John’s dad, Zechariah, had an angel appear to him, and his response? “How can I know you are speaking the truth?”
Mary and Joseph each had angels appear to them. Joseph just did what he was told, and Mary wanted to know how God was going to do what He promised.
Simeon and Anna waited and obeyed.
The interesting thing is that God did what he promised regardless of what people believed.
Has God spoken to you? Do you know in your heart that God has promised you something?
Be encouraged. God follows through on His promises.
