DEVO. 03.16.24

”Awe fell upon the whole neighborhood, and the news of what had happened spread throughout the Judean hills.“ ‭‭(Luke‬ ‭1‬:‭65‬ ‭NLT‬‬)


- This scripture says that “Awe” fell upon the whole neighborhood and news spread.

- What would cause awe to fall upon everyone?

- In this story, Zechariah was told earlier that his wife, who was old and beyond childbearing years, that they would have a baby.

- He was told that his name would be John, not being named after his father, Zechariah.

- His is response was that of doubt.

- He said, “How can I be sure this will happen? I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years.” (Luke‬ ‭1‬:‭18‬)

- The angel Gabriel Responded, ”Since you didn’t believe what I said, you will be silent and unable to speak until the child is born.” (Luke‬ ‭1‬:‭20‬)

- Silence for not having faith and speaking the word of the Lord.

- Then once Elizabeth gave birth and they “were going to name him after his father Zechariah,“ (1‬:‭59‬)

- Zechariah who still was unable to speak, asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone’s astonishment he wrote, “His name is John.”

- Then the Lord opened his mouth to speak again.

- ‭Then it says, “Awe fell upon the whole neighborhood”

- The end result is an awesome experience!

- Do you want the awe of God to fill you and everyone around you?

- Then speak what God wants you to speak from the “secret place”.

- It comes from spending time in His presence.

- When you don’t speak what God wants you to speak it ends up in doubt and confusion.

- Today I pray that “the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart would be pleasing in His sight”. (Psalms‬ ‭19‬:‭14)

- Today, ask God to share His word with you.

- Your job is to receive His Word, carry His Word and share it!

- That’s how you bring the awe of the Lord and spread the awe!

- Have a great weekend!
