Bible Reading: Isaiah 9-12

Scripture

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)

Observation

These prophetic words of the coming Messiah are so clear and compelling. Imagine the expectation that followed. We are looking back at these these events, yet also looking forward to His return.

Application

I have a sudden urge to play Handel’s Messiah! Praise God for sending Jesus into our world…and for His return to our planet soon.

Prayer

Maranatha! Come quickly, LORD Jesus! We long for Your return to reign with justice and righteousness. You are truly Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
