Daily Devotionals

December 8th, 2023

Happy December! Christmas is on its way and we couldn’t think of a better way to ready our hearts together than by spending the whole month reading through the story of Jesus’ birth and finding some  practical ways to love others. Together, we will work through an Advent reading plan provided by LCBC Church through YouVersion. Our prayer is that as you read about the greatest story ever told, your hearts will be readied for Christ’s arrival.

Read Luke 1:18-20

Zechariah asked the angel, “How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years.”  The angel said to him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their appointed time.”

Zechariah doesn’t understand the plan and is reprimanded for not having faith in what God is doing.


Chances are there is something you have been praying about for a while – a situation at work, a relationship, a class, professor, opportunity – whatever it is – bring it again to God, but this time tell the Lord that you have faith that He is going to work on it.


Ask someone to pray with you about the thing you have been praying about for a while.
