    Praise The Lord Jesus.
  • Eze Harstin
    Luke talked about the possibilities in believing God even in times of seemingly imposible situations.The couple who walked with God,Elizabeth and Zachariah were visited by angel.He also assured,us of our continuity to serve God all the days of our lives since God has delivered us from our enemies.We should not only rejoice because the devil is subject unto us but our names are written in heaven.
  • Maggie Bazaar for verse 37
    The world will pass away but his word will remain and rain come to water the earth and plants sprouts so does his word will not return void .so indeed nothing is impossible with God
  • Joan Minja for verse 45
    God speaks to us through his Word, and for us to see the manifestations of his word in our daily life, we have to believe. Faith can move mountains and it is profound to us as believers!....as there shall be a performance of those things, only of we believe! Jesus is Lord!!!
  • Cynnee
    When we sometimes worry about our lives we should remember that with God all things are possible.
  • This is a very powerful verse. Note that due to a lack of faith in God, Zacharias was made deaf and dumb, in order that the good plans God had for him be fulfilled. God uses even what may seem like trials and tribulations, for the fulfilment of his plans. Which are always for our own good.
