IN THE WILDERNESS Daily Devotion for Advent 2020 | Friday, December 18 And the child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the wilderness until the day of his public appearance to Israel. (Luke 1:80) In the wilderness is not a comfortable place. There isn’t much to eat there—locusts and wild honey?—and there isn’t much company, either.
