The Voice of a doubter. “How can I be sure of this?” Zechariah stands in a holy place, in the Presence of God and doubts the word of God in his life. Surely this is the apex of pride and distrust of God. Do you ever doubt the word of God in your life? Why do we seek assurances and what might this reveal about us? How does this story end (Luke 1:20, 67ff). – Father, may I be more inclined toward trust and obedience than my questions and my surety in life. Amen.
