Read: Luke 1:13-23

Imagine that you wanted a toy horse or car for Christmas.  However, when you woke up on Christmas morning, what you got was not a TOY horse or car, but a REAL LIFE thoroughbred horse or a 2016 Ford Mustang!  No doubt, that would be a pretty exciting turn of events!  This is what happened to Zechariah.  He had asked God year after year for a baby.  When God finally gives Zechariah his wish, it is more than just a baby . . . his child would be special.  His child would be John the Baptist who would prepare the world to learn about Jesus! 

Question of the day:  In what ways does God often do for us even MORE than we know how to ask for?

NOTE:  Each day between now and Christmas, I will be posting these devotional thoughts concerning Advent to this blog.  The artwork for each day is a product of children from Wildwood Community Church‘s Children’s ministry.  You can also access these posts via the “wildwoodchildren” Instagram feed or Wildwood Community Church’s Facebook page.
