with unbelief when it comes to things that are beyond their understanding. However, the good news is that Zechariah’s lack of faith (and ours, at times) didn’t stop God from fulfilling His promise. Paul told the Corinthian Christians that “no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ”’ (2 Corinthians 1:20 NIV). Believe God’s Word even when it seems like it’s too good to be true.

Believe God’s Word.
