Yesterday we looked at Isaiah 9:2, and how the Prophecy of Jesus’ birth connected our lives past, present, and future. Today, I want to look at a couple verses later in the same chapter as we celebrate the birth of Christ.
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.”
(Isaiah 9:6-7, NIV)
God has an incredible zeal for you, and all of humanity, which is why He sent His one and only Son for you and me. May we receive that zeal so we may share God’s hope, peace, love, joy, and light this day and forever more.
Prayer: Happy Birthday, dear Lord! I celebrate you and I thank you for your gracious love. Help me make Christmas a part of my every day living, so it changes me from the inside-out. I lift this prayer in Jesus’ holy living and eternal name. Amen.
