I cannot grasp it, Lord. We are in such a mess! We are lost, lost and perishing sheep cast about with no shepherd in sight.
Isaiah's words to us seem as empty cups, promising the hope of refreshment, having barely enough drops of wine to wet our lips. We are dry and parched for the hope only You can give.
For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” “The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9: 6 TLB
14 The Lord said, “The time is coming when I will fulfill the promise that I made to the people of Israel and Judah. 15 At that time I will choose as king a righteous descendant of David. That king will do what is right and just throughout the land.
Jeremiah 33: 14-15
