A Visit from the Savior


And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. (Luke 7:16, Holy Bible, King James Version)

God’s people had waited centuries from the promise of the fulfillment of the birth of a Savior. Now Jesus, a man of compassion, brought a widow’s son back to life. But they were afraid. Afraid of the Savior they longed for. How could that be?

A miracle, an unexplainable event that defied nature, first shocked the crowd. Then they understood. The promised Savior dwelt among men on earth. Even nature had to obey when He spoke.

Prayer: Lord, when I fear Your power, it is because I recognize my weakness in Your presence. Then, I glorify Your name because You continue to visit Your people. Amen.
