Psalm 33:20 – 21

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

“Here’s what I mean: All those characters we remember in the Christmas story — Mary, the Wise Men, Shepherds, Angels, Joseph, Zachariah, Elizabeth, Simeon — they all have something in common. They identified what was happening to them as being firmly rooted in the promises of God — promises to His people detailed in the Old Testament.” Chuck Colson.
