Christmas Miracles Dec. 1
I started looking to see if I could find a miracle associated with the Christmas story in the bible for every day in December. I quickly realized this wouldn't be hard to do. I don't know if you have ever realized all of the miraculous events surrounding the birth of Jesus, but they are numerous. Let's look at one each day of December.
Miracle 1 : Zechariah and Elizabeth were very old.
They had no children because Elizabeth was unable to conceive, and they were both very old.
God had a plan to bring His son into the world, this plan Included a Forerunner to proclaim to the people, straighten up, the King is coming. God chooses to bring this forerunner we know of as John the Baptist into the world by Zechariah and Elizabeth, who would be his parents. Zechariah was a priest and him and Elizabeth were very Godly people. Sounds like a good choice but there was a problem they had no children, and they were now very old. Zechariah even had trouble believing the angels declaration to him that he would have a son and to name him John. God wants us to know the birth of his son was miraculous from start to finish it was no man's plan and no man could bring it about. Only He could do such a marvelous thing. So that we will know only God can start it and only He can finish it in our lives and along the way nothing is impossible for him.
