We hope you have been enjoying this year’s Looking Forward to Christmas. As you may know, my wife, Janet writes the Advent devotional guide each year. She also blogs twice weekly at www.janetdenison.com.
Instead of the typical Cultural Commentary, we would like to share her Christmas devotionals to help prepare you to celebrate the birth of our King, who became one of us so that we might be one with him. Our ministry wishes you a blessed Christmas season, filled with his joy and peace.
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
This is the day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad in it. Your day might be quietly filled with memories or it might be currently filled with Christmas chaos. Either way, rejoice and be glad in this day. God made it.
Praise God for the gift of his Son.
Every government in the world is upon his shoulders. Jesus is all-powerful.
The Messiah is your Wonderful Counselor. Give him every care, every thought and allow him to guide you to his perfect truth.
The Mighty God and Everlasting Father is your Prince of Peace. Allow the peace of Christmas to enter your heart and fill your day.
Jesus will always reign. He is always your peace and he is forever your King.
That is the gift of God on this Christmas Day. His Son is your Savior.
Count your blessings and rejoice in the promise of heaven.
May your Christmas Day be perfectly filled with the glory of God and may the coming year be directed by his perfect plan.
