Daily Reading: Luke 2:8-14

Daily Devo:

I love reading about the birth of Christ, every year I am more and more thankful and blessed.

In Luke 2:8-14 we read about the shepherds out in the fields watching over their flock. Then an angel appears to them. Wow! The Angel says to them “Do not be afraid, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.”

When an Angel appears there always follows the words Do not be Afraid.

Do not be afraid.

Are you afraid?

Is there something that this Christmas you have been praying for?

Is there a family member that you haven’t spoken to in a while?

Is there something that has been on your heart, that you have been wanting to do?

Are you afraid of being who God designed you to be?

Do you need encouragement?

God sent an Angel to shepherds out in the field, just going about their work.

We later see in the verse that there was a heavenly multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying-

“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

The heavenly choir worship.

I would have loved to hear them.

Be encouraged this year pray and then worship.

Put on your favourite worship music and sing to the Lord a new song.

Sing to Him.

Do not be afraid.

He is for you.

He is with you.

Mary’s Story

Mary’s Story

Lessons we can learn from Mary

Daily Reading -Luke 1:26-33

Daily Devo –

The story of Mary is one of hope and encouragement.

In the Book of Luke, we see that the Angel Gabriel says to Mary “Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

The Angel said that Mary is highly favoured.

Can you imagine what Mary would be feeling at the moment do you think that she might be thinking “Me highly favoured one, I am not sure, is he speaking to me?” She might have looked around to see if anyone was behind her.

She was probably afraid because the Angel said in Luke 1:30 “Do not be afraid Mary, for you have found favour with God.

We are the daughters of the most high and he sees us and says about this about us that we are fearfully and wonderful made and he is pleased with us. God has an amazing plan and future for our lives, during this Christmas season speak these words over you.

We also know that Mary was obedient to God, she may have been afraid but she trusted God. Mary had faith. She stayed on the journey.

This Christmas time spend some time with God, get away from all the distraction and thank Him for what he is doing in your life.

Trust him lean in to what he is saying to you in this season. What is God trusting you with, what is he asking you to do.

Be blessed.
