Luke 1:8 “And it came to pass that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course,”
Luke 1:9 “According to the custom of the priest’s office…”
Luke 1:10 “And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.”
I also saw this powerful principle at play in the life of Job. Hear this:
Job 42:10 “And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
You’ll think that if anybody needs prayers it was Job. But like Zacharias, Job forgot about his own challenges and prayed for others and God took care of his own problems. Hear this:
1Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
Revelation 5:10 “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
As believers you must come to an understanding of your priesthood. Don’t become too engrossed with your own issues that you abandon your office!
A wise man said, “You will get all you want in life if you can help enough people get what they want”.
Zacharias never for once left his duty post. He resumes there and kept leading people in prayer. I can’t stop but wonder how he felt each time people come to him with thanksgiving offerings after they received their miracles.
He never allowed that dither him from his duty post. Friend, stop all this attitude of “God, I won’t pray again if you don’t answer me by so so time”. You cannot threaten God!
If you stop praying and serving you’ll only shortchange yourself. Zacharias kept sowing seed of service and one day, God came down and served him.
He got John the Baptist and forerunner of Jesus. What a privilege!
