Living Like Jesus day 4

SOAP verses of the day: Luke 1:63-64 "He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone's astonishment he wrote,"His name is John." Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God." Write down one or two observations from the passage. I noticed that the verses say that his mouth was opened and his tongue was set free, as though before he had had multiplie reasons he coukdn't speak...almost as though God set up two ways to make sure he couldn't overcome one!! Write down one or two applications from the passage. Zechariah could have let pride and tradition get in the way of God and what he told him to do, since everyone expected his son to be named after him. But he obeyed God, no matter other's expectations. Oh, Lord, that I may have the strength to do the same...
