Use this devo as you are able, in whole or in part. Don’t feel compelled to read it all. Simply read and meditate upon whatever catches your attention. The goal is enjoying time with God through His Word and in prayer. Questions about the devotional elements?

Read again, perhaps out loud…how has God’s Word moved you? Ponder and meditate what has connected with your heart or mind…pray to God what it is that has moved you today…turn your thoughts to God and quietly enjoy being with him.
God of mercy, whenever I lose sight of you and my faith falters, whenever I’m tempted to doubt your heart or misconstrue your motives, turn me again to the clearest sign of your generous mercy: your only Son, Jesus. Remind me, too, of the sign of my baptism into Jesus, that I am washed clean and reborn through Christ; grow me up into all of its promises and blessings. Amen. (prayer based on the Westminster Larger Catechism, Question 167).

“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them.” (Luke 1:68)
