Isaiah 9:1-7

Scripture:  Isaiah 9:1-7

The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.  Isaiah 9:2 

Observation:

Isaiah’s vision of the coming Messiah is full of incredible imagery.  A child, a son, the government on his shoulders, a Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, he is eternal, reigning over his kingdom, with justice and righteousness…and that’s just verses 6 and 7!

What a perfect description of what Jesus would be for all who call on his name.  He is everything to those who follow him!

Application:

What is Jesus to you today?  Is he all these things Isaiah describes him as?  Do you need counsel?  The might of our God? A Father?  A Prince who brings Peace?  He is all these things…and He is all these things to you!  Call upon the one who reigns with justice and righteousness.  He will answer your plea…He can become your everything.

Prayer: 

God, during this Christmas season help me worship You fully. Jesus, You are the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace!  Be my everything today…and every day.  I call on your matchless name to be my all in all.  Hear my plea….I pray in Jesus name, Amen.
