‘Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.’ – Luke 1:36-37
God confirms His will. He aligns every part necessary for the accomplishment of His purposes in our lives. As part of this preparation, He brings explicit confirmation.
A confirmation brings verification of what we believe in our hearts. We first have faith in what God has spoken to us, and then see God affirming His word along the way. He desires us to have surety in our steps. He knows we only want His will to be done because He hears the prayers of our willing hearts. We pray to go His way with confidence in His ability. God confirms and affirms His word to us unexpectedly, surely, and clearly.
The more impossible something appears to be, the more affirmation we will receive. God watches over His word to perform it, reassuring us with care and love. A confirmation for Mary was her cousin Elizabeth, who had been barren, but was now expecting a child. We connect with others of like precious faith who also believe in miracles. It confirms to us that with God the impossible is possible. With God, the supernatural is natural, from glory to glory!
