Day Four and Five of the Advent reading are filled with promise. The first passage was Jeremiah 33:14-16 and the second was Luke 1:5-10.
They both talk about how the Lord is righteous and because of His righteousness He will fulfill His promises to Judah and Elizabeth. I find it encouraging that in both instances the promises came true. The fact that He kept His promises in those two instances, proof that whatever He has promised us will come true. The Bible is filled with promises to us, that we can claim because we know that He will keep them. This life would be awful if we didn't have any assurance that He would do what He said.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday. Mine is quite rainy!
