Christmas Is…Day 6 

Christmas is…

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. —Isaiah 9:6

Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle! Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory! Selah —Psalm 24:8-10

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you. —1 Peter 5:6-7

Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. —Matthew 11:28

But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me. So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures, because of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. —2 Corinthians 12:9-10

In what area of your life today do you need to know Him as Mighty God? Fall at the feet of Jesus and find rest for your weary soul and strength to face whatever comes your way this day.

Rejoicing in Him!

Isaiah 9_6_Mighty GodWe are just a few days from Christmas! Perhaps your strength and stamina are quickly waning. Perhaps you’re facing a difficult situation this Christmas that is beyond your ability to bear. Take heart and be encouraged! Our God is Mighty! And He allows things into our lives to drive us to the feet of Jesus. He WILL give us things beyond our ability to endure, because He wants us to come to Him, rest in Him and look to Him for our strength. We need Him desperately, but our self-sufficiency is often a barrier to experiencing the abundance of His presence in our lives and all the joy, peace and pleasure that He brings.

I have this little book…

Honestly, I have more Bibles and devotional books than any one person should admit. I love words. I love books. Especially those filled with Truth! I do have a few devotional books that are like old friends. They are my “go-to” books year after year. Most of them are worn, in need of rebinding, marked-up and tear-stained.

Girl with books

But I have this one little book whose permanent home is my nightstand. Continue reading “I have this little book…”
