Read Luke 1:68-79

Luke 1:67–79 (GNB):  68  “Let us praise the Lord, the God of Israel! He has come to the help of his people and has set them free.  69  He has provided for us a mighty Saviour, a descendant of his servant David.  70  He promised through his holy prophets long ago  71  that he would save us from our enemies, from the power of all those who hate us.  72  He said he would show mercy to our ancestors and remember his sacred covenant.  73  With a solemn oath to our ancestor Abraham he promised to rescue us from our enemies and allow us to serve him without fear,  75  so that we might be holy and righteous before him all the days of our life.  76  “You, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High God. You will go ahead of the Lord to prepare his road for him,  77  to tell his people that they will be saved by having their sins forgiven.  78  Our God is merciful and tender. He will cause the bright dawn of salvation to rise on us  79  and to shine from heaven on all those who live in the dark shadow of death, to guide our steps into the path of peace.

Think

He would save us from our enemies...

The saying, ‘you are your own worst enemy’ is often true.  What internal enemies do you need saving from?  Doubt, Fear, Cynicism, Resentment?

Guide our steps into the path of peace...

Pray

Let every step I take be gently guided by you into the path of peace.
