Truth of the Word of God

19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you.
20 Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none.
21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst. Psalm 69:19-21

While verses 19-20 can be argued that it referred to Christ on the cross, verse 21 definitely was a prophecy about what the guards gave him to drink while He hung there.

Still, though, His followers for the most part failed Him and left Him alone. Most of His earthly friends had abandoned Him. He even felt abandoned by the Father. How lonely could that have been, going from perfect communion to isolation?

The point of today’s devotional is simple: three prophecies fulfilled in three verses thousands of years apart from when they were written. Another 230 prophecies were given about Jesus alone.

Fulfilled.

Each one represents a small miracle if there is such a thing.

Each one pounds a nail in the coffin of those who the Bible is a bunch of myths meant to perpetrate a lie.

Rejoice today that you can trust the Word of God.
