Though they didn’t see it at the time, God was at work in amazing ways in the lives of Zechariah and Elizabeth. Though they were faithful servants of God, and though they were righteous before God, and though they had a godly heritage, this couple had no children. They took this as a reproach. They carried it as shame. They were broken people. Yet, they trusted God, and they would grow in that trust in the days set out before them.
