Today's Good News


12/18 Isaiah 7:10-16 (Advent Week 4)
10 Not long after this, the LORD sent this message to King Ahaz: 11 “Ask me for a sign, Ahaz, to prove that I will crush your enemies as I have promised. Ask for anything you like, and make it as difficult as you want.” 12 But the king refused. “No,” he said, “I wouldn’t test the LORD like that.” 13 Then Isaiah said, “Listen well, you royal family of David! You aren’t satisfied to exhaust my patience. You exhaust the patience of God as well! 14 All right then, the Lord himself will choose the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel — ‘God is with us.’ 15 By the time this child is old enough to eat curds and honey, he will know enough to choose what is right and reject what is wrong. 16 But before he knows right from wrong, the two kings you fear so much — the kings of Israel and Aram — will both be dead.
Don’t let your heart be troubled. Trust in Jesus. He changes us. He makes us children of God. We belong to Him and He belongs to us. Don’t let your heart be troubled. Trust in Jesus.
