Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Acts 13:22–25
22 … he made David their king. In his testimony about him he said, ‘I have found David, son of Jesse, to be a man after my heart, who will carry out all my wishes.’ 23 Of this man’s posterity God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, as he promised; 24 before his coming John had already proclaimed a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. 25 And as John was finishing his work, he said, ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. No, but one is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of the sandals on his feet.’

Some scholars suggest that there may be over 300 Old Testament Scriptures that were fulfilled by Jesus. He is a son of David, He was announced by John the Baptist. Consider among others 2 Sam 7:12-16, Isa 11:1 and Jer 23:5-6

What do the many prophecies of Jesus, coming hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus suggest to me?
What do I need in order to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior?

Pray to God in your own words or perhaps use the prayer below.
Loving Jesus,
You draw me to you through your scriptures.
You draw me to you through my experiences.
Thank you for all that you do to keep me close to you.
Keep sending your Spirit
Keep my faith strong.
Help me to be more like you.
Amen
