Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom….
Key Phrase: The Reason for the Season
Christmas is here again, with its lights, decorations, hustle and overall ‘busyness’. Each year, the world finds new ways to celebrate the holidays with fanfare. And the louder the celebration, the less of Jesus we see.
This week as we count down to Christmas, the Lord is asking us to reflect on the real reason for the season as found in Isaiah 9: 6-7 . Its about the gift the world received through Jesus, the one who is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
It’s about the expectation that as we celebrate Jesus we will be partakers of His wonder, of His counsel and of His peace.
Father, this season, help us to keep our eyes on Jesus. Lord, let everything that represents a distraction be brought under your authority. Most of all Lord, in this season let us experience new gifts of your peace, let us experience gifts of your wonders. In Jesus name. Amen
