12/15 Micah 5:2
2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel, whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf.
Jesus is the Creative Agent of the Godhead. He is Lord and the plan for Him to save us was put into place by Father, Son and Holy Spirit prior to there being anything but them for all things were made by Him and for Him. Jesus is Lord-Rejoice for our joy is complete.
12/14 Galatians 4:4-5
4 But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.
5 God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.
GOD rules over time. He is not limited by it nor is He without complete understanding and knowledge about all time. He reached into our world in Christ and provided a way that we could be free in Christ.
12/13 Romans 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
All are dead in their trespasses and sin. God’s free gift to us is the gift of life in Jesus Christ. He is the only way to the Father. We can do what we want, say what we want and believe what we want but there is only ONE way to the Father and that is through faith in Jesus.
12/12 John 1:14
14 So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
If we have a relationship with Jesus we have seen Him. Maybe in our mind’s eye or in a vision or in a dream but for sure we have a relationship with the living Lord Jesus when we have asked for forgiveness and let Him have control of our life. He is Lord and He will give us the wisdom, mercy, grace and understanding that we need to live a Godly life on a daily basis. His Word for us is always in the now.
12/11 Isaiah 11:1
1 Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot— yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
Our Triune God before the foundation of the world had a plan for our salvation. Jesus is God’s plan and He is the only way to the Father.
12/10 Isaiah 7:14
14 All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).
Born in Bethlehem. He lived a perfect life. He died a perfect death. Raised from the dead by the power of God, Jesus is alive. He defeated death. He paid the price for our forgiveness. Jesus is Lord of all. Praise God from whom all blessings come.
12/09 1 Thessalonians 5:18
18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
We can always think we will be thankful tomorrow but the Word tells us to be thankful today. We can only live now and what is going on in our life now is exactly what we have to be thankful.
12/08 Romans 16:6
6 Give my greetings to Mary, who has worked so hard for your benefit.
People count with the Lord. You count. I count. We may not be kings or queens but we count with the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is concerned about everything that happens in our life. He is seeking our best good. Jesus loves you.
12/07 Jeremiah 33:11
11the sounds of joy and laughter. The joyful voices of bridegrooms and brides will be heard again, along with the joyous songs of people bringing thanksgiving offerings to the LORD . They will sing, ‘Give thanks to the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, for the LORD is good. His faithful love endures forever!’ For I will restore the prosperity of this land to what it was in the past, says the LORD.
Let Jesus have control of your life. He will give you what you need to lead a fruitful and joyous life. Thank the Lord for He is good and He is good to us.
12/06 Isaiah 12:4
4 In that wonderful day you will sing: “Thank the LORD ! Praise his name! Tell the nations what he has done. Let them know how mighty he is!
We serve a mighty God. His power is supreme. His knowledge is limitless. His love is eternal. What a mighty God we serve. He stepped into our world as a man, living under the same restraints as we live under and by faith trusted God the Father. He walked resolutely to the Cross dying for our sin. Resurrected by the power of God, He is alive and does this very moment partner with each one of us so that we too can experience that resurrection power of the Father in our own life. Praise the Lord, Jesus is alive and present in our life.
