Devotion for Wednesday after the Third Sunday in Advent

“I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. I will not take my steadfast love from him, as I took it from him who was before you, but I will confirm him in my house and in my kingdom forever, and his throne shall be established forever.”

~ 1 Chronicles 17:13-14

God spoke these words to King David through the prophet Nathan a thousand years before Jesus came to earth. Sometimes we think God doesn’t hear us because He doesn’t seem to answer us as soon as we’d like. But God’s timing is not our timing. He promised Jesus thousands of years before He came to earth, and He has promised that Jesus will come again. We can trust that He will happen, but we can’t know when. In the meantime, He is sitting on the throne, just as God promised.

Father God, thank You that You always keep Your promises, that You are always working even when I can’t see it. Remind me when I doubt and worry about anything that You are in control and that Your plan is perfect. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.
