I like how you point out in this devotional, that when there is a breakdown in communication between God and man, it is ALWAYS the fault of man. Keep writing!
You did a great job with this devotion. Your scripture reference was wonderful. I would have enjoyed seeing a personal experience about when you had a miscommunication with God, but overall great job!.

30 years ago, on Christmas eve, I was on duty in the Persian Gulf during the Iran hostage crisis. It was my first Christmas away from home, ever.

Your devotional quite adequately revealed God's plan of communication with man. However,with the exception of a few references, I'm not sure if it adequately zeroed in on the topic. I loved your obvious grasp of scripture, and with the exception of a few extraneous commas, your writing style was clear and direct. When possible, try to connect your paragrahs with a transitional statement. Ex: Para.5 "After 6000 year, when the prophecy was fulfilled....." Also, consider connecting your closing statement with your opening statement. This helps to keep your piece from appearing as a series of disconnected ideas.

Ex: Para.7 "Let us remember that centuries ago the Scriptures(Prophets) foretold His....

Thanks for reminding us of God's persistent love for mankind.
