Zachariah’s Prophecy

Our ladies’ Bible study has been going through the book of Luke. Verse by verse we are eating this precious food and have decided we would not only study it, but also memorize a small portion of it. We decided on Zachariah’s prophecy.

Today, I as my heart had a hard time climbing out of a whole, the Holy Spirit reminded me of this precious truth from Zachariah’s prophecy,

“To grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies,
Might serve Him without fear,
In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.
“And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
For you will go on before the Lord to prepare His ways;
To give to His people the knowledge of salvation
By the forgiveness of their sins,
Because of the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us,
To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
Luke 1:74-79

“Illuminate my paths today,

God, through Your Word and as I pray

When darkness tempts and draws away

Please point me to Your Light – the Way”

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

      Thanks, Rene…
      You know that it was only when I looked ahead to the path in front of me that I could see these beams. When I turned around to see what it would look like from that angle I saw nothing … I guess there is a huge lesson in that too 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read… Bless you!

  3. Stunning photos, Heidi. Especially the bottom one.
