Zacharias and Elisabeth had a difficult trial in their lives and marriage. They were childless. However, the Lord had chosen them and predestinated (ordered) their lives. They were childless according to purpose. During the Trial, God kept them faithful. We don't understand our trials in the midst of them, but we are called to faithfulness in them, trusting the Lord. The unfruitfulness of Elisabeth's womb translates to Believers who look for fruitfulness in their own lives. In whatever tribulation or trial you are going through, trust the Lord. Stay upon his means of grace in the preaching of the word and the ordinances he gives to his church. Don't be turned to the flesh to produce fruit. Cry to your God and trust him to ripen his ordained works in you according to his gracious will and purpose. The birth of John signaled the nearness of Christ's coming. Your trials too, like an harbinger signal that Christ is near. Trust him.
in this sermon, we continue to follow Stephen's defense against the accusations of his accusers. Stephen uses the histroy of the nation of Israel in his defense. WE should be able to recite the history of Israel as did Joseph.
[New Audio Expositional Sermon] Moses - His Faith and Choices [Exposition of Hebrews 11:23-28]
What you believe has an impact on the choices you make in life. And the choices we make in life have consequences. In this expositional sermon, we will see how Moses' faith led him to make choices in life which had great rewards. We too are called to make choices, not by focusing on immediate worldly rewards, but by fixing our eyes on future rewards given by God. May we emulate Moses' faith and experience God's astonishing work in our lives.
Hebrews 12:1-3 " Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 ¶ For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
2 Timothy 2:3-4 " Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier."

How God Fix's Broken Hearts! Psalm 34:15-22 David spoke directly to the needs of his depressed companions, assuring them that the Lord cared about their souls; that is, their feelings and emotional well-being. When our hearts are broken and our spirits are contrite or crushed, ground to powder—He is near. He comes to us when we are hurting, and invites us to cast our heavy burden upon Him.Psalm 34 begins in a cave and ends at Calvary! David's message to his dejected band of outcasts is our message to the world today: Regardless of what we have done, we can be delivered through the sacrificial death of God's Son on the cross. He bore our sin in His body, and we can live righteously through the power of His sacrifice.
As we continue our study, we see that God's plan and design for His people is that they endure trials for His glory and our good. We may not understand what all that means but we must put our faith and trust in Him through it all.
