“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.”
The moment we have waiting for is here — Jesus has arrived! Let us rejoice! The adventure is about to begin, and the story is about to get good. So is your story. God has just as big a plan for your life and he did for Jesus. God is good, and he’s going to do good things in your life and in the lives of others. Amidst of the chaos of cooking Christmas dinner and opening presents, slow down today to remember that Jesus is the Prince of Peace. With the arrival of baby Jesus, he is able to enter our messy lives, leading us to live in peace. When God reigns over your life, peace reigns over your life. God has us, he loves us, and he’s in control. Let God’s peace overwhelm you, and rest in him, today and every day. Love your family and friends like God loves us. Hannah and I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.
PRAYER: Thank you thank you, Lord, for you son. Thank you for sending us your son so we may live in peace and freedom from our sin. Thank you for redemption. Thank you for loving us.
