DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Friday, December 18, 2015
Today’s scripture reading:
Luke 1:46-55 – Mary responded, “Oh, how I praise the Lord. How I rejoice in God my Savior! For he took notice of his lowly servant girl, and now generation after generation will call me blessed. For he, the Mighty One, is holy, and he has done great things for me. His mercy goes on from generation to generation, to all who fear him. His mighty arm does tremendous things! How he scatters the proud and haughty ones! He has taken princes from their thrones and exalted the lowly. He has satisfied the hungry with good things and sent the rich away with empty hands. And how he has helped his servant Israel! He has not forgotten his promise to be merciful. For he promised our ancestors—Abraham and his children—to be merciful to them forever.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. – Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – As I face today’s challenges, I will seek to show Mary’s unwavering faith.
Prayer: Dear Lord, when we allow fears and anxieties to crowd our minds, help us to deepen our faith and to trust your amazing love. Amen.
